TST reported in February that Singapore’s current population density is 11,000 people per sq km. This will rise to 13,000 in 2030. It went on to note that DPM Teo said that even at 13,000, Singapore’s population density is still way below that of other cities like HK, which is 22,000 per sq km.
This is a flawed comparison. So what if HK’s figure is much higher than ours? It’s ok if people in HK think that’s fine. The main issue should be whether Singaporeans can accept that figure, and can our infrastructure support it?
They should stop making this type of apple and orange kind of comparisons. It is not the first time.
