Edward Chia in debate on securing Singaporeans’ jobs and livelihoods, and foreign talent policy

Singapore cannot live in fear of how the world is changing, said MP Edward Chia in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 14). He called for a multi-pronged approach to ensure that the country can keep its borders open, with a local workforce that is ready and relevant. One key factor is enhancing powers to tackle workplace discrimination, to ease workers’ minds about job security. Another is enhancing worker training. To that end, Mr Chia had several suggestions. One was to directly link employer transformation and employee upskilling, by requiring business transformation consultants appointed under Government help schemes to include staff training in support of their strategies.
