The 'Inclusive and Cohesive Society' pillar highlights the need to encourage and develop a vibrant multicultural society.

The 'Preferred Place to Live, Work and Visit' sees it becoming an "unrivalled" worldwide destination for expats and tourists.

And the 'Smart and Sustainable City' pillar focuses on the environmental aspect of the city's development, while the 'Pivotal Hub in the Global Economy' forecasts a city with healthy economic growth -- and a place that is a leading worldwide business hub.

The future is full of opportunities, yet challenges exist too. But facing the future with positive energy will always ensure the best
