Engaging the community is key to our mission. This way, we can better develop and regulate the fast-converging infocomm and media sectors to benefit both consumers and businesses.
The effort is multi-faceted. We help fund public service broadcasts, promote media literacy and encourage the adoption of infocomm technology (ICT) that affects everyday life.
Central to our work is bridging the digital divide, because technology has to be inclusive and accessible to all. Our goal is a society where ICT is used as a powerful leveller to empower the elderly, needy and people with disabilities. Our ambition is to ensure that no one is left behind in an increasingly digitalised world. Access to digital skills and confidence in using technology is thus a priority for the Government.
Our decisions impact the community in many ways. This is a time when media consumers are also creators, when people’s digital lives are increasingly important. That is why we seek to educate and inform the public about media choices.
At the same time, we work closely with the industry to classify content and formulate policy. This helps deliver a wide variety of media for consumption, while protecting the young from objectionable content.
IMDA aims to provide funding for public service broadcasts, educate consumers on media literacy and infocomm technologies that affect their everyday lives.
As a promoter of the infocomm and media sectors, IMDA provides a wide range of programmes and grants to empower enterprises, individuals, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and startups alike.

Talent and Manpower
Key to sustainable growth is the development of talented individuals in the country. IMDA seeks to create an ecosystem where individuals in Singapore seeking a career in the industry can get the exposure, knowledge and experience they require, through partnerships with the industry.
Digital Technologies can enable us to strengthen the community and society and help us to connect and look out for one another. Our Digital Readiness efforts aim to equip our citizens to use technology actively, responsibly and confidently.
Personal Data Protection
Data is the lifeblood of new digital services in a Smart Nation. As citizens’ lives become more connected each day, the need to protect one’s personal data becomes an even more urgent task.
Infocomm Regulation and Guides
IMDA regularly review content regulation and guidelines to ensure they remain in step with social norms and values.
IMDA complied a series of connectivity guides to help consumers understand their issues relating to their use of mobile and broadband services.
