A Home for Every Singaporean
We have increased the affordability of flats over the last five years. We have also increased housing supply dramatically so that you can get your flat sooner. Queues for flats have been reduced and we are also giving more options to singles and the elderly.
Singles can now purchase 2-room BTO flats. We have also introduced studio apartments to help seniors age-in-place. For those who wish to stay closer to their adult children, we have introduced 3Gen flats. We have also set aside new flats under the enhanced Married Child Priority Scheme (MCPS) so that families can move closer to each other.
Better Quality of Life
We want every Singaporean to achieve better work-life balance. We are encouraging businesses to implement Flexible Work Arrangements and have made arts, culture, sports and green spaces more accessible to you and your family.
Opportunities for All
We want to give every Singaporean, regardless of background, the opportunity to learn and upgrade themselves through life to realise their fullest potential.
Peace of Mind for Healthcare Costs
We want to take care of you and your family. The introduction of Medishield Life will allow every citizen greater protection against hospital bills for life. This includes those who were previously uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions. Premiums will also be kept affordable, with up to two-thirds of Singaporean households receiving permanent premium subsidies.
We’re also making it easier for you to get the treatment you need. We are building more healthcare facilities that are closer to you.
Helping lower and middle-income Singaporeans
We are keeping watch over the cost of living for lower and middle-income Singaporeans. We have extended many social assistance schemes to more Singaporean households. The Pioneer Generation Package also helps a special group of seniors with their healthcare expenses. GST Vouchers provides aid for utility bills and living expenses. Hawker centres and affordable hawker will be built and available to all Singaporeans.
Keeping Singapore Moving
We have been increasing bus capacity significantly with the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). We are also committed to upgrading and extending our MRT network to better serve our citizens.
