Seletar Aerospace Park is a 300-hectare aviation hub - a strategic development that will launch Singapore's goal to become a global aviation hub, where maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services are provided in an environment surrounded by world-class aerospace companies and facilities.
Singapores aerospace industry has soared to new heights with an average growth rate of 13 per cent since 1990. The industry employed some 19,000 people and contributed S$6.9 billion in output in 2007. Fuelling the industrys growth, Seletar Aerospace Park will add new market segments such as narrow-body and smaller aircraft to Singapores already strong MRO industry of commercial wide-body aircraft. By laying a strong foundation for Seletar Aerospace Park,
Singapore will attract emerging companies looking for cost-competitive and reliable manufacturing locations to produce and assemble aerospace components.
Seletar Aerospace Park will host a wide range of activities, including: Manufacturing and assembly of aircraft engines, components and small aircrafts Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul of aircrafts & components Business & General Aviation Training and R&D
Companies at Seletar Aerospace Park benefit from synergies in this integrated environment that include economies-of-scale and increased efficiency. There is also significant scope for new industry collaborations alliances brought about by the Parks shared infrastructure, and close proximity to suppliers, customers and partners within the tight-knit aerospace community.
Singapores offshore and marine industry has weathered many storms and demonstrated resilience in achieving its current position. The industry started off modestly in the 1960s as part
of Singapores industralisation plan but has seen significant growth over the last 40 years. It has evolved from a small regional ship repair and building centre into a world-class offshore and marine hub with a wide range of capabilities, from rig building, ship-repair and FPSO conversion, specialised offshore vessel construction, offshore and marine supporting services, and oil and gas equipment manufacturing. Today, Singapore has achieved global leadership position in the construction of jack-up and semisubmersible oil rigs. We are also one of the world's leaders in the construction of specialised or customised vessels like anchor handling tugs or offshore support vessels providing supporting services to offshore and marine operations. Singapore is also the leading location in the Asia Pacific for the manufacturing of oil and gas equipment and there have been numerous world renowned companies who have established sophisticated and state of the art manufacturing facilities here. Singapore's offshore and marine sector has been growing at a compound annual growth rate of almost 30% since 2004, making it one of the fastest growing sectors in Singapore's economy in the last few years. As at 2008, 7.3% of Singapore's total manufacturing output and 9.3% of the manufacturing sectors VA could be attributed to the offshore and marine sector. The industry employed close to 70,000 people of which 12,000 are skilled workers.
Singapore aims to be a global hub in the development and manufacture of clean technology products. This promising new industry the cleantech cluster is expected to contribute S$3 billion to Singapores gross domestic product and create 18,000 jobs across a broad range of areas, including renewable energy, water and environment technologies, energy efficiency by 2015. To grow the cleantech industry, the government has mapped out a blueprint comprising five key pillars: R&D, manpower development, grooming of Singapore-based enterprises, branding of the industry and nurturing a vibrant industry eco-system. JTC has been working together with other government agencies to develop a CleanTech park catering to companies focusing on R&D, test-bedding and prototyping activities into clean technology.
Singapores vision is to be the Biopolis of Asia, a leading international biomedical sciences cluster advancing human health by achieving excellence across the entire value chain. The Government has invested in more than S$5billion in building up industrial, human and intellectual capital and remains fully commited to developing this sector. Biopolis is a biomedical R&D hub at one-north, purpose-built to house key public and private biomedical research institutes and organisations. It is also the first major development in one-north.
As a premier biomedical manufacturing centre in Asia, Tuas Biomedical Park (I and II) provides excellent infrastructure and opportunities for businesses to flourish. JTC's biomedical parks have already attracted world-renowned players in the biomedical field such as MSD, Pfizer, Wyeth, Ciba Vision, GSK Biologicals, Novartis, Lonza Biologics and Abbott Nutritionals.

New Developments @ Jurong Island
Towards a Smoother Traffic Flow at Jurong Island Checkpoint In anticipation of the increase in traffic into Jurong Island due mainly to the various expansion and construction projects, JTC had embarked on various traffic measures leading through the Jurong Island Checkpoint. These measures aim to provide smoother traffic without compromising on security of Jurong Island and safety to the motorists. Some of the measures include : Introduction of Reversible Flow for inbound traffic at Jurong Pier Flyover Conversion of existing Checkpoint Vehicular Outbound Lanes to cater to Reversible Flow Conversion of part of Jurong Island Highway (immediately after the Checkpoint) to cater to Reversible Flow Conversion of the Departure Hall area into both Arrival and Departure Construction of additional bus alighting and boarding bays Addition of 11 security clearance turnstiles at Arrival Hall Relocation of the Long Term Pass Office to 20 Jurong Pier Road
JTC will be implementing the reversible flow traffic scheme with effect from 28 Oct 2008, with operational hours between 6:30am and 8:30am. If you require any clarifications or assistance, please feel free to contact the Emergency Command Centre at 62681020. Thank you and we look forward to your continued support.
Wafer Fabrication and Advanced Display Park Singapores semiconductor industry began in the 1960s, with the introduction of early assembly and testing activities. Based on a report by the Strategic Marketing Associates in 2006, Singapore is ranked No. 2 by city after Hsinchu in Taiwan and No. 6 by country after Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, US and China in terms of wafer fab production capacity. The wafer companies in Singapore accounts for about 10% of the worlds foundry wafer output and holds 5% of worldwide wafer fabrication capacity. In 2007, the semiconductor cluster generated S$36.2billion (US$24 billion) semiconductor manufacturing output with a value-add of S$9.7billion (US$6.4 billion) and employs around 40,000 people. The industry is currently supported by a vibrant ecosystem with 40 integrated circuit design companies, 20 chip assembly and test plants, 8 Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMs) /Compound /Epitaxy Wafer Fabs, 14 silicon wafer fabrication facilities as well as research Institutes and supporting industries.
