Committee of Supply 2021 debate, Day 7: Mark Chay on upgrading JSS tier for sports sector, harnessing e-sports potential

(Updated: )

COVID-19 has severely hit the sports and fitness as well as the wellness industries, said NMP Mark Chay in Parliament on Monday (Mar 8). He asked the Government to consider upgrading the sports and fitness industry from Tier 3 to Tier 2 under the Jobs Support Scheme. On the e-sports front, he said that top global teams have found Singapore very conducive for their professional team training, given its strong local infrastructure and fast and stable Internet. He proposed that Singapore do more to take on a leading role in shaping the industry.
