In terms of technological infrastructure already in place like the EZ Link card, e-services, etc, Singapore is not behind times.Originally Posted by smurfman
In terms of social attitudes, acceptance and appreciation of arts, music and sports, it still is behind.
This was also said by MM Lee (then SM Lee) in a new year's day message 2-3 years ago which appeared on the front page of The Straits Times. He reckons, and I too concur, that it will be another 20 years before S'pore reaches to the level of first world countries like US and UK.
I'm not keen on being involved in a lengthy debate/discussion here about this matter hence I may not reply.
