Region Asia
Summary

How much is Singapore affected by the Asian crisis? What is the future of Singapore, given the current difficulties of the region and beyond? Different perspectives are given, from very optimistic to some negative ones. It goes beyond the particularity or uniqueness, or singularity of Singapore, to look at the region.

Teaching objectives

The case is an excellent instrument to launch a debate, either in Singapore or about Singapore, on the future of the city-state. In executive courses, where participants are familiar with (or have knowledge about) Singapore, it generates a hot discussion and a deep reflection about strategic options for the country (and their possible impact on the region).
