Product Description

Singapore was ranked first for the competence of its public officials from 1999 to 2002 by the Global Competitiveness Report. While research has been done on various aspects of public administration in Singapore, there is to date no comprehensive study of the Singapore Civil Service and the statutory boards and their contribution to the attainment of national development goals. The aim of this book is to rectify this gap in the literature by providing a detailed study of public administration. The book’s main conclusion is that the nature and success of public administration in Singapore results from the combined influence of Singapore’s context and the various policies introduced by the People’s Action Party (PAP) government since it assumed office in June 1959, over 50 years ago.
