Singapore can, Taiwan cannot

It's about time that we start to have some English questions here.

Why Singapore can but Taiwan can not?

Singapore use English as thier Native Langaue from long time ago.

新加坡 為何有權、有廉、又有能?

作者:吳韻儀 2006.06.21/ 第349期

它只有台北縣三分之一大小,但卻是全球第四大外匯交易中心,平均國民所得是台灣的1.75倍。當美、英、日、韓、台等各國政府正面臨領導危機,新加坡的執政黨不但執政長達四十七年,更以廉能著稱,得到人民一次又一次的信任。公務員可以驕傲地說,「在新加坡,我不用走歪路,也可以成功。」新加坡政府如何做到有權、有廉、又有能?

You are welcome to answer this in Chinese.

Update:

    Yea it's true... they speak english but it's not proper...

    I think the main point of success to Singapore is their goverment...

    Without goverment, they're nothing...

    They speak English is because they were once a settlement of UK...

    Like Hong Kong... Let's take a look at our goverment in Taiwan...

    Did they do anything that benefits the citizen of Taiwan?

    No... The education sucks ... The security sucks...

    Everything is different from Singapore itself...

    But i also think that singaporeans are too proud of themselves...

    Just bcoz they're singaporean n speak english...

    They look down on foreigners especially the one from China...

    it sounds like to you Taiwan is inferior to Singapore

    you should pursue for the improvement of Taiwan out the love for this country

    rather than just looking for the shortcomings...duh
