Singapore forms the heart of ASEAN countries Singapore, widely acknowledged for its enormous success in building a prosperous nation during the last 40 years, forms the heart of ASEAN countries. Many Western, Asian, and Chinese companies and institutions have management centres in Singapore. Singapore has developed its comparative strengths in fields of banking, health care, education, research, and tourism and strives for world-class quality and innovation. Interestingly, it is often compared to Switzerland. Anglo-Saxon business world and the dynamics of Asia Singapore boasts an open, multi-ethnic culture, comprising both the Anglo-Saxon business world and the dynamic region of Asia. Young academics should not miss the opportunity to gain a hands-on learning experience in such a dynamic place, where American and British style meets the Asian speed of growth. For this reason, many other western universities have established contacts with institutions in Singapore, some even setting up campuses there.
