Ethnic Integration Policy (EIP) is still needed, Pritam says

National Development Minister Desmond Lee is glad that WP has made a clear, political change of position on the need for the EIP. As Desmond elaborated, we still need the EIP:

"Because we want our void decks, playgrounds and hawker centres to be places where we meet and get to know neighbours from other races.
Because we want our children to grow up with children of different races.
Because we want to avoid situations where racial segregation in housing leads to inter-generational inequality and deep-seated racial tensions.
Because that is how we press on towards our ideal of a cohesive and multiracial Singapore."

The Government will never waver in their commitment to promote harmony among all races and ensure all Singaporeans enjoy full and equal opportunities in life. We must have the humility to acknowledge that our multiracialism is still work-in-progress and we must continue to press forward with the approach of mutual accommodation, trust and compromise, not jostling aggressively to assert one's identity and rights over others.

"Let us each be our brother’s keeper, our sister’s keeper, and let us move forward with a spirit of mutual respect and fellowship: educating each other about what matters to us, helping each other understand our different cultures, and finding the common stake we all have in one another."
