Desmond Choo on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

"Where CEOs have failed, COVID-19 has succeeded,” said MP Desmond Choo on the progress that flexible work arrangements have made during the pandemic. Speaking in Parliament on Thursday (Jun 4) during the debate on the Fortitude Budget, he said this is the “golden age of family togetherness” as the bedrock of family has been strengthened without loss in productivity. He urged the Government to keep up the momentum and institutionalise the right to flexible work arrangements for families. "We need a caregiving infrastructure as much as building tunnels and data networks," he said.
