The Asian Tiger, Singapore, has emerged as one of the most competitive and business friendly nations in the world. In the past three decades, it has been transformed from a third world country into one of the richest nations in the world. The world's highest PC penetration among households, the well-networked broadband systems and the high-tech transport system - all symbolize Singapore's economic achievements. Singapore has consistently attracted foreign investments. Many multinational corporations have located their regional headquarters here.

One of the challenges which the country faces currently is retaining its core Asian values, even as it is exposed to Western business practices and lifestyles.

Another challenge is to encourage entrepreneurship in a country where most people are affluent. The case can be used to trigger a classroom discussion on the links between economic development, free trade and foreign investment.
