National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said the vision of making Singapore a clean, green and liveable city has remained unchanged since the first concept plan for the city state, and will continue to be upheld in the next master plan for the country.

He made the comments in his blog post on Monday about a recent surprise visit from Mr Henry Wardlaw, who headed the United Nations (UN) consultancy team that drew up the first Singapore Concept Plan in 1971.

“I have seen an amazing and well organised transformation of the city since our work here was finished in 1971,” Mr Wardlaw was quoted as saying in the blog.
