They help to broaden political agendas. They improve dialogue and strengthen communication. .......see more below.

This is a very good example for a very bad citizen engagement in Singapore. This is done in a very unique Singapore way. The government through PA and RC wants to a kind of feedback that fit their agenda. However, increasingly, citizens are not happy with arrangement.

THE NEW STRATEGIC POLICY UNIT is another proof of the government knows best. It once again neglects the importance of citizen engagement. A feedback loop like this is not perfect as defined in the course: Engaging Citizens: The Game Changer in Development?

The new unit is not a game change.   It only considers the PAP government side of the story, not the people's feedback.  

 
This office will support the Prime Minister and his Cabinet to establish priorities and strengthen strategic alignment across Government.
