Formed on 1 February 1960, Housing Development Board (HDB)) is one of the most important statutory board in Singapore. HDB is closely associated with Singaporean as the former is responsible for providing homes to more than 80 per cent of Singaporeans. As HDB is under the Ministry of National Development which formulates and implements policies on land-use planning and development of infrastructure, HDB plays a crucial role to realize these policies in the public housing system.
Besides public housing, HDB also manages public car parks, and is the landlord for commercial and industrial space around Singapore
