Debate on President's Address: Sylvia Lim on need for review on progress of multiracialism
The time is right to have a national exercise to study what progress has been made by society towards multiracialism, as well as concrete steps to move towards being a more race-blind society. MP Sylvia Lim, who made this call in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 1), proposed an open review of three areas. These are ethnic classifications and data, elections along ethnic lines and HDB's ethnic integration policy. "Singaporeans have already risen above tribal instincts on many occasions. We can go further with the right policies and signalling at the official level," she said.
