Our political office holders are engaging and getting feedback from Singaporeans through various engagement opportunities.

One of them is the Ministerial Community Walkabouts (MCWs) where members of the 4G leadership visit across Singapore. The MCW was launched in July 2018 and by the end of this year, the 4G team would have completed 58 such walkabouts.

PAP’s 1st Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Prime Minister Mr Heng said both PAP leaders and residents not only get to know each other better, but also for the 4G leaders to understand their concerns. These visits, which are done almost every week, will continue in the year ahead.

In his latest visit on Nov 24, 2019, Mr Heng visited the Geylang Serai wet market and food centre. The visit was hosted by Speaker of Parliament Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, who leads Marine Parade GRC. Mr Heng was accompanied by Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Home Affairs Josephine Teo; and Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Social and Family Development and Ministry of Education, Associate Professor Dr Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim.
