The Government has not proposed, planned nor targeted for Singapore to increase its population to 10 million. The Government has explained its population policies in an earlier article here.

We monitor our population trends closely, and regularly review our population policies along with infrastructure and social development needs. An update on our population outlook was provided in Parliament in March 2018. At that update, the Government said that given recent trends, Singapore’s total population is likely to be significantly below 6.9 million by 2030. This outlook remains valid today.
