"Education and healthcare ... are too important to our future to be compromised," MP Gan Thiam Poh pointed out in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 25) in his disagreement with suggestions to cut spending in such areas and disburse the savings. He stressed the importance of attracting quality investments that can create quality jobs for the people and a harder push towards an innovation-driven economy. He also called for more resources to be allocated to low-income Singaporeans.
