For the past three decades, Singapore has based her environmental management policies on the principle of balancing development and environment. It treats economic competitiveness and environmental sustainability as two sides of the same coin. They are complementary aspects of the common goal of a healthy economy with a clean living environment. Development need not be achieved at the expense of the environment.
The success of the environmental protection measures is

The talk will discuss the environmental management policies adopted and illustrate the effectiveness of preventive control in managing the environmental impact of rapid industrialisation and urbanisation.
