The Singapore Pavilion will enhance Singapore's presence on the Internet. Think of it as a pavilion amongst many other pavilions from other countries in the world's fair. A pavilion for showcasing everything Singaporean. It will be good opportunity for us to introduce to the world, our lifestyle, culture, history and heritage, using state of the art technology on the Internet like live audio and video, Java applets or VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language).

A steering committee was formed last year, and will coordinate a series of activities that will take place for the whole of 1996. A list of possible activities has been drafted (see Calendar of Tentative Anchor Events) and the committee is liaising with various different parties to make these activities a reality. Anybody can be part of the Internet 1996 World Exposition, and the committee welcomes ideas and contributions to make the Singapore Pavilion even more exciting!
