What is a “good country” to me? Do I consider Singapore a good country?
A “good country” to me is a country that is able to effectively and efficiently manage their country’s resources. A good country should possess these few traits: Egalitarian, Self-sustaining, Community Spirit, Resilience and Continous Growth.
Singapore to me is a good country, even though we do not have natural resources such as oil and land, we strategically utilised our geographical location to make us one of the world’s largest trading hub and progressed significantly since its independence in 1965. Singapore also relies on its citizens to contribute to its economy. As Singapore is able to produce highly-skilled workers and professionals, our banking and finance industry is strong.
