Don Wee on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment No. 2) Bill

(Updated: )

Singapore should reduce its reliance on foreign manpower and supplies to avoid a repeat of the construction delays that it experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. MP Don Wee, who made this call in Parliament on Monday (Apr 5), stressed the need to step up efforts to improve productivity, upskill the local workforce and leverage technology to increase capabilities. He also sought clarifications on the Bill. One relates to support for HDB flat buyers whose new apartments are not ready due to construction delays and have to rent units during the interim.
