Building a sense of belonging

The relationship between Singapore and the people who call it home is more than a fact of geography; the connection goes beyond a birthplace, mailing address or calling code.

From a colony of immigrants to a nation, Singapore and its people have been bound by shared allegiance to the values of equality and progress for all. This spirit has motivated people to come together to build society in six key areas – housing, education, transport, defence, healthcare and the environment.

Today, Singapore is one of the world’s top places to live in; its home ownership rates are among the world’s highest and its education system ranks among the best. It is such achievements, as well as the everyday idiosyncrasies of life, that tie the heartstrings of people to Singapore and inspire them to build a smart, sustainable home for the future.
