Abstract


It is a huge challenge in Singaporean modernization that its core values are based on countries’ acceptance extracted from various ethic groups and multiple beliefs. Under the guidance of national equality and respect for diversity, Singapore government actively promote the formation of core values based on countries’ acceptance by coexistence of multicultural values, integration of values and cultural fusion. Singaporean core values put emphases on patriotism featured with loyalty and dedication, harmonious and forgiving national policies, and moral codes of kindheartedness and comity. The core values derived from the integration of cultures are the spiritual sources for Singaporean ethnic harmony and cultural prosperity, making the cultural wasteland in the old days into today’s cultural oasis.
