The Chamber was honoured to host Dr. Tan See Leng, Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Trade and Industry for the second time this year to a closed-door, in-person dialogue on 13 October 2022.

Setting the stage for the dialogue, Ms. Gaby Leong, Manager (Research and Strategic Engagement) delivered a presentation on recent foreign manpower moves and the Forward Singapore Exercise.

Following the presentation was a dialogue with Dr. Tan See Leng moderated by Dr. Bicky Bhangu, SICC Chairman.  Dr. Tan highlighted the importance of attracting the right talent to drive a differentiated economy as the market recovers and steps out of the shadow of the pandemic. He also encouraged companies to build a diverse and inclusive workforce. While attracting foreign talent, companies should also continue to groom local talents to meet their manpower needs. The Q & A session with the audience covered a wide range of manpower-related topics.

We would like to thank Dr. Tan for spending his afternoon with Chamber members. Our thanks, too, to the audience for their engaged participation.
