The Republic of Singapore is a sovereign city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. It was founded by Stamford Raffles in 1819 as a trading post of the British East India Company. After the company’s collapse in 1858, Singapore was ceded to the British Raj as a crown colony. Singapore gained independence from the UK in 1963. After rapid development, Singapore today is major financial, education, and manufacturing hub.
