Kudos to Professor Peng Hwa Ang for being awarded the Public Service Star at the National Day Awards 2022 for his role as Vice-President of the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE) Central Committee.
"Knowing that I am part of the Consumers Association of Singapore, working to improve the environment for all consumers in Singapore, has been very meaningful for me,” he said. "I know of many instances where consumers have been able to get redress because of the work at Case. It is rewarding enough. The award is an unexpected bonus." He has also applied his research in other areas. For example, he researched self-regulation in the media and this has been useful for him as chair of the Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore, when working on social media advertising guidelines.
