The MAS Gallery – a close-up look at MAS’ role in Singapore’s economy and financial sector

Singapore, 16 February 2016… Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, today launched the MAS Gallery. The Gallery aims to educate visitors in an engaging way the many roles MAS plays in the Singapore economy and financial sector. Located at MAS Building, the 480-sqm Gallery comprises two sections - Insights@MAS and Reflections@MAS.

Insights@MAS offers visitors an overview of the functions of MAS. It showcases how MAS conducts monetary policy, manages the official foreign reserves, issues currency notes and coins, supervises the financial sector, and promotes Singapore as a financial centre. Insights@MAS also highlights MAS’ efforts in raising financial literacy among Singaporeans, and offers a glimpse into how technology and innovation might transform how financial services are delivered in the future. Through interactive games and animations, visitors can play policymakers - adjusting monetary policy settings under different scenarios, or conducting stress tests on the financial system. Or they could try their hand at making financial choices or saving for retirement.

Reflections@MAS focuses on MAS as an organisation. Through a compilation of videos, photographs, and stylised displays, Reflections@MAS highlights MAS’ mission and values, its leaders and people. It also serves as a casual setting for reflection and relaxation.

Admission to the MAS Gallery is free and self-guided. The Gallery is open on weekdays from 9.30am to 5.30pm, and on Saturdays from 9.30am to 1.30pm (only for group visits). For more information on the MAS Gallery, please visit: .
