Singapore's property developers should take the lead in boosting the productivity of the construction sector, Senior Minister of State for National Development Lee Yi Shyan said on Thursday.

"To transform the built environment sector, our developers must first take the lead to adopt more buildable designs and productive construction technologies for your projects," he said.

"Once the developers set the direction, the other stakeholders will follow."

Mr Lee, who is also Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry, said that construction demand is expected to remain stable and sustained over the next 10 years.
