Singapore's response to the COVID-19 pandemic is a good example of Total Defence in action, Senior Minister of State for Defence Zaqy Mohamad said in response to MPs' questions in Parliament on Monday (Mar 1). "We will continue to strengthen all the pillars of Total Defence through collaborations with our partners," he said. With regard to adding biological and climate defences to the Total Defence pillars, he explained that they could be incorporated into the existing six pillars, urging for the focus to be on translating actions into impact.
