Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Richest Country Comparison (All 188 Countries Ranking)
An animated comparison of the richest country in the world. All 188 countries ranked according to their National Wealth - how rich are they, and if all their money were to convert to gold, how big will the amount of gold they have relative to the size of a human. Also featuring World's richest person Jeff Bezos who is richer than over 100 countries, and Apple, the richest company, which market capitalization is richer than over 150 countries! Source: Credit Suisse (Global Wealth Data Book 2017) Note: 1) Figures listed refers to National Wealth and NOT GDP!!! National Wealth refers to the cumulative sum of every adult marketable value of financial assets plus non-financial assets (principally housing and land) less debts. 2) All 195 United Nation countries included except for Cape Verde, Nauru, Palestine, St Kitts and Nevis, South Sudan, Tuvalu and Vatican City due to lack of available data. 3) Solid Gold Cube refers to a theoretical 1m by 1m by 1m 100% Gold Cube purchased at the current market price.

Are We Running Out of Resources?
Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

Top 10 Highest Oil Producing Countries in the World 2017
Top 10 Oil Producing Countries in the World 2017 This is a list of countries by oil production, as compiled from the U.S. Energy Information Administration database for calendar year 2016, tabulating all countries on a comparable best-estimate basis. Compared with shorter-term data, the full-year figures are less prone to distortion from periodic maintenance shutdowns and other seasonal cycles. The volumes in the table represent crude oil and lease condensate, the hydrocarbon liquids collected at or near the wellhead. The volumes in the table do not include biofuel. They also do not include the increase in liquid volumes during oil refining ("refinery gain"), or liquids separated from natural gas in gas processing plants (natural gas liquids).[1] Under this definition, total world oil production in 2016 averaged 80,622,000 barrels per day. Approximately 68% came from the top ten countries, and an overlapping 44% came from the fourteen current OPEC members, highlighted with blue shading in the table below. For many years, the top three producers have been (alphabetically) Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. Each of these countries experienced major production declines at different times in the past, but since 2014 all three have been producing near their peak rates of 9 to 11 million barrels per day. 1 Russia 10,551,497 2 Saudi Arabia (OPEC) 10,460,710 3 United States 8,875,817 4 Iraq (OPEC) 4,451,516 5 Iran (OPEC) 3,990,956 6 China 3,980,650 7 Canada 3,662,694 8 United Arab Emirates (OPEC) 3,106,077 9 Kuwait (OPEC) 2,923,825 10 Brazil 2,515,459 I hope you will like video, if you do hit that Like button and dont forget to Comment and Subscribe.

10 Poorest Countries in the World
The Top 10 Poorest Countries in the World Number 10: Afghanistan Almost 50% of the population survive on less than $1.00 per day. Afghanistan has made its way to being the 10th poorest country in the world due to war and no exports being traded with this troubled country. Number 9: Madagascar The 4th largest island in the world, Madagascar, is a beautiful country with hundreds of animals/plants that are only found on the island. Tourism could be an enormous asset for the economy of Madagascar but with the constant political turmoil that industry has nose-dived. The average person survives on $1.00 per day. Number 8: Malawi Malawi depends on outside assistance to survive. The poverty level is astounding. Hundreds die every day from hunger and dehydration. People eat ants, beetles, and raw fish. 17 million people live in Malawi. Child abuse and other human rights observations have been documented. Number 7: Niger Niger is ranked last on the United Nations Human Development Index. It is a landlocked country with little access to education, poor healthcare, and extreme poverty. Niger receives over 80% of its budget in aid from foreign countries. Number 6: Central African Republic #6 on the list has huge potential to be one of richest due to having resources available such as uranium and diamonds but unfortunately it is one of the poorest. The income per capita is only $400 per year! Number 5: Eritrea A small country in the horn of Africa, Eritrea has a wide variety of natural resources at its disposal. From gold and silver to marble. Even a country so rich in resources can be poor. Its political structure and infrastructure is non-existent. Travel and movement around the country is extremely difficult without efficient roads. Number 4: Liberia Illegal poaching of endangered species, widespread disease/famine, pollution, political corruption, and many other negative actions contribute to Liberia being the 4th poorest country in the world. Number 3: Burundi Since 1970 there have been 2 mass genocides in Burundi that left millions dead. Burundi is decades behind the rest of the world in regards to communication and technology and there is little access to education. AIDS is widespread and only 2% of the population has a bank account. Coffee and tea are their main exports but not enough is produced to maintain a steady cash flow. Number 2: Zimbabwe Zimbabwe is a country with a high crime rate as well as being one of the poorest in the world. Political corruption, human rights violations, mass murders of those that oppose the government---it all makes up the cocktail that leads to its #2 position on the countdown. Number 1: The 11th largest country in the world (by area) and home to over 75 million people. Congo is also the world’s poorest country. It is a country rich in natural resources, however, there is no political stability and at least some portion of the country has been engaged in civil war since the 1960s. The healthcare system is non-existent and disease and famine wipe out an estimated 47,000 people every month. Time for the question of the day: Considering all that is just terrible and awful in parts of some of these poor poor countries, would you ever consider hitting a life savings of $200K and just moving to one of these countries and living like a king for the rest of your life?

What Creates Wealth?
Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Is it access to natural resources? Is it tax policy? A motivated work force? These are important, but not determinative. The answer is deceptively simple – it’s what’s in our heads: knowledge. Thus, the surest way to promote economic growth is to cultivate an environment that encourages the spread of knowledge. Such an environment requires freedom, which is why the freest societies are the most prosperous. In five minutes, economist George Gilder explains why.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: Let me begin with what sounds like a very simple question: What is the most essential ingredient in wealth creation and economic growth? Almost everyone would answer: Money. Or having a lot of natural resources. But the real answer is . . . knowledge. It's easy to prove. What is the difference between us and a cave man? The only difference is that we know a lot more. Biologically we're the same. The neurons in our brains are the same. The physical world is the same. But our lives are infinitely better. Why? Because of knowledge. You don't have to go back to the cave man to prove this point. You could go back fifty years. New knowledge , say the discovery of penicillin or new algorithms that leads to a better search engines -- always comes as a surprise. We call these surprises innovation because they are inherently unpredictable. New products burst on the scene seemingly out of nowhere. Suddenly, there's electric light or an automobile or an iPhone. Now, of course, these products didn't come from nowhere; they came from the synthesis of accumulated knowledge which led to these innovations, these surprises. By definition, then, innovation can't be planned, it involves dislocation. The makers of buggy whips did not have a great future when Henry Ford introduced the first Model T and it always points to the future. Innovation -- new knowledge -- leads to not only new products but new companies, and whole new industries. And innovation creates wealth; wealth that is ultimately distributed all through an economy. Here's how it works. More freedom, more knowledge, more innovation. And more innovation leads to dynamic economic growth. Less freedom, less knowledge, less innovation, -- less economic growth. So, if freedom promotes knowledge and innovation, which leads to economic growth, why don't all people and governments embrace it? To understand that we have to return to what I said earlier about innovation being a surprise, being unpredictable. This unpredictability makes many people uncomfortable. Their goal is to eliminate surprise. One finds this is in all utopian visions from communism to socialism to the belief that through complex insurance packages bankers could protect themselves from a catastrophic mortgage meltdown. In Europe with its failing welfare states and more and more in the U.S., we see this desire to eliminate surprise in the ever expanding role played by government, bigger bureaucracies, more rules, more regulations. Every new crisis, real or imagined, brings ever more laws. A corrupt energy conglomerate, Enron, implodes in 2001. A year later the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is passed, adding thousands of new pages of regulations to the federal registry. In 2011, the 2,300-page Dodd-Frank Act is written in response to the 2008 financial crises. It has since grown to more than 8,000 pages.

What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning & explanation
What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning - RESOURCE CURSE definition - RESOURCE CURSE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources, specifically non-renewable resources like minerals and fuels, tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources. This is hypothesized to happen for many different reasons, and there are many academic debates about when and why it occurs. Most experts believe the resource curse is not universal or inevitable, but affects certain types of countries or regions under certain conditions. The idea that resources might be more of an economic curse than a blessing began to emerge in debates in the 1950s and 1960s about the economic problems of low and middle-income countries. The term resource curse was first used by Richard Auty in 1993 to describe how countries rich in mineral resources were unable to use that wealth to boost their economies and how, counter-intuitively, these countries had lower economic growth than countries without an abundance of natural resources. An influential study by Jeffrey Sachs and Andrew Warner found a strong correlation between natural resource abundance and poor economic growth. Hundreds of studies have now evaluated the effects of resource wealth on a wide range of economic outcomes, and offered many explanations for how, why, and when a resource curse is likely to occur. While "the lottery analogy has value but also has shortcomings", many observers have likened the resource curse to the difficulties that befall lottery winners who struggle to manage the complex side-effects of newfound wealth. The IMF classifies 51 countries as “resource-rich.” These are countries which derive at least 20% of exports or 20% of fiscal revenue from nonrenewable natural resources. 29 of these countries are low- and lower-middle-income. Common characteristics of these 29 countries include (i) extreme dependence on resource wealth for fiscal revenues, export sales, or both; (ii) low saving rates; (iii) poor growth performance; and (iv) highly volatile resource revenues. A 2016 meta-study finds weak support for the thesis that resource richness adversely affects long-term economic growth. The authors note that "approximately 40% of empirical papers finding a negative effect, 40% finding no effect, and 20% finding a positive effect" but "overall support for the resource curse hypothesis is weak when potential publication bias and method heterogeneity are taken into account." Natural resources are a source of economic rent which can generate large revenues for those controlling them even in the absence of political stability and wider economic growth. Their existence is a potential source of conflict between factions fighting for a share of the revenue, which may take the form of armed separatist conflicts in regions where the resources are produced or internal conflict between different government ministries or departments for access to budgetary allocations. This tends to erode governments' abilities to function effectively. Even when politically stable, countries whose economies are dominated by resource extraction industries tend to be less democratic and more corrupt. According to one academic study, a country that is otherwise typical but has primary commodity exports around 5% of GDP has a 6% risk of conflict, but when exports are 25% of GDP the chance of conflict rises to 33%. "Ethno-political groups are more likely to resort to rebellion rather than using nonviolent means or becoming terrorists when representing regions rich in oil." There are several factors behind the relationship between natural resources and armed conflicts. Resource wealth may increase the vulnerability of countries to conflicts by undermining the quality of governance and economic performance (the "resource curse" argument). Secondly, conflicts can occur over the control and exploitation of resources and the allocation of their revenues (the "resource war" argument). Thirdly, access to resource revenues by belligerents can prolong conflicts (the "conflict resource" argument).

Why Do So Many Nations Want A Piece Of Antarctica? http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27910375 "No people shape Antarctica. It is the driest, coldest, windiest place in the world. So why, then, have Britain, France, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina drawn lines on Antarctica's map, carving up the empty ice with territorial claims? Antarctica is not a country: it has no government and no indigenous population. Instead, the entire continent is set aside as a scientific preserve." Future Of Antarctica http://discoveringantarctica.org.uk/challenges/sustainability/future-of-antarctica/ "Antarctica is fully protected from mineral exploitation and conflict. Under the Antarctic Treaty, Antarctica is a continent dedicated to peace and science.

Singapore's Economic Success | The Economist
When it started life as an independent, separate country in 1965, Singapore’s prospects did not look good. Tiny and underdeveloped, it had no natural resources and a population of relatively recent immigrants with little shared history. The country’s first prime minister, the late Lee Kuan Yew is credited with transforming it. He called one volume of his memoirs, “From Third World to First”. Why did Singapore become an economic success? First, its strategic location and natural harbour helped. It is at the mouth of the Malacca Strait, through which perhaps 40% of world maritime trade passes. It was an important trading post in the 14th century, and again from the 19th, when British diplomat Sir Stamford Raffles founded the modern city. Now it is at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Under Mr Lee, Singapore made the most of these advantages. Second, under Mr Lee, Singapore welcomed foreign trade and investment. Multinationals found Singapore a natural hub and were encouraged to expand and prosper. Third, the government was kept small, efficient and honest—qualities absent in most of Singapore’s neighbours. It regularly tops surveys for the ease of doing business. But the island city is not ideal. Although clean and orderly, it has harsh judicial punishments, a tame press and illiberal social policies. Homosexual acts, for example, remain illegal. Protest demonstrations are rarely permitted. Mr Lee saw his authoritarian style of government as an essential ingredient in Singapore’s success, emphasizing the island’s vulnerability in a potentially hostile neighbourhood. But younger people now question whether Singapore really is that fragile, and resent the restrictions on their freedom.

While these factors are only a drop in the ocean regarding what makes a country economically successful, the poorest countries in the world get these factors all wrong. While the availability of natural resources is the foundation of an economically robust country, utilising the resources well is a whole other aspect.

AMERICA, Why are some COUNTRIES RICH and others POOR? - VisualPolitik EN
Why are some countries rich and others poor? It sounds like an easy question but... nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the origin of wealth is one of the key issues, if not the most important issue, in political debates. Are there poor countries because there are rich countries? Do the richest countries have any special geographical characteristics that determine their success? Are natural resources the source of their wealth? Are their inhabitants smarter? In this video we’ll try to answer these questions, and we’ll do so by taking a look at the history of the American continent.

Algeria-Investment in country's natural resources
T/I: 11:13:19 The terrorism problem inside Algeria is having little impact on investment in the country's oil and gas industry, which provides more than 90 percent of Algeria's foreign revenue. International companies continue to sign joint ventures with the Algerian government, believing that their investments are safe. The authorities have imposed strict security around the facilities and are confident they can't be breached. Nature has provided Algeria with an abundance of hydrocarbons and minerals. At the present rate of production, oil supplies will last for another 40 years, although exploration is expected to yield further reserves. Minerals such as gold, iron and uranium remain virtually untapped.

Caucasus's strategic importance
The US interests in the Caucasus are related to the Azerbaijani and Georgian geographical positions, natural resources, economic influence, energy routes and the Afghanistan Plan. The indispensable strategic position of Azerbaijan makes the country unique. As the country is located between Russia and Iran it serves as a transit state but also a buffer zone for the two. No other country can offer the United States a stronghold that can play a double role. Now consider the economic influence and natural resources of the country and the importance of Azerbaijan increases. Add to this the alternative energy route for Europe that passes through Azerbaijan and Georgia. Then think of the crucial role Azerbaijan plays in the Northern Distribution Network, and the immense value of Azerbaijan and Georgia for the United States is revealed.

Renard Sexton on the Conflicts over Natural Resources in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, natural resources and conflict have an intimate and complex relationship. Conflict assessment surveys have consistently reported that access to natural resources is the cause for more than half of local level conflict incidents in Afghanistan. In particular, competition for land and water are regularly cited as two top causes of conflict in communities across Afghanistan. Renard Sexton is an International Expert on Resources and International Development (New York University). He has been researching in a number of countries on the issue of natural resources and conflict and is currently finalizing his PhD at the New York University. In this interview conducted at the Heinrich Böll Foundation's event "Afghanistan's Transition in the Making? Natural Resources, Conflict and Development" in Berlin on October 28th, 2013, Sexton is giving a broad description on these issues. In detail he is answering the following questions: Looking at the withdrawal of international troops from Afghanistan and the country's economic development and the fact that there are supposed to be trilions of US dollars of resources available in the country: What does this mean for the politics of transition? How does this play out on resources like land and water? What is the most pressing natural resource challenge Afghanistan faces at the moment? Mentioning the influence of regional powers and transboundary water issues. What else is there to come? Do you see any possibility of civil society actors -- primarily in Afghanistan but maybe also on both sides of the border -- of getting involved? More on the transition of Afghanistan on www.boell.de and on this channel in the following interviews with: Khwaga Kakar http://youtu.be/Y3Tp_JZLnQc (part 1) and http://youtu.be/sbaRVb1Enw4 (part 2); and Javed Noorani http://youtu.be/31jWvBrhETs (part 1) and http://youtu.be/Dk9LeHw70nA (part 2).

Top 33 World's Largest Copper Producing Countries
Copper is one of the most used metal by man; it is an essential element for building construction, power generation and transmission, electronic product manufacturing, and the production of industrial machinery and transportation vehicles. There is no evidence that copper even can be absorbed through the skin. But if it were, this could actually lead to copper poisoning, which may actually be more likely than beneficial effects, that is why it is also s vital to the health of all living things (humans, plants, animals, and microorganisms). In humans, copper is essential to the proper functioning of organs and metabolic processes. The human body has complex homeostatic mechanisms which attempt to ensure a constant supply of available copper, while eliminating excess copper whenever this occurs. Unfortunately there is also a downside to the production of copper in many Third World countries where you find a widespread of fraud, negligence and abuse. Global Witness has documented that government officials in many of the world's most impoverished countries turn a blind eye on harsh labor conditions in the artisanal mines, the complete absence of safety precautions and the failure of both the government and companies to take responsibility for the health and safety of tens of thousands of artisanal miners. In many developing countries, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Republic of the Congo and some other Third and Second World countries minors you will usually find that governments of those countries do not place any value to the safety precautions of their safety precautions,this leads to huge risks of accidents and deaths in the mines and very often nothing gets investigated. Yes, the big influx of foreign firms or multinationals pouring into those countries presents opportunities for the political elite to enrich themselves. leaving their citizens in misery, but it is the mentality that needs to change, it is the paradigm of those societies that need to change; progress comes with a price. In much of the very impoverished countries there is a growing amount of resentment because the vast profits resulting from copper and any other metal flow out of their countries without them seeing any change in their financial situation. That is why natural resources can be a blessing and a curse to a developing country. Governments in those countries do not believe that universal rights are values that their societies can implement, unconsciously they are not interested in adopting any form of human rights.

Top 10 Richest Countries in the World 2016
10. Saudi Arabia Per capita income: $56,000 Saudi Arabia has an oil-based economy with solid government control over major economic activities. Oil represents almost all of Saudi revenue and export earnings. Saudi Arabia is the world’s leading oil exporter and second-largest producer. Out of a population of 28 million, eight million are foreign expatriates. Saudis may lose their place among the top 10 wealthiest countries soon, as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted in October that the kingdom may run out of the financial assets needed to support spending within five years, if the oil price stays at its current weak levels. 9. Switzerland Per capita income: $56,000 The producer of chocolate bars and luxury watches is one of the world’s richest economies. Its policy of long-term monetary security and political stability has helped it remain the biggest center for global offshore wealth. 8. United States of America Per capita income: $57,000 The United States is the world’s largest economy with gross domestic product (GDP) estimated at $17.914 trillion as of mid-2015. The U.S. is currently the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas. It is one of the largest trading nations in the world, as well as the world’s second-largest manufacturer. It hosts the New York Stock Exchange, the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization. 7. United Arab Emirates Per capita income: $68,000 The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) economy is the second-largest in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia, with a GDP of $570 billion in 2014. It is extremely reliant on oil, with more than 85% of its economy based on the oil exports. 6. Norway Per capita income: $68,000 Norway has the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. Much of Norway’s economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, hydroelectric power, and fisheries. With a population of more than five million, the country has a very high standard of living, compared with other European countries, and a strongly integrated welfare system. 5. Kuwait Per capita income: $72,000 Kuwait has nearly 10% of the world’s oil reserves and it is the fourth-biggest producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Oil accounts for nearly half of GDP and 95% of export revenues and government income. The Kuwaiti currency is the highest-valued currency unit in the world. One Kuwaiti dinar buys US$3.28. This Persian Gulf state has a population of 3.3 million, with Kuwaitis accounting for only 30% and the rest being expatriates. 4. Brunei Per capita income: $80,000 Oil revenue accounts for more than half of the GDP of this tiny, wealthy country. Substantial income from overseas investment, as well as income from domestic production, help boost the economy. Brunei is the third-largest oil producer in Southeast Asia. It is also the fourth-largest producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world. Brunei’s population is estimated at 418,000. 3. Singapore Per capita income: $85,000 The world’s only sovereign island city-state is noted for its pragmatic and incorrupt governance, which together with its rapid development policies, is widely cited as the “Singapore model.” The nation’s highly developed trade-oriented market economy has been ranked as the most open in the world and the most pro-business with low tax rates. Singapore is also a major Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) outflow financier in the world. With a population estimated at 5.3 million, Singapore is the second-densest sovereign state in the world, after the microstate Monaco. 2. Luxembourg Per capita income: $94,000 Luxembourg, which is the second-smallest state in the European Union, enjoys a degree of economic prosperity very rare among industrialized democracies. It is seen as a diversified industrialized nation, largely depending on the banking, steel, and industrial sectors. With a population of a little more than 500,000, Luxembourg is ranked the eighth least-populous country in Europe. 1. Qatar Per capita income: $146,000 When it comes to the 2015 richest country, Qatar wins by a landslide. The oil boom was the major monetary source of this southwest Asian state, which is ranked as the world’s largest exporter of LNG. Petroleum and liquefied natural gas are the cornerstones of the nation’s economy and represent more than 70% of its total revenue, more than 60% of GDP. Qatari nationals account for a mere 12% of the total population of 2.2 million. Before the emergence of its petrol-based industry, Qatar was a poor pearl fishing country. Today, Qatar is a significant power in the Arab world.

How Singapore Became So Rich in Just Several Decades
What do you know about Singapore? This place is one of the three city-states that exist nowadays. It consists of 63 small islands in Southeast Asia, and it's one of the most progressive countries in the world. Singapore imports everything, from fresh water to sand, because it doesn't have its own natural resources. But that doesn't prevent the country from having an impressive number of rich people. Every sixth Singapore resident has more than $1 million in assets. This is the highest concentration of millionaires on the planet! At the same time, Singapore is the least corrupt country in Asia.

Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - In the 1960s, Singapore was a town with smelly slums and streets controlled by numerous gangs. It had a weak legislative system, uneducated population, rampant corruption, and microscopic salaries. - The country entered the 1970s as a stable state with steady economic growth. And in a couple of decades, an impoverished island-nation turned into a country that was confidently moving toward prosperity. - Nowadays, Singapore has an effective tax system and pension scheme. You see, residents and their employers transfer a part of their income to visible accounts that they can track and monitor at any moment. - The Bukit Ho Swee Fire of 1961 wiped out an area of 4.3 million square feet, turning the homes of 16,000 residents to ash. But all these people got new accommodation within a year. - By 2016, 90% of Singaporeans were living in their own homes. What's more, 80% of these homes were situated in residential units that had been built by the state. - The per capita GDP in Singapore skyrocketed from $500 in 1965 to $14,500 in 1991. That’s a whopping 2,800% in just 26 years! - The Port of Singapore is the second largest in the world. It's connected with 600 other ports in 123 different countries. - Besides being a huge transportation center, Singapore is also a smart city, meaning over 90% of its residents have smartphones. - The little city-state houses a staggering number of sights and entertainment that attract millions of tourists from all over the world.
