Impact of US Economy on Singapore Economy


In 2002, expenditure on R&D totaled $3,405 million, which was 2.19% of gross domestic product (GDP). Singapore aims to close the gap with developed countries by raising its R&D expenditure to the industrialized nations' average of 2% to 3% of GDP. The Government has committed a total of S$7 billion to the third National Science & Technology 2005 (S&T 2005) Plan. This details Singapore's intention to identify and build world-class science and technology capabilities in niche areas, and to strengthen private sector R&D initiatives.

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Johns Hopkins Singapore are some of Singapore's premier institutions spearheading Impact of US Economy on Singapore Economy in areas such as biomedical sciences.

There are also several job opportunities at the A*STAR HQ, Institute of High Performance Computing Bioinformatics Institute, Institute for Infocomm Research, Biomedical Sciences Institutes, Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, Bioprocessing Technology Institute, Institute of Microelectronics, Centre for Molecular Medicine, Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, Data Storage Institute, Singapore Bioimaging Consortium, Exploit Technologies Pte Ltd, Singapore Immunology Network, Genome Institute of Singapore, Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, Institute of Bioengineering & Nanotechnology, Singapore Stem Cell Consortium and Institute of Chemical & Engineering Sciences.
