The country's situation as wealth management place for the region has a foundation by things like the exportation of various goods majorly electronics business and chemical industries. Consequently, the fares award Singapore much-required money to purchase materials it doesn't naturally have. Since the nation has water issues we have already discussed in our previous blogs, agribusiness isn't that all well developed if compare with other industrial sectors, which is the reason the country relies upon the agro-technology park. 

In 2016, the export value remained at $338.082 billion* with the significant export into sectors like equipment and machineries, Pharmaceuticals and chemical products, refined petroleum products, and electronics and communication. On the other hand Imports remained at $291.908 billion* and included things like Food, minerals etc. 


By seeing the import and export transactions data it can be understood that the major industries in Singapore on which the country's economy is based are majorly Chemical, Oil & Gas trading, Electronic goods, petroleum exploration, drilling equipment and financial services. In past few years technology companies are also growing in the country on a rapid pace. 


Water issues in the country and its Impact on Agriculture Industry. 

In last few decades Singapore has witnessed a rapid industrialization after its Independence. Due to lack of natural resources of water and almost no ground water agriculture in the country greatly reduced during 1980s and country has to put a lot in food imports. 

Before modernization of the city places like Orchrad Road, which was a long corridor of  agricultural orchards suddenly disappeared and country became more reliant on imported goods from overseas. 

Singapore ranked 1st on the Food Security Index** as the agricultural production in Singapore is not enough to fulfill the needs of its  people and this is the reason almost 80% of countries food come from overseas. 


Government of Singapore is working very aggressively towards its 30 by 30 goal which is to achieve the target of becoming 30% self sufficient in food production by the year 2030. To achieve this country is working on High tech food parks and vegetable farms 

During COVID-19 pandemic country realized the importance of food supply and therefore the government is encouraging urban farming on priority.
