Transforming Our City, Our Home

Since independence in 1965, Singapore has gone from being a small impoverished island with no natural resources to a modern metropolis that Singaporeans are proud to call home.

The success of our urbanisation did not happen by chance, but was the result of foresight in careful planning and a concerted effort between various agencies within the MND family to realise this vision.

Join us in opening a window into our early struggles, and the planning principles that transformed the landscape of our nation.
