It is important to support young people who are preparing to enter the workforce after completing National Service (NS), MP Don Wee said in Parliament on Monday (Mar 1), adding that those entering the workforce in the current economic climate would face obstacles. He urged the Ministry of Defence to extend career guidance, counselling and employment support to national servicemen, and post-NS skills and training advisory services. He also asked if there were assistance schemes those in financial difficulties could tap and grants or loans for studies and training.
