About this item
This book provides an analysis of Singapore’s development and success as an international financial centre (IFC).

The author focuses specifically on the factors that have contributed to the city-state’s success and discusses the policy lessons that can be derived from it. The book describes the historical, spatial, political and policy factors that contributed to Singapore’s development as a leading Asian financial centre and global city, and will be of interest to both policy scholars and practitioners.
