Abstract. This paper directs attention to the rapid industrial changes experienced by the city state in the past thirty years and the problems associated with a maturing economy.

The analysis indicates that with land and labour resources becoming fully utilised, the city-state adjusts to the requirements of international capital by increasing the regional, technical, and sectoral division of labour.
