Tan See Leng in debate on securing Singaporeans’ jobs and livelihoods, and foreign talent policy

01:06:04 Min

Singapore's strategies have worked for the vast majority of its people, said Manpower Minister Tan See Leng. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 14), he said while the Government cannot assure every Singaporean that their jobs will always be protected, it will work "very, very, very hard" to protect every Singaporean and ensure their employability. He said NCMP Leong Mun Wai has presented a "bleak and biased view" of an anxious and fearful Singapore, whose instinctive reaction to challenges is to withdraw from the world. He said the motion put forward by Finance Minister Lawrence Wong "acknowledges our anxieties, while affirming our achievements". It also preserves what has worked well, while pointing out the work to be done. He stressed that the Government is determined to fight any party wedded to racism and xenophobia, and a small-minded vision of Singapore.
