Tan See Leng on foreign remote employees

04:15 Min

The Ministry of Manpower does not track the number of foreign remote employees hired by Singapore-based companies, Manpower Minister Tan See Leng said in Parliament on Monday (Feb 28). He said that as COVID-19 has led to remote working becoming more common, more companies may consider offshoring activities to lower-cost locations, especially for lower value-added work. To prevent this from happening with higher value-added work, he said Singapore must stay open to global trade and high-quality foreign manpower, while upskilling a strong local core of talent. Dr Tan was answering an MP's questions.
