foreigners remain open

To remain successful and to stay competitive as an economic hub, Singapore needs to remain open to the flows of people besides being open to trade and investments.

Staying open to the flows of people, however, does not mean staying 'blindly open' to foreigners.

Singaporean - Jobs by meritocracy not birth right job competition

Benjamin Chan says it is important to have Singaporeans in top jobs, but only by his/her own merits rather than their birthrights.

To the millennial Singaporeans – don’t assume it is your birthrights to get a job in Singapore. Fight for it and polish up your CVs.

To the MPs – don’t take the easy route of socialism and protectionism just to win votes. Preserve what made us an economic miracle but enforce fairness in the workplace so that qualified Singaporeans don’t get sidelined.

To the “other Singaporeans” – don’t just complain why other foreigners are ahead of you. Venture out and get some overseas experiences as well. Life is not always fair, deal with it!

global competition Singaporean Core

To strengthen the Singaporean core and reduce reliance on foreign workers, we need to increase our work productivity.
