SINGAPORE CHRONICLES : GATEWAYS
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press are jointly launching the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015. This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject. Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as an historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.

Singapore has leveraged on its strategic location and open economy to become a global maritime and logistics centre. In particular, the port has grown from being just a terminal for ships to berth in, to hosting a maritime industry. On the aviation front, Singapore has moved from a mere airfield in Kallang to Changi Airport, among the best in the
world and connected to more than 200 cities. There is also a vibrant aerospace industry. However, intense challenges lie ahead. This book examines how Singapore needs to raise the bar to remain a strategic gateway to the region and the rest of the world.
