Singapore Chronicles - Finance

  • Ignatius Low

Publisher: Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press

Singapore is one of the premier 铿乶ancial centres in the world. It is one of the biggest markets for the trading of foreign exchange and 铿乶ancial derivatives, and home to hundreds of global 铿乶ancial institutions, from banks and insurers to oil traders and hedge fund managers. This book traces the development of Singapore鈥檚 铿乶ancial sector from its early supporting role in a thriving British colonial trading outpost to its rapid expansion after the nation鈥檚 Independence in 1965.聽 It is the story of how policymakers here managed to maintain a reputation for regulation and supervision of a high standard, and yet take risks to innovate boldly and seize global opportunities when they arose.

Singapore Chronicles - Policing

  • Asad Latif

Publisher: Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press

Singapore is simultaneously praised for its extraordinary safety and criticised for its draconian laws. This primer seeks to explain Singapore鈥檚 achievements in creating a law-abiding society by making public peace and well-being as well as security of life, limb and property a centrepiece of the good life. To that end, tough laws exist against crimes such as murder, narcotics, corruption, commercial crime and cybercrime. This book also examines the role played by the prison system, internal security laws and border security in the state鈥檚 overall approach to preserving a peaceful and secure nation.

The 'ACI Research Projects: Summary Report' is intended to give a broad overview of the research projects undertaken by the Institute. As highlighted in the ACI Impact Report, besides research, the Institute engages in outreach and convening activities in order to expand our footprint of impact and bring home the necessary data in order to conduct the research. Nevertheless, this summary report hopes to give the reader interested in our research output an indication of the type of research ACI ultimately engages in.
