"The issues related to MND's work are multi-faceted and involve multiple stakeholders. This makes the work here both challenging and interesting. I am never bored because I am constantly learning something new. The opportunity to interact with different stakeholders, understand their perspectives and see the same issue with new eyes is an experience in itself. Most importantly, I am proud to be part of the team that is constantly working towards making Singapore the best home for all."

Deputy Director, Housing (Town Councils)
"My involvement in the MND team, which organised the World Cities Summit Mayors Forum, and my work on the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city Project have certainly expanded my knowledge horizon. I find myself more attuned to world affairs and have forged new friendships with my counterparts from different parts of the world. I hope that, through such platforms, more people will be inspired to identify solutions to development challenges and contribute as active global citizens by 'thinking globally and acting locally."
Deputy Director, Eco-City Project Office
"As a small country, we will always face the issue of land scarcity. The challenge of finding solutions to optimise our land use while balancing trade-offs to achieve national goals makes my work exciting. MND works closely with our statutory boards, as well as other agencies and research institutes to sustain Singapore's long-term growth and resilience. We strive to make Singapore a special place in the hearts of our people, where shared memories and shared lives make a house a home and a town a community."

Deputy Director, Research and Development
"I have had the opportunity to be involved in various aspects of policy work that have shaped the physical environment around me. These experiences have strengthened my conviction that I should continue to build my career in the Public Service, where I can play an active role in shaping Singapore's future. Aspiring officers must embrace the Public Service ethos of Integrity, Service and Excellence. They must also have initiative and drive and be a leader as well as a team player. Most importantly, they must have a strong desire to make Singapore a better home for all."
