SINGAPORE - SINGAPORE Magazine, published by SPH Magazines on behalf of the Singapore International Foundation (SIF), has just been given a new look.
The quarterly publication, targeted at the international community living in Singapore and abroad, now sports a new design together with in-depth coverage about Singapore in areas such as arts & culture, education, business & livelihood, healthcare and the environment, SPH Magazines said.
The magazine puts the spotlight on citizen ambassadors, social enterprises and other Singapore organisations and highlights their efforts as active global citizens seeking to build international understanding in diverse communities, it said.
Highlights of the current issue include an interview with Dr Liu Thai Ker, a Singapore urban planner, as well as a feature on home-grown social enterprise Saught, which produces jewellery crafted from repurposed artillery shells. It also highlights the efforts of non-profit organisation Goducate to promote better understanding between migrant workers and Singaporeans through an English learning programme.
Mr Peter Tan, Director of Communications & Corporate Development of SIF, said in a statement: "This revamp retains what SINGAPORE Magazine seeks to do - to tell stories of friendships that have enriched lives and effected positive change."
With a readership of 20,000, the magazine is distributed locally and overseas in countries such as India, Cambodia, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Australia and the United States. It is also distributed together with The Finder, a guide for expatriates in Singapore, and The Peak, a luxury lifestyle read for corporate elites and diplomats here, SPH Magazines said in the statement.
