What is wrong with show casing Singapore's infrastructure ? If you don't promote Singapore, tourists, MICE delegations and MNCs like financial institutions may not be in Singapore. With these people coming to town, what u have is money spent - hotels rooms are filled, taxis are in demand, food n beverage establishments get patronized, retailers can sell things, office and shopping places facilities are needed thus benefiting contractors and developers - in short you have foreign money coming in to support whole industries which would otherwise not exist. For a country without raw materials and cheap labor, this is a way of keeping the wheels of the economy moving. Look at home ownership numbers, look at the number of new cars on the road, look at mobile phones ownership, look at the holidays that Singaporeans take, look at the amount that they spend on renovation and gadgets for their homes or toys like camera & lenses, car accessories - all these are the result of the economy, Yes ?
