SINGAPORE: Singapore has once again secured the top position in the annual Chandler Good Government Index, for the second consecutive year.

The index, compiled by the Chandler Institute of Governance, a respected international non-profit organization, evaluated the capabilities and efficiency of governments across 113 nations.

The assessment underscored the pivotal role of good governance in catalyzing a nation’s success trajectory. A proficient government, the report indicates, transcends mere crisis management, instead, spearheading strategic initiatives to chart a trajectory towards a prosperous future while fostering inclusivity and progress.

Singapore emerged triumphant across multiple key indicators. Notably, the city-state clinched the top position in critical areas such as government leadership and foresight, national institutional capabilities, and market attractiveness.

Additionally, Singapore showcased commendable performance in financial governance, securing a noteworthy second place.

However, while Singapore performed well in fostering an environment conducive to economic prosperity, the assessment unveiled a slight dip in its ranking concerning improving people’s livelihood indicators. Despite slipping to fourth place from its previous second-place standing, Singapore remains steadfast in its dedication to enhancing the quality of life for its citizens.
