IPAA WA 2017 Espresso Series: International Perspectives Singapore

Test your assumptions as to what a public service looks like and how it should operate. For this session, we have invited a presenter with expertise in the political environment of Singapore to provide an overview of the context in which the public service operates. In a city-state in which business, politics, and public administration are so closely linked, Professor Rodan’s is a critical perspective for anybody seeking to understand this powerful regional economy.

Where you may often look to similar jurisdictions such as the UK, NZ and Canada for inspiration, there is much to be learnt from the dissimilar services operating elsewhere.
