3. Weakness 3.1 Space Constraint Space constraint is one of the major problems that Singapore is facing. Singapore only has a land space of 71,400 hectares (ha) hence, with small land area and a high population, she faces the challenge of using her land efficiently and effectively to obtain a high productivity. Moreover, Singapore has to take into consideration of creating a sustainable living space for her citizens. In comparison with Shanghai that surpassed Singapore as the world’s busiest trading port in 2011, has a land space of 6,219 sq.
Under this system, all Singaporeans are given equal opportunities for success, regardless of their background. As a result, this has ensured that only the most competent Singaporeans govern the country, which has largely benefitted the nation and is partly the reason why Singapore has been able to move from the Third World to the First. Other measures taken by the government to promote equal social mobility include increased benefits for the socioeconomically disadvantaged and the middle class, such as investing in education and making healthcare more affordable (Bell & Li,
Consequently, the powerful countries are the main beneficiaries of the land lease. Nevertheless, the poor countries like Sri Lanka can benefit from Chinese investment. Developing countries lack capital for investment, and China becomes a huge source of capital for them, especially when other western countries are reluctant to invest due to various reasons. That is why the present government of Mr. RW that criticized the former government for taking Chinese loans when in the opposition does the same thing after assuming office. Also, it helps transfer of technology from China to Sri Lanka.
The population of immigrants would increase drastically. Overpopulation will have a negative impact in the economy. There would be a dramatic increase in the demand for food, minerals, fuel and other resources. Many farms will become more vulnerable, because people would lose their crops and animals, which would leave them to starve. Starvation will cause many deaths to occur.
This is because, there will be an increasing need for more land space to develop more facilities to cater to the growing population as well as more resources would be required to be imported from other countries Singapore to sustain the population. Furthermore, overpopulation would cause overcrowding everywhere as the square metre of space per person will drastically be reduced. Overtime, the growth in Singapore would eventually reach a limit where the country can no longer provide resources to sustain the population causing the infrastructure to decline. In this stage, Singapore would be faced with a similar vicious cycle as India with the exception of having insufficient sources as the land space would have been intensively used preventing possible expansion in business activities to create jobs. Hence, resulting in the decline in economy and lowered standard of
India is facing so many difficulties in managing the Urbanization. So we need a proper plan to manage the population in the urban area. The following may be the most important in managing urbanization: Urban Governance, Inclusive cities, planning, funding, capacity building and low-income housing. India also needs to start a process where the urban issues are debated with the evolution of meaningful solutions. Governance in Urban India Reforms should be done to enable true devolution of responsibilities and power
Almost all the human’s daily activities negatively impact the whole globe, and as the population increases, so does the damage (Duncan). The first cause of overpopulation is the decline in the world's populations death rates. The death rates are only 55.3 million per year; while the birth rates are 131.4 million per year. One could see that the number of deaths is almost half the number of births. However, if we had balanced birth and death rates together; they would cancel out each other.
One of many cases is that birth is increasing, because women are constantly getting pregnant. b. A lot of immigration occurs daily in different countries. c. The death rates have declined due to people’s improved eating habits, and have been taking care of themselves. Subtopic 2.
3, port logistics and manufacturing development. Singapore government has always attached importance to developing the manufacturing sector, the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries manufacturing as a pillar of development. Manufacturing accounted for the proportion of the value of domestic production has remained at around 25%, in recent years there is an upward trend, reaching 33.4% in 2005. Manufacturing development, especially the development of the port industry, led to the development and prosperity of the port. 4, government support logistics development.
That is crazy when you compare it to the other big landmarks. The growth of our population is exponential, and it has really showed that in the past 50 years or so. There are quite a few reasons our population is growing so fast. Not only are there more people meaning more births, but death is a lot less "common" now. Advancements in technology means better medical services, we now have cures and vaccines to diseases that used to kill thousands.
