I hope he tells Singaporeans that if they intend to do some shopping on a Sunday whilst visiting us that they had better do some research to see who the "privileged few" shopping centres are that can offer products for sale.

Take note colin, no resources, the size of perth, twice the population, spectacular environment, a city for people to enjoy, day or night and no crime. Note the modern buildings, happy people, prosperous way of life, high standard of education and most of all world class/leading airport. A country created on a island from pretty much nothing. thats what i call a vision for ugly.

Congrats Colin. About time a WA Government took this partner seriously! Last time was Richard Court in the mid-90's, I was at the opening of the Commerce and Tourism joint offices and it was a really positive initiative. The potential for expertise and capability is huge. Upon returning to Perth in the late 90's I was shattered at the complete lack of interest in the SE Asia region by Corporates... I was last there in March, it was interesting to note so many happy, young people out and about enjoying themselves, laughing, walking around safely! They were all sober and it was around midnight!!! So much for our social values; pubs, booze, bogan, larrikins etc. Maybe its the consequence of crime??

The whole of Asian markets is a good investment place. Singapore is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. Its rapid development has gained the confidence of businesses across the globe. People are involved in investing in real estate which is booming. Overall, we are seeing a good amount of development in Asian economies compared to world's developed nations in the middle of financial crises.
