There is a movement amongst some parts of Chinese intelligensia (e.g Pan Wei) to adopt Singapore as a model - particularly because of the ethnically Chinese character of the state. There's a huge number of issues adopting it to China though, including size and the lack of an authority figure like Singapore's Lee. Not the least of though is the recent election results in Singapore. The opposition made modest gains, but it's widely interpreted as Singapore moving towards a real democracy and away from a pseudo democracy. At greater length here if you're interested http://clubtroppo.com.au/2011/07/16/a-new-big-idea-for-china/ . It will be fascinating to watch, even if it takes decades to tell the story.
