Ng Chee Meng on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

The NTUC Job Security Council has matched more than 10,000 workers with new jobs, said labour chief Ng Chee Meng in Parliament on Thursday (Jun 4). During the debate on the Fortitude Budget, Mr Ng, who is also Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, said Singapore still has a lot to do to overcome significant economic challenges, but it has a strategy in place, backed by a series of budgets making the necessary resources available. He said the aims are to enable the economy to reopen and stay open, preserve and create jobs and match workers to them, and push for industry transformation.
