Confirmed, Sinkies are not good banker/CEO material

David Conner is retiring from OCBC after 10 years. He took over from Alex Au, the previous CEO. Alex was a Hongkie. The successor to David Conner is none other than another Hongkie, Samuel Tsien. DBS too did not have a local bred CEO for nearly two decades. The only local bank that still has a local in charge is UOB, which surprisingly is out performing the foreign run local banks if the value of its share price is an indicator.

What should be done to get our local boys and girls to be good enough to be the top dog of local banks in the banking industry? Why is it that they are all found wanting? What is so lacking in the local talents. Maybe the real talents are all into politics, making sacrifices to serve the people.

One way to make this situation less embarrassing to the Sinkie bankers and Singaporeans in general, is to include a citizenship application form when a foreigner is offer a CEO position in any large Singapore corporation. And the appointment will only be confirmed on approval of citizenship. Then all can be happy that the CEOs are Singaporeans, that Singaporeans also got talent.

Fuck public companies lah. Many Singaporeans needn't prove to the government they can make pots of money. Singapore's private sector is one of the most rocking in the world.

Fuck the government and all the government enterprises!

Matilah...Singapore's private sector is one of the most rocking in the world.
U sure or not.....you are correct if our private sectors consist of hawkers/taxi drivers/budget hotels/cleaners and security guards....otherwise 60-70% of our economy is cheng hu or cheng hu's spawnings le

Yeah hor... Then our ministers can peg their salary to these new-Singaporean in the computation of what the ministers are to get, right??

Singaporeans like to ask for trouble suggesting these ant thats and then get screwed when their suggestions get implemented. Hokkiens say 'gya lang kah tau', wack oneself with ones prick.
Just leave the talents to their doings lah!
Can?

Hi TG, welcome to the blog. The only sinkies left with some talent are in politics.

Well, I'd like to think so. Just my opinion. At least you can set up buisness VERY EASILY. Whether you succeed is entirely up to you.

It's tragic that the government corporations and "private" (nudge nudge wink wink) companies dominate. However the SPIRIT of private enterprise is so strong even the government wants to claim it can "play" in the private sector.

Why not? They have unlimited supply of CPF money to engage in outrageous adventurism! ;-)

Hey folks, me very small time player ok? I look for arbitrage here and there, win some, ok, so-so lah. Rice bowl got food, but rice bowl not made from iron.

These people are Titans who take advantage of MANY worlds and they are making more money than small time me can even imagine.

So if you low standard fuckers are jealous/ envious of me, please lah, RAISE YOUR STANDARDS and at least envy someone far more "big time" than me.

Such low standards. No wonder the vast majority of you are fucked. :-P

Matilah, sorry lah, no one will envy you. Every sinkie is at least half a millionaire. And anyone consider a winner is worth at least 10m. You can imagine how much the top 1000 income earners are worth. Those people who think that they need to be attracted by more pay to go into politics are insulting them.

You can imagine how much each minister is worth. The Brits ministers got no fight lah. In one term a fortune can be made.

You dumb ass. If you stay you too could be the speaker of Parliament and get $1m a year. Ooops, they just halved it. Still damn good money mah. You wasted your chance man.

Well, like I say, you can't fight CULTURE. Cannot compare with other cuntrees, especially the fast dying, once proud and strong The Kingdom of England.

The high-pay for ministers and super scale civil servants is here to stay. All this wayang is just plain dumb. The losers scream because they're too dumb to think, figure out what is best for them personally, then proceed to mind their own business.

The dumber Singapore becomes as a collective, the more money the sheeple will have to pay their ruling authority to keep the cuntree from sliding into the arseholenof the universe, from which there is no escape!
