Debate on President's Address: Leong Mun Wai on jobs for Singaporeans(Updated: )
NCMP Leong Mun Wai has called for immediate and decisive action to restore the balance of interests between Singaporeans and foreigners. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 1), he said new work pass approvals and renewals should be reduced, while the foreign talent model should be tweaked to improve job prospects for Singaporeans. He proposed the designation of a group of Offshore Companies with products and services which Singaporeans do not yet have the skills to produce. These companies can have a "freer hand" in attracting talents from all over the world, he said.
