Gerald Giam in debate on securing Singaporeans’ jobs and livelihoods, and foreign talent policy

Singapore should have started a bigger push to encourage and enable more students to study IT two decades ago. There is now an urgent need to re-orientate the schools to prepare Singaporean students for career opportunities in technology to create a stronger pipeline of local talent. MP Gerald Giam, who made this call in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 14), urged Institutes of Higher Learning to move quickly to provide educational opportunities for ICT talent so that more Singaporeans can benefit from the thousands of well-paying tech jobs that are going to be created in the years ahead, and attract more companies to set up research and development centres here. He also stressed the need to provide a more level-playing field for Singapore to remain a competitive economy and cohesive society.
