There is always lots to talk about when it comes to manpower. That should surprise no-one given that human capital, like working capital, is the lifeblood of every business and every economy. The Chamber hosted Mrs. Josephine Teo, Minister for Manpower (MOM) yesterday and she shared MOM’s overarching priorities in the short, medium and long term as well as the specific ways the ministry supports businesses to build a more inclusive and progressive workforce. Pandemic management, the complementarity of foreign talent to and with local talent and the work pass system were all covered.
Following the Minister’s address there was a robust dialogue with members on a wide range of topics including the DP LOC issue, mental wellbeing, foreign students being able to work (not) and when borders will reopen (not so soon). The Minister was joined by her ministerial and Parliamentary colleagues forming a panel moderated by the Chamber’s Chairman Per Magnusson. We would like to thank Minister Teo and her colleagues for their time spent with us:-
– Mr. Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State for Defence and Manpower
– Ms. Gan Siow Huang, Minister of State for Education and Manpower
– Mr. Liang Eng Hwa, Member of the Government’s Parliamentary Committee on Manpower
