SINGAPORE: Former HDB chief Dr Liu Thai Ker said planners should be more creative in planning new towns.
Dr Liu was speaking in Bilbao, Spain, at the World Cities Summit.
Three new HDB towns will be built in the next few years in Bidadari, Tengah and Tampines North.
Dr Liu added that the guiding principle for these new towns, however, should remain the same as existing towns.
He said: "What we need to do is to use the principle, maybe with some minor updating, but we have to apply creativity, to create more and more exciting new towns. But the sound principle should not be neglected." - CNA/xq
