Cheng Hsing Yao in debate on securing Singaporeans’ jobs and livelihoods, and foreign talent policy

Singaporeans must recognise that having a complementary local and foreign workforce is one of the things that makes Singapore attractive, although managing this mix is “a complex and emotive endeavour” that requires careful calibration, said NMP Cheng Hsing Yao. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 14), he said the country must welcome talent and investment so as not to let good opportunities slip by. He pointed to signs that Singapore could develop into a regional or even global hub in the technology, pharma-medical and sustainability sectors.
