The Asian Urban Well-being Indicators: Singapore Report was developed by the Civic Exchange (Hong Kong) with the assistance of Ms Penny Low and SIP. The findings were presented at the NTU Symposium on Social Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Public Policy: Asia and Europe in Comparative Perspective, held at the Fullerton Hotel.
This launch focuses specifically on Singapore as a city, and reveals in-depth perceptions about quality of life in areas such as medical care, education, housing, transport, government and crime. The study aims to identify issues and policy gaps that will engage the government and other stakeholders to shape public policy.
The Singapore report is part of a larger Asian Urban Wellbeing project, whose first comparative report was launched in June. A Hong Kong report was published in October, followed by a Singapore report in December. A final report, on Shanghai, will be released afterwards, giving a broader look at three major Asian cities.
