What are Industry Transformation Maps (ITM)?

Industry transformation maps are frameworks designed by the Future Economy Council (FEC) to encourage collaboration among stakeholders from different industries and to enable companies to understand the developing business environment. ITMs bring together government, trade associations and chambers, private companies, economic agencies, and other stakeholders from 23 industries to address sector issues.

Four categories describe the framework's
transformation strategies are:

This vision involves providing grants for internships to strengthen the country’s pool of leaders and build talents for different industries. It also encourages employer-led capacity building and other training sessions to equip you with skills and knowledge on emerging business trends.
The FEC seeks to establish and encourage partnerships within industries and across various sectors. Through collaboration, stakeholders can appreciate how different sectors are interdependent and identify ways to address issues within each industry jointly.
The focus is on connecting businesses with telecommunication providers, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and banks to promote technology adoption. It also encompasses the Scale-up SG programme, where public and private sector partners select a few small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and nurture them to become future industry leaders.
This strategy seeks to make the compliance landscape and regulatory requirements more business-friendly. FEC works with industry stakeholders and the government to review existing business laws to make them more favourable for SMEs to thrive.

Who oversees ITMs?

The FEC oversees the designing and implementation of the ITMs. It has seven clusters comprising political officeholders and stakeholders from the private sector to help it create and deploy the transformation frameworks. These clusters are interdependent but have areas of specialisation:

The Future Economy Council works with the government and stakeholders to implement the $4.5 billion ITMs programme. The primary aim is to create good jobs and ample business opportunities across all sectors. FEC has six sub-committees to help achieve this mandate:
