Koh welcomed his appointment, acknowledging the critical role of the commission in safeguarding competition and protecting consumer interests.

“[W]e will support Singapore’s economic growth and work to ensure a transparent, fair and safe market environment for all. Tackling anti-competitive conduct and unfair practices remains our primary objective and we will take on relevant and impactful cases to maintain our enforcement presence,” he said. 

“In the medium term, CCCS will focus on digital markets, price transparency and supporting Singapore’s green transition. I look forward to working closely with our stakeholders to deliver positive, prompt and impactful outcomes that matter to our people, businesses, and economy,” he added.

Koh is returning to the CCCS where he previously worked as Director (Legal & Enforcement) at the then-Competition Commission of Singapore.

Koh has been in public service for more than 20 years. He previously served as the founding chief legal officer at the Ministry of Finance. 

He also held the roles of chief legal officer at the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore, deputy public prosecutor, magistrate and judicial officer, and justices’ law clerk to the chief justice and judges of the Supreme Court.
