Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled New "temples" of India : Singapore and India collaboration in information technology parks contains a list of illustrations, acknowledgements and foreword. The Information Technology (IT) sector is part of the knowledge-based economy (KBE) that Singapore is emphasising to sustain economic growth into the 21st century, but plans to develop a KBE did not materialise overnight. It has been argued by scholars like Edgar Schein that Singapore's emphasis on KBE goes back to its founding as a nation state (Schein, 1996). Prior to Britain pulling out its troops from Singapore in the 1960s, the-then Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew had a fortuitous meeting with EJ Mayer, the director of the industrial planning department in Israel's ministry of commerce and industry.

Keywords: India collaboration; information technology parks; knowledge-based economy (KBE); Singapore
