Singapore jumped into 3rd place in the 2018 Bloomberg Innovation Index

Singapore, innovation nation.

Singapore raised 3 positions to the third position worldwide in the Bloomberg ranking in innovation thanks to its solid investment in science and technology, research and development. This result clearly shows that the government’s policies to create a truly smart nation is paying off. If this state of affairs is maintained it can lead eventually to a situation when Singapore’s high tech industrial park will drive the economy as a whole and add to Singapore’s traditional strength in commerce and trade, making it less vulnerable to fluctuations in the world economy with the creation of more highly skilled jobs with higher salaries and opportunities for its population.

– Professor Antonio Castro Neto
