SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has said he hopes Singapore will benefit from the making of new Star Wars films.
In a Facebook post, Mr Lee said the country’s institutes are training students in interactive digital media.
Lucasfilm, the Star Wars franchise’s creator, has a Singapore complex at Fusionopolis in the one—north business park.
