“ I was convinced that in any case our people shouldn’t have improved habit of expecting someone’s help. If we wanted to succeed we had to hope for ourselves.”
Lee Kuan Yew, leader of Singapore.
Singapore-a country which is devoid of any natural resources, even sand for building and freshwater are imported. The county with a total square of merely 725 km2 takes 5 place by per capita GDP in the world, which is one and a half times more than Switzerland indicators.
“Singapore miracle” is the hard work of each local resident and the realized dream of Singapore’s founder- Lee Kuan Yew. Clear actions, a planned operation algorithm, and belief in success had helped Lee Kuan Yew create a public service as a competitive sector where the most talented specialists are working.
