The Government identified five national strategic projects: National Digital Identity (NID) framework, e-Payments, Smart Nation Sensor Platform, Smart Urban Mobility and Moments of Life. The Committee for Future Economy released its report in February.

Singapore embarked on it Smart Nation journey in 2014, with PM Lee Hsien Loong outlining the vision of a “A nation where people live meaningful and fulfilled lives, enabled seamlessly by technology, offering exciting opportunities for all.”
