Singapore is a stimulating place to live and work. It unites a multicultural population in a cosmopolitan city with a pleasant and safe environment. The mixture of Asian roots with strong European and American elements and an essentially English speaking society provides people from all nationalities with an optimal basis for integration. For convenient travelling, Singapore’s major aviation hub provides a variety of direct and non-stop connections to almost all parts of the world.
