Hello,

When referring to countries, do we use the pronoun who or which?

Singapore who seeks to be New Asia’s Digital Media capital?

Or:

Singapore which seeks to be New Asia’s Digital Media capital?

Thank you,

Basheer

Which is correcr. I have added a comma but even that doesn't make the "sentence" complete as it lacks a main clause.

Thank you for your response. I just copied part of a sentence.
While doing a search, I found who used a lot to refer to countries, but it did not sound right to me. I did not write the original text. Had I been the writer, I would have used which.

Thank you.
