As Singapore enters its 50th year of independence, it is a good time to reflect on its past as well as look to the future. 50 Years of Singapore-Europe Relations: Celebrating Singapore's Connections with Europe is one such contribution to the wide collection of books commemorating Singapore's 50th birthday. The essays and articles in this edited volume capture historical moments, reveal the heartfelt wishes and thoughtful comments of Europeans who have made Singapore their home, chronicle some of the long-standing partnerships and ponder the future challenges of Singapore. This unique book contains a wide range of essays and articles reflecting on the strong connections that Singapore enjoys with Europe, not only at the official level, but also through the contributions that Europeans and European companies have made — and continue to make — which enrich Singaporean society. These essays provide a kaleidoscope of views on Singapore — they explore how close ties and partnerships are forged between nations, how businesses see Singapore as a trustworthy partner and place to invest and establish roots, and, at a more personal level, the articles also present different perspectives on the strengths, and at times, the weaknesses of Singapore as viewed through the eyes of Europeans who live and work in Singapore and consider it as their home. In commemorating Singapore's 50th birthday, this book will add to the understanding of the richness and diversity of Singapore society, and help readers appreciate and reflect on how openness and connectivity have contributed to the success of Singapore in its first 50 years.

This book describes in vivid detail how a newly independent nation with neither a history of technical education nor industry, developed in a short period of time a world-class system of technical and vocational education that helped it make rapid progress in its manufacturing and industrial sector. The economy and the education sector both developed in parallel, with each complementing the other, utilizing strategies and making the decisions that were to bring the country quickly to advanced status. Studies show that premature investment in higher education at the expense of technical and vocational education has created many leaders but few doers, leading to high unemployment. The Singapore Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) story demonstrates how governmental support helped changed the image of technical and vocational education to one equal with higher education, yet including bridges and ladders to allow everyone to maximize their potential. Contents:The Colonial LegacyThe Adrenalin of IndependenceVocational Training Takes OffThe Role of the Economic Development Board in Technical EducationPolytechnics Come of AgeThe Transformation of TVETThe Labour Movement and Worker UpgradingConnecting TVET with Higher EducationPreparing for a Skills-Based FutureKey Lessons for Policy-Makers Readership: Professional researchers, government officials, as well as the general public.

The Malay/Muslim community, comprising approximately 13% of Singapore's population, is an integral part of modern Singapore's formative years. The community has come a long way and accomplished plenty. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong lauded the community's growth and its efforts in nation-building in the 2015 National Day Rally, "The Malay/Muslim community is an integral part of Singapore ... and they have contributed significantly to our nation's harmony and progress." 50 Years of Malay/Muslim Community in Singapore highlights the progress, the contributions and the challenges of the community for the past 50 years since Singapore's independence in 1965.

' Singapore''s success story is essentially a "people" story. Singaporeans have good reason to celebrate the nation''s golden jubilee with pride. In the short space of five decades the country has moved from Third World to First, and its real GDP has grown by 40 times! For this phenomenal progress, credit must go to its people, the Republic''s primary resource. Against all odds and amidst dire predictions, Singaporeans proved that a united and resourceful community could build a nation from scratch. This book is dedicated to one segment of these Singaporeans — the Chinese community. In particular, this collection of essays focuses on the Chinese speaking members of the community whose many contributions are less familiar to those brought up on a strict diet of the English language. This celebratory book is divided into four broad categories. The first section examines the major Chinese organisations and their contributions in the past five decades. These include the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations, the Chinese Development Assistance Council and the Chinese Heritage Centre. In addition, it looks at the history and work of some of the social clubs and charitable organisations in the Chinese community. The second section examines some community issues that have engaged the Chinese community in Singapore''s first 50 years. Two senior journalists and two academics review the evolution of the Chinese language, the integration of new immigrants from China and the influence of Chinese religions. The five essays in the third section trace the development of Chinese visual and performing art in the Republic. The last section looks at the interactions between Singapore''s Chinese community and China on the one hand, and with the regional Chinese communities on the other. The contributors of this salute to the Chinese community are/ have been directly involved or are passionate about the subjects of their essays. Readership: General public, researchers and students interested in learning about the significant roles and contributors of the Chinese community in Singapore in the last 50 years. Key Features:This is first of its kind in English, credible, holistic and readableA good summary of the community after 50 years of independenceContributors are specially invited because of their close association to the organisations and the different topicsKeywords:Chinese Community;Chineses Language;New Immigrants;Chinese Organisations;Chinese Culture;External Relations "As Singapore celebrates SG50 this year, the publication of this book to document the Chinese community''s contributions towards nation-building, is indeed timely and of great significance. This book records the resilience, the gumption and the confidence exemplified by our forefathers as they toiled to build a nation we are proud of today.The book not only encapsulates the development of the Chinese community in Singapore, it is also a tribute to our pioneers who have dedicated their lives to the nation." Chua Thian Poh President of Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations “We are delighted that the Chamber''s achievements and contributions have been included in this celebratory book on Singapore''s Chinese community. We take pride that the SCCCI with its network of 4,000 corporate members and more than 150 trade association members covering 40,000 enterprises, has made its mark in the history of Singapore.” Thomas Chua President of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry '
