9 Aug 2016, The Straits Times

Ms Chew Gek Khim, former chairman of the National Environment Agency (NEA) from 2008 to 2015 was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal at the National Day Awards. She was instrumental in the upgrading of existing hawker centres and the construction of new ones. “It is gratifying to see the creation of more hawker centres, which indirectly help cap rising food prices. I am also happy to see how NEA has evolved, and it now attracts qualified and talented young people who aspire to make Singapore’s living environment even better.” said Ms Chew.
