Optimising space a key focus for Singapore: PM
Space in Singapore could be used more effectively, such as by building undergrounds or on floating structures. And land could be optimised by distributing residences and offices, cutting the need to commute. Working out how to do these two things effectively is the focus of Singapore's new National Innovation Challenge, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the official opening of the Create centre yesterday. The centre at the National University of Singapore's University Town is home to high-level research collaborations between Singapore and various international institutions such as Cambridge University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The new $135 million National Innovation Challenge is Singapore's second. The first, launched last year, was on energy resilience for sustainable growth.

Citibank credit card holders can pay bills by SMS
Citibank credit card holders can now pay bills via SMS thanks to a service launched on Wednesday. It involves sending customers a message when their credit card bill is ready. Customers can then pay by replying to the SMS. They can pay the full amount or just the minimum sum. Ms Shirley Ramli, head of e-business at Citibank Singapore, said the service will mean people can avoid having to write cheques or queue up to pay bills. "They will also receive a mini-statement and payment reminder via SMS so they no longer have to worry about missing their credit card bill," she added.

Government pledges enough land for needs of industry
There will be enough land released to satisfy the needs of industrialists, the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) pledged on Sunday. The Government also said it will maintain efforts to ensure that the space is not misused by non-industrial users, which could be driving up prices and rents. Prices of industrial land have surged 27 per cent in the first nine months of the year, a situation that has led to concerns that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are being hit hard by the rising costs. Acknowledging that prices have continued to rise, an MTI spokesman said "the Government will continue to release sufficient land to meet the needs of industrialists".
