if you notice, sg is not very keen on becoming a manufacturing hub because we lack the space to have large scale manufacturing and our labour is damn expensive to do that. not only that u need complimentary industry to setup shop here like tires manufacturing, engine manufacturing, etc to attract automotive companies to setup their assembly plant here.

manufacturing plant is not possible, so we entice MNC to setup regional HQ, APAC HQ in Singapore. in this way, all the financial planning, management activities, sales, supply chain planning activities of SEA or APAC can be done in SG as we have the tax advantage, bilingual ability and environment to do all these. u can go see alot of the MNC has their asia HQ based in sg, like apple south east asia, etc

Let's face it singapore is a country coolies and farmers,no talent...we have all the money in the world 300 bil cpf fund 260 bil temasek fund,300 bil GIC fund,we got money coming out the ying yang we can share it with our friends America,Australia and israel.we can make and develop anything we want but don't,why?because we can't....we have no clue how to make our own lifts,we have no clue how to make trains,how to make a Terrex,how to make our own guns,despite pouring billions into research.we got useless lumps of white matter for brains...only thing good sinkies are is taking standardized tests....when it comes to creativity,genius and practical intelligence we measure a big fat zero,just compare us to the Japs and koreans.have I mentioned our engineers are worthless?name one original thing a sinkie engineer has ever come up with and manufactured.the good sinkies are for is to be mediocre work drones for MNCs and generate money for our GDP.

find it funny how u all like to compare Singapore with Japan, Germany and USA.

see our land size and our population. How to become manufacturing hub?

singapore better off doing more high-value work like biomedical R&D, banking, and other financial services sua.

manufacturing? how many of u all wan work in factories first?
