In 1998, Singapore's government announced its vision to transform the city state into a knowledge-based economy (KBE) through a gradual shift from value adding to value creation. As both users and producers of knowledge, knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) are commonly seen as a cornerstone of the KBE. After assessing the development, size and structure of Singapore's KIBS sector, the A. uses data from innovation surveys of manufacturing and KIBS firms to assess the latter's dual role as innovators and bridges for innovation. The results allow to point out policy recommendations and sketch possible avenues for further research. - (IfL)
