CECA Intra-corporate transferee

The legal text of CECA has a stringent definition of an intra-corporate transferee.

Our high dependence on trade makes us vulnerable to anti-trade measures like tariffs. Our small size means our negotiating power is small. Being small means we have few weapons in our disposal for retaliation.

This is why Singapore takes a rules-based approach to international affairs and support multilateral institutions.

Today, more than half of Singaporeans in the workforce are in PMET jobs and the number is increasing.

Without the free trade agreements including CECA, Singapore would not be able to attract so many global multinationals to set up a company here, creating many PMET jobs for Singaporeans.

NTUC Job Security Council

The strong tripartite relationship between unions, employers and government is what sees Singapore through each crisis.

A weak labour movement cannot represent workers properly. It cannot get a fair deal from employers, cannot protect workers. What is bad for workers is bad for Singapore.

On the other hand, a strong labour movement but hostile, antagonistic and focused only on short-term interests of their members will hold back the country, and eventually, workers will get hurt.

A strong labour movement with strong support from workers, with a seat at the table, working closely and constructively with the government and employers working constructively to get the best deal for workers and find win-win solutions to all and advance national interests.
