It's always great doing business in Singapore

Personally, I really like Singapore. Maybe because it is a kind of "Asia for beginners". Language barriers and culture shock don't come. That makes it easier for us Europeans to make good international contacts. The excellent infrastructure and the high standards of hygiene, organization and reliability make many things easier that can generally become unplanned obstacles abroad.

Populistische Politiker kommen in entscheidende Positionen und zerstören über Jahre gewachsene Strukturen, um vermeintlich ihre nationale Wirtschaft zu unterstützen. Die USA nehmen auch hier eine Vorreiterposition ein.
