Region profile: Singapore


From 2009 to2013, the overall IPRI score for Singapore decreased by 0.3%.  However, Singapore’s IPRI has remained stable at 8.1 since 2011. 

In 2013, all three of the component scores have remained at their 2012 levels.  While there were minor deviations in Control of Corruption and Political Stability, they were able to balance out each other and not affect the Legal and Political Environment score.  The other two components varied even less, and consequently, Intellectual Property Rights and Intellectual Property Rights remained constant.
