As far as modern Singapore is concerned, it has strong links with the year1819. It was Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles who constructed a British Port on this island. During the British Rule it evolved as a crucial trading center for India and China.
Japan conquered Singapore at the time of the Second World War. After the end of the World War II the chances were that Singapore would merge with the Federation of the Malay and would be henceforth known as Malaysia. This was not to be and the reason for it is the disputes that arose between Malaysia' s Alliance Party and the People's Action Party of Singapore. The result of this dispute was that Singapore in the year 1965 on the 9th of August emerged as an independent nation.
It is now one of the most flourishing nations of the world. To know more about the History of Singapore browse through the following links.
