Singapore, 9 July 2015 - The revamped issue of SINGAPORE Magazine, published by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd ("SPH Magazines") on behalf of the Singapore International Foundation (SIF), has just been released. SINGAPORE Magazine, a quarterly publication targeted at the international community living in Singapore and abroad, now sports a refreshing new design together with insightful, in-depth coverage sharing the heart and soul of Singapore, through individuals and groups that have forged cross-cultural friendships and effected positive change - whether in arts & culture, education, business & livelihood, healthcare or the environment. SINGAPORE 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 for a better world. Some highlights of the current issue include an interview with Dr Liu Thai Ker, Singapore’s master urban planner, who has been sharing his expertise in building liveable cities with the world, as well as a feature on home-grown social enterprise Saught, which produces jewellery crafted from repurposed artillery shells. It also spotlights 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, SIF, said: “This revamp retains what SINGAPORE Magazine seeks to do – to tell stories of friendships that have enriched lives and effected positive change. We will continue to feature inspirational Singaporeans and their organisations connecting across cultures – making a difference to people around the world and finding themselves enriched through their experiences.” Mr Dennis Pua, Managing Director, SPH Magazines, said: “SINGAPORE Magazine allows us to showcase our versatility and strength as a custom publisher, as it complements our portfolio of titles that already cover a gamut of subjects and interests, from food to design to travel among others. We will continue to work closely with SIF to convey their key messages of cross-cultural friendship and collaboration through quality editorial content and design.” 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, and also sent to diplomatic missions here and worldwide. It is also distributed together with The Finder, the go-to guide for expats in Singapore, and The Peak, the luxury lifestyle read for corporate elites and diplomats here.
