Singapore is a high-income economy with a gross national income of $55,150 per capita (Atlas Method), as of 2014, and during the pandemic, it has maintained its status. The country provides the world’s most business-friendly regulatory environment for local entrepreneurs and is ranked among the world’s most competitive economies. The economy is growing again and has recovered from GDP falling in 2020, with travel controls loosened but a number of foreign workers have left due to the travel curbs and job reductions.
