Vikram Nair on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

Fortitude means courage in the face of adversity and that is exactly what Singapore needs to get back on its feet, said MP Vikram Nair. Speaking during the debate on the Fortitude Budget in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5), he said the Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been “nimble”. Its priorities are to save lives with a rigorous system of public messaging, contact tracing and quarantine, as well as expanded medical resources. “Now, the time has come to slowly get back on our feet and move, and this Budget again provides much-needed lubrication to help this process,” he said.
