Liang Eng Hwa on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

MP Liang Eng Hwa welcomed the S$2 billion SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package that is part of the Fortitude Budget, saying it will help mid-career workers and first-time jobseekers who are of particular concern. Speaking in Parliament on Thursday (Jun 4) during the debate on the fourth round of measures to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, Mr Liang noted the impetus that the circuit breaker has given to digitalisation efforts and urged a further push to get groups like seniors and hawkers on board. He also asked how contingency funds set aside by the Government, totalling S$16 billion, might be used.
