Singapore's Existence

Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, 2nd Minister of MICA, visited Google recently to learn and share insights on the development of IT and engineering in Singapore, US and globally. We had a fairly long discussion, about 2 hours, talking on issues ranging from how Google works to the rationale behind scholarships with bonds.

As the new guard of the Singapore government, I talked away with the impression that the minister had thought long about Singapore and its role in the global economy - a very poignant quote from him (paraphrased) "what why and how can Singapore, a place which logically does not deserve to exist, continue to thrive?"

the commencing "what" of the quote does not make any English (language) sense (though I don't know if it does in "your" reality - kidding).

I feel a "why" is probably how he (the minister) did start it.
