Singapore's budgets should reflect the importance of sports to its economy and society, said NMP Mark Chay. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Feb 24), he said it is time to focus on the sports industry and rehabilitation efforts. He urged the Government to do more to help private sports enterprises survive, recover and grow stronger. Singapore can also play an important role in global sports by hosting international events. He also said Singapore has the talent to produce "world beaters" and called for continued support for its athletes to grow and shine.
