Singapore - Data and E-Services


Singapore is proud of the way it has embraced the Internet. It has built a broadly based Internet awareness through the early adoption of a range of innovative data technologies and platforms. This report looks at some of the public data communications services that have been put in place. The report also looks at how Singapore has, with the help of a favourable regulatory regime, been working to influence the direction the world is taking in going online. While the rate of development of e-commerce has been conspicuously erratic over the last few years, Singapore continues to systematically promote the ever wider application of Internet within the community.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
