SINGAPORE: Ong Choon Fah, formerly the CEO and Head, Research & Consulting at Edmund Tie & Company, has been appointed Chair of Singapore for the Urban Land Institute (ULI), an interdisciplinary research and education institute dedicated to leadership in real estate and land use. Ong succeeds Khoo Teng Chye, Executive Director for the Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC), Ministry of National Development (MND), who held the position of ULI Singapore Chairman for two years. As the new Chair for Singapore, Ong plans to focus her efforts on expanding ULI’s Advisory Services Programme by introducing Technical Assistance Panel (TAPs) to Singapore, forming a group of ULI members that will convene regularly and exchange information and share best practice around a particular issue related to the responsible use of land, and building out ULI’s NEXT Member Network in Singapore.
