July 2017. International Business Times.

“Singapore-listed companies are getting more women on to company boards, with research showing women participation exceeding 10 percent for the first time. The top 100 largest primary-listed companies achieved 12.2 percent women’s participation on boards from 10.9 percent six months ago, the Diversity Action Committee (DAC) said in a report dated July 13. DAC is a 19-member Committee comprising corporate leaders and professionals formed to address the under representation of women on boards of companies in Singapore. The aim is to have a 20 percent share for women by 2020, then 25 percent by 2025, and finally, 30 percent by 2030.”
