Future public sector leaders will need more than just policy-making skills: Chan Chun Sing

28 Feb 2019

Minister-in-charge of the Public Service Mr Chan Chun Sing said in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 28) that the Singapore Public Service will need leaders that have skills beyond just policy-making and he agreed with several MPs who spoke on the need to create a more diverse public service leadership. This issue was raised at the recent SMU Behavioural Sciences Institute Conference (Feb 22) where panellists had said that the Singapore Government pays too much attention to academic qualifications in the way it chooses its leaders and assesses the ability of civil servants.
