Committee on the Future Economy of Singapore

A task force has been set up headed by Heng Swee Kiat to look into the future of Singapore’s economy. The Committee has identified five key areas in the development of the Singapore economy. Heng Swee Kiat would have a deputy in S Iswaran. The two will gather a team of 30 experts and professionals from different industries and backgrounds to chart the future of Singapore.

30 years ago Hsien Loong too headed a similar committee to look into the future of Singapore and an appointment of such a nature has very serious implications. In Hsien Loong’s case it was to put on notice that he is the PM in the making and the Committee he sat on would be used to cultivate and build his support base. Heng Swee Kiat is now given the same opportunity to build his base and looking good to be the future PM in the making.

A Committee to look into the economic development of the country is part and parcel of the planning process and also indicates the priorities of the govt. We had seen two decades of growth at all cost and how it has changed the fabric of our society and the demography of the people, now with many new citizens and foreigners.

What is missing till now is the security angle. The security of the country did not seem to warrant any attention other than the doctrine of a strong defence force to thwart a foreign invasion. The danger of bringing in so many foreigners and allowing them to take a controlling stake in many key industries and positions surely must deserve more considerations and raise concerns on the security of the country. How would these new citizens and foreigners impact on our national security, social security and the life of our citizens are serious matters that cannot be left to chance.

Would the govt think it necessary to form a Committee to review the security implications of the liberal and indiscriminate immigration policy? What is the point of economic growth when it ends up with the people losing their jobs, homes and even country to foreigners, to be replaced by foreigners?  What could happen if there is an international crisis, war, etc that calls on the loyalties of the new citizens and PRs and residents in the country to take sides or being exploited or attracted to do damage to the country’s security and other aspects of life and industries in the country?  What would happen if the Committee for economic growth recommends another CECA type of free trade agreements and open the immigration door wider still?

The security people must play a bigger role and a Committee on Security is calling and urgent in view of the immigration policy, the large foreign population and the problems of terrorism all over the world.  We cannot take our national security for granted and hope for the best.

What is Chee Hean doing or thinking as the Coordinating Minister for Defence and National Security? Should he call for the formation of a Committee to look into the security of our country?

When the new stations for Downtown Line (DTL) open this Sunday (27th December), adding 12 stations from Bukit Panjang to Rocher to the existing line, Transport Minister says that commuters should expect some "teething issues" over the next few months.
-----------------------------------------
Will a PAP Minister say the same thing if or when the PAP government opens a nuclear power plant in Singapore?
- imagine "teething" problems in a new nuclear power plant
---------------------------------------

In his blog post, Khaw said that engineers have done thousands of tests of the whole system over the past few months, including many tests between the integration points of DTL1 and DTL2, but his engineers have told him that a typical "bedding-in" period of several months is needed before the system stabilizes. Mr Khaw warned that train disruptions could be expected during this period.
--------------------------------------------------
- imagine Singapore's new nuclear power plant needing a typical "bedding-in" period of several months "before the system stabilizes".
- imagine us preparing for "disruptions"
---------------------------------------------------

“But we are working hard to minimise any disruptions in this teething process. We must also anticipate the worst, and have drawer plans for contingencies in the event that disruptions do occur.”
---------------------------------------
- I wonder what is the worst that can happen to a nuclear power plant in Singapore?
- and how are we going to prepare for that worst case scenario?

In a democracy, you get the traffic jams that you voted for.

Does Singapore have a long term future if there are plans to build a nuclear plant in Singapore?
- this is the elephant in the room
- Do you think the "Committee on the Future Economy of Singapore" will address this question?

PS:
Fukushima's nuclear disaster has destroyed the farming economy around the nuclear plant.
The area affected is several times the size of Singapore.

Ⓜatilah $ingapura⚠️ said...

This is one serious waste of time, money, resources and unnecessary because most people are UNIMPRESSED with this shit.

Here's how silly it is:

The PAP thinks it is necessary for CENTRAL PLANNING to ensure that the economy is OPEN and not centrally planned.

Huh?!? Yah, I know, a real head-scratcher this one...

If I believed there was a heaven, I would also believe that Lee Kuan Yew is now essentially running the place because he manage to convince and empirically prove to god (or whomever) that he, LKY made THE perfect cuntry despite god making an imperfect world.

Snap! The universe will from now on run by Lee Kuan Yew.

You Lee Kuan Yew ball-lickers should be happy. Your hero is now bigger than god.

Torn apart by an open door for migrants: Sweden is seen as Europe's most liberal nation, but violent crime is soaring and the Far Right is on the march, reports SUE REID
===================================================================================

In 15 years' time, demographers say, indigenous Swedes will be in a minority because the men who arrive are allowed to send home for wives and children, who in turn will have their own children.

The Swedish economist Tino Sanandaji, who himself has an Iranian-Kurdish background, recently described what's happening in Sweden as 'quite disastrous'. He said: 'This is an irreversible social experiment that no wealthy state has ever attempted. There are almost no ideas or visions over how this can be solved.

'You can't combine open borders with a welfare state. If you offer generous benefits, and anyone can come and use these benefits, a very large number of people will try to do that. It's just mathematically impossible for a small country like Sweden to fund that.'
