Singapore is in the midst of transforming itself, physically, socially as well as economically. Socially by encouraging more immigration of skilled and professionals, dubbed “foreign talents” into the country to counter the low birth rate of Singaporeans, economically by restructuring and encouraging local companies to grow bigger regionally as well as intensified training of its workforce and physically by developing more iconic landmarks as well as improving and redeveloping existing localities. One of the newer attractions on the island is the so-called Singapore Flyer, which is supposedly the largest Ferris wheel in the world. The attraction had been in operation for about 1.5 years but is struggling to attract visitors.
