Singapore a city full of 'paradoxes': Grace Fu
Singapore, a small country that thinks big, is a city of extraordinary paradoxes, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Grace Fu in Korea on Sunday.
Speaking at a National Day celebration at the World Expo, held this year in Yeosu, she said that this was why Singapore's pavilion is titled "Paradox-ity: City of Contrasts".
For example, Singapore operates one of the world's largest offshore landfills, the Semakau Landfill - which is also home to 700 types of plants and animals.
Ms Fu, who is also Second Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, as well as Foreign Affairs, also pointed out that Singapore is only 714 square kilometres of land, yet has more than two million trees across the island.
