One of the many things that the Southeast Asian Republic of Singapore is known for is how it has successfully used multiracialism in shaping national policies to ensure continuous development. There are several people of Singaporean citizenship living as expatriates in the diaspora as well.
The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs report in 2019 shows that there are 340,751 Singaporeans living in the diaspora with majority of them located in Australia, Malaysia, United Kingdom and the United States.
