Singapore is a poor little market in a dark corner of Asia… It is going down the drain

This publication marks Singapore’s Golden Jubilee and commemorates over fifty years of cooperation between Singapore and the UNDP . This partnership commenced when Dr Albert Winsemius (1910-1996) first visited Singapore as the leader of an UN mission in October 1960.
After studying the nation’s prospects, he delivered a report that proved to be a roadmap for Singapore’s development. In examining Singapore’s success, the publication offers important lessons for sustainable development. It also shows how Singapore’s lasting close working relations with UNDP owe much to Winsemius. The ‘Singapore story’ remains an exemplar of a nation’s successful development, supported by UNDP.
