Over the past fifty years, Singapore has become one of the world’s most prosperous countries and a dynamic node in the world economy.

A new Lowy Analysis Paper examines not only what has driven Singapore’s success in establishing itself as a competitive base of high-value manufacturing and other value-added services, but also how the country, amid regional and global challenges, must adapt its model so as to retain its position at the centre of flows of trade, investment and people.

Manu Bhaskaran, the report’s author and CEO of consulting firm Centennial Asia, joins Lowy Institute Research Fellow Matthew Busch to discuss his paper and how Singapore can find the policy mix and economic fundamentals to see off its challenges.
