Abstract

Among the Overseas Chinese, research has focused on a small group of rich merchants who had invested time and money on rubber, pineapple and other products in Malaya. Few studies have been conducted on other, less wealthy, Overseas Chinese merchants in colonial Singapore. These merchants imported goods from either China or Southeast Asia for re-export or sale to local clientele.
