Transport ministry open to review of how COEs are categorised


Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo dropped a hint in Parliament on Tuesday that there might be a change in the way Certificates of Entitlement (COE) are categorised.

In response to a Jurong GRC MP Ang Wei Neng who suggested pegging COE premiums to the Open Market Value rather than the engine capacity of cars, she said the Government was open to reviewing the way COEs are categorised.

"I would urge the member to be patient," she added.

The Straits Times has previously reported that the Government will embark on a review of the COE system.
