A few years ago, when Singapore became independent from Malaysia, it had to decide what kind of future it wanted as a nation. It had the option of competing with its neighbours as a country which was more orientated to the services sector, but it had to cope with an underdeveloped society with a very low level of education. So, the “Singapore Method” was created under the slogan “schools that think, a nation that learns”. A state educational model based on the ability to solve problems that had to provide solutions for a manufacturing country. In other words, they sought to move ahead by thinking. A system that Spain has adopted in some schools with great results. And that companies too should be orientated towards. They must also be aware of the export opportunities offered by Singapore. Spanish producers are working on it. They are analysing the situation, studying the possibilities of selling there and how to do so. Because Singapore is more than just a modern country that is constantly growing. It is also another gateway to the Asian market.
