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.
