Louis Ng on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment No. 3) Bill(Updated: )
Amid the manpower crunch caused by COVID-19, Singapore should consider expanding its list of source countries for workers in the construction industry, said MP Louis Ng. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (May 11), he said a more diverse supply pool could also make it easier to find higher-skilled workers and attain higher productivity. Mr Ng also asked about allowing the monetary sums of uncompleted construction contracts to be adjusted. He wanted to know if that would lead to the Government paying a lot more for projects that are still in the works.
