Abstract: Privatisation has been the buzzword in many countries, and in Singapore it is no exception. This study explores the public's perception of the relevance, as well as the possible privatization of the Housing Development Board. These issues are close to the hearts of the public as 85% of the population lives in HDB flats. Thus privatization has social, economic and political implications on the country. The rationale for public enterprises in the beginning is first explored. This is followed by an evaluation of the costs and benefits of privatization. The public's perceptions are then derived through the analysis of a survey. The survey results showed that 93.8% of the respondents felt that the HDB was still relevant in today's context. 31.8% of the respondents were for the privatization of the HDB. However, it was also found that there was a general lack of awareness and understanding of the issue of the privatization of the HDB. An analysis of the reasons cited by the respondents regarding the relevance and privatization issues was also carried out. These results would aid the HDB in addressing public concerns, so as improve its operations and to facilitate the ease with which privatization may be realized in the future.
