SINCE the first session of Parliament, our past and present leaders have led the way to develop this country into the economic powerhouse that it is today with bold roadmaps for further growth. The challenge now is to sustain Singapore’s future.
While disruptive forces threaten to upend local businesses and an ageing workforce, a smooth political succession is needed to ensure stability and enable the government to get on with efforts to support homegrown companies and its employees.
On the international front, proactive steps are needed to prepare Singapore against geopolitical uncertainties and trade tensions which could threaten the country’s growth and development.
In short, the government’s steps to address these issues will set the tone for Singapore’s future.
