Singapore Defence and Security Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, defence and security associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Singapore's defence and security industry.

An agreement between Singapore and Malaysia in 2010 has laid the foundations for further strategic alliances within the region. Malaysian authorities will hand over Tanjong Pagar railway station in Singapore and relocate their train operations to Woodlands, closer to the border. This land swap agreement is undoubtedly a win-win deal for both parties. It will allow Singapore to reclaim full sovereignty over large tracts of land, while Malaysia stands to gain from increased investment and economic cooperation.

Piracy and terrorism still remain the key security threat for Singapore. The Malacca Strait connecting to Indonesia are classified as one of the world’s main maritime ‘chokepoints’. 2011 is expected to see a further increase in attacks and robberies after a record number in 2010. Government policy will focus on increasing patrols to ward off potential threats.
