What's more, if you plan to move your family to Singapore, you will find some of the best childcare in the world, as well as a high quality of education for your kids — ranked the third best in the world.

Singapore has a large community of expats, despite the city regularly being ranked among the most expensive cities in the world, as job prospects are high, and healthcare and education are of the highest standards. Most residents of Singapore feel very safe living there and feel financially stable, living in a healthy economy. Unemployment is extremely low and its economy continues to grow. Industries in Singapore focus around electronics, chemicals, financial services, oil-drilling equipment and rubber processing and products.
