In the 80's and 90's traditional Singaporean SME's (Small and Medium Enterprises) were highly dependent upon their large OEMs customers. After declaring its independence in 1965, Singapore, which had no natural resources, chose to turn to foreign companies as vehicles to achieve industrial growth and create jobs. The government of Lee Kuan Yew provided industrial infrastructure, peaceful employer-employee relations, a well educated workforce, low taxes and a logistic hub.
Hawker centers are a unique specialty of Singapore. They are large open areas with a wide variety of small stalls selling affordable cooked food. Many of my Singaporeans friends hardly cook at home as they enjoy walking down to the hawker center at dinner time. Besides offering affordable and diverse dishes, hawker centers also serve as a social link between the multicultural communities of Singapore.
