Baey Yam Keng (Chinese: 马炎庆; pinyin: Mǎ Yánqìng; born 31 August 1970) is a Singaporean politician and member of the People's Action Party. He has been a Member of Parliament since 2006, first representing Tanjong Pagar and now Tampines. As an MP representing Tampines GRC, he is specifically responsible for Tampines North.

Career[edit]

Before entering politics, Baey held executive positions in the Economic Development Board amongst others. He was a managing director at Hill & Knowlton until resigning in 2012 to devote his time to his constituency.[1]

In June 2014, PAP MP Baey Yam Keng called for legal action against those who had vandalised its Wikipedia page, which had been the subject of an edit war between vandals and editors of Wikipedia on 12 and 13 June,[2] though he later claimed that "(advocating for legal action was) never on top of my mind, nor is it PAP's (People's Action Party) priority".[3]

Personal life[edit]

Baey and his wife have three children. He was educated at Catholic High School and Hwa Chong Junior College and graduated from the Imperial College London (BSc) and University College London (MSc) on EDB scholarships.[4]
