Baey Yam Keng (simplified Chinese: 马炎庆; traditional Chinese: 馬炎慶; pinyin: Mǎ Yán Qìng; born 31 August 1970) is a Singaporean politician and member of the People's Action Party (PAP). He has been a Member of Parliament since 2006, first representing Tanjong Pagar Group Representation Constituency (GRC) and now Tampines GRC. As an MP representing Tampines GRC, he is specifically responsible for Tampines North.
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.
In June 2014, Baey called for legal action against those who had vandalised the article about the PAP on Wikipedia, which had been the subject of an edit war between vandals and editors overseas on 12 and 13 June, though he later claimed that "the legal action was due to someone who tarnished the reputation of the People's Action Party".
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.
