In 2025, we envision a Singapore transformed for the better by infocomm media. It will be a nation where people live meaningful and fulfilled lives enabled by technology, and where there are exciting opportunities for all. It will be a place where infocomm media enables a better quality of life for our people through world-class connectivity, compelling local content, and technologies to make everyday lives smoother and more convenient. It will be a living lab to entrepreneurs, growth companies and multinationals in the infocomm media space where they continually experiment and innovate to contribute to sustainable and quality economic growth.

To realise these desired outcomes, Infocomm Media 2025 sets out to create a globally competitive infocomm media ecosystem that enables and complements Singapore’s Smart Nation vision. This ecosystem supports our people and enterprises in tapping on infocomm media to effect economic and social transformation, and to create enriching and compelling content to help bind our communities and foster a common identity.

In June 2013, the Minister for Communications and Information, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim convened a private-sector led Steering Committee chaired by Mr Koh Boon Hwee to develop Infocomm Media 2025.

The Committee built on the foundation put in place under the direction and plans of the Intelligent Nation 2015 Masterplan (iN2015) and the Singapore Media Fusion Plan (SMFP), and undertook an in-depth study on ways to harness infocomm media to power innovations and address our national challenges in the next decade.

Over the period of 31 Mar 2014 to 30 Sep 2014, the Committee held public and industry consultations and released a consultation document and a consultation booklet. The documents featured preliminary ideas that were being considered for inclusion into the Plan. A consultation closing summary booklet was also released in Dec 2014 to summarise the feedback received. The Committee considered the feedback in the refinement of the preliminary ideas and subsequent development of the Plan.

At the 2014 National Day Rally, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced Singapore’s goal to become the world’s first Smart Nation. This lends national impetus to leapfrog ahead to build our Smart Nation. The Committee saw the role of Infocomm Media 2025 as enabling and complementing the Singapore Smart Nation vision.

On 11 August 2015, the Committee submitted the final report to Minister Yaacob Ibrahim. The Minister accepted the report and the broad directions set within, on behalf of the Ministry. The Ministry announced that it would study the details of the recommendations and work closely with the industry, sector champions and stakeholders to refine and implement them at the appropriate juncture.
