Multi-cultural ties in Singapore grown stronger

SINGAPORE: A Nanyang Technological University (NTU) study found multi-cultural ties in Singapore have grown stronger.

The study was done by researchers at the varsity's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.

The report, titled "The Ties that Bind and Blind: A Report on Inter-racial and Inter-religious Relations in Singapore", was released on Friday morning.

It found the strength of multi-cultural ties rose to 67.1 per cent last year, compared to 47.5 per cent in 2007.

This is based on an inclusiveness index, measuring the number of people who answered "yes" to all questions on their receptiveness to interact with people of other races and religions.

Some 2,100 people were polled last year, while about 1,700 people were polled in 2007.

All respondents were Singapore citizens and data was collected by face-to-face interviewers.
