Singaporean students are quite lucky that 2 of Asia’s top universities NUS, NTU are located here. I think that there should be room for even more universities to be built here, to cater to those students whose grades are decent but not good enough to enter NUS, NTU, SMU.

Ranking wise, I think maintaining current ranking should be good enough. In practice, there should not be any big difference in say a Top 5 or Top 20 university in the world. (Currently NUS is around 12th in the world, compared to say Yale which is 25th in the world, for Natural Sciences.) There should not be a need for a deliberate push to be top in the world, at expense of other factors.
