Talent and data are the most basic and important factors in Singapore's efforts to thrive as a digital economy, said MP Tin Pei Ling. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Mar 2), she said Singapore needs data to innovate and talent to get things done. She wanted to know how the Government is actively grooming digital leaders, and if it would consider formally starting a mentorship programme for global top talent and company founders to mentor youths and start-ups here. She also wanted to know how the Government is attracting and retaining women to close the gender gap in the sector.
