From humble beginnings in entrepot trade, Singapore has grown into a celebrated business and financial hub; offering a host of activities in international trade and business. Singapore's success was by no means an accident but one which was brought about by the effective leadership of the government who have steered the economy towards the areas of growth. All these would not have been made possible without the efforts of a cohesive, well-trained and productive Iabour force. With regards to the banking and financial sector, it is the aim of the government to nurture and promote the region into a one-stop-full-service financial centre. An Institute of Banking and Finance (IBF) in the third quarter of 1993 identified the three latest growth areas over 1992-1993 period as forex/treasury, futures/options and investment management. On a more recent note, an assessment made in early January 1994 by the Association of Banks of Singapore (ABS) that the banking and financial sector will be expecting another bumper year ahead, riding on the back of a prosperous Singapore economy. Consequently, with the economic and telecommunication infrastructure in place, a stable political climate and a strong and resilient economy, a pool of well educated and trained professional expertise would be a valuable edge to the achievement of this mission.
