Nurture local talents to become global talents, says who?

When I heard this over the news I thought it was someone quoting the old guards. The newsreader said this was Lim Swee Say’s call. To me it was a wake up call, a wake up call in the sense that a minister has woken up to realize that it is important to nurture our local talents to compete internationally, to become global talents. Have we been doing this? There have been so many news and complaints that the govt has been spending billions to nurture foreign talents and telling our local talents to fend for themselves, got money go overseas to get the degree of their choice. No money ask papa and mama to sell homes to finance them, and all ended up in debt.

And to take it one step further, the govt has been blowing their trumpets about how many foreign talents they have attracted to our shores to replace our degenerating local genes. Just open your eyes and cannot miss the foreign talents everywhere, in GLCs, in ministries and in Parliament.

What would happen to our local talents if this process continues unabated? What would happen if no minister is going to speak out about nurturing our local talents? Or what would happen now that Lim Swee Say is saying it? Would it matter, would it make any difference? Would the no need to grow our own timber policy continues?

Take a step back to some 30 years ago when the policies of the old guards were still in place, that was, to nurture our own local talents. If that policy was not in place then, ministers like Lim Swee Say and many other ministers, our CEOs in the GLCs, permament secretaries, deputy secretaries, generals, commissioners, judges etc etc, would they be where they are today? Or would their places be filled by foreigners and they be like the PMETs of today, being replaced prematurely by clever foreigners and have to be retrained to be cleaners or security guards? Or would they be self employed, be their own bosses as taxi drivers?

How many of our ministers and natural aristocrats benefited from the old guards’ policy of growing our own timber, nurturing our own talents to be our own leaders and head honchos? Why would those who benefited from the nurturing own talents policy turned around to say, better to nurture other people’s talents and fill our top positions with foreign talents? Why are they so ungrateful, that after crossing the bridge they cut the bridge, to say our local talents no good, no need to nurture them?

Is Lim Swee Say the proverbial one swallow in winter, or was he making a politically correct statement and with no intent to follow up? Would there be other ministers coming to say the same thing and then come up with policies to nurture our own talents for real?

Just wait and see.

It's a little too late to nurture our local talents to become global talent. Because the 70% dafts Sinkies already give a blank cheque to the ruling party to do whatever they want,ie , to continue ruining their lives of importing millions of Thrashes in the expense of economic growth at all costs. There is no need to blow the trumpets because many of our top notch local talents r now emigrated overseas ( some to Silicon Valley) & they never wanto return to their homeland even after coercing by our PM Ah Loong...nurturing our own talents may even cause them to leave our shore at a quicker pace..it's a lost cause ( after sleeping on their jobs for 30years).

The WP should ask the garment how many foreigners have they nurtured over the last two decades, through the generous scholarships they have given, and how many foreigners were given the chance to train and gain experience as CEOs in our local companies and become global talents.

Wake up call?

U mean they have been sleeping since 1990?

Uncle RB, dun beat around the bush?

A spade is a spade?

Sleeping for past 30 years since GKS stepped down is sleeping?

Wake up is just a mirror image many BOLEES have been SLEEPING past 30 years?

Tiok Bor?

If just woke up implies have been sleeping?

No?

Kooning on the job but paid $5 millions a year including up to 2.5 years or 30 months bonuses?

The Pappies nurture their pockets for their succeeding generations to live affluently in Sin, or likely in mansion and villa overseas.

And be assured that if Swee Say gets to know a Sinkie is successful oversea, he(S Say) will claim credit as if every successful Sinkie oversea is nurtured by the Regime.

No fork tongues and double faces politician is trustworthy.

RB s 2 articles are connected if put under "slavery". Lincoln died of a bullet on assassination. He settled US slavery and civil war. Sg is no bigger than half of New York. It was a well known spot of modern slavery. It pushed up its currency. Made its border uncontrolled. A minister declared to US congress men sg was not a nation but a global city. True enough, many pinoys and indians took the convenience to become citizens and PR. There are also many known language speakers could be from vietnam myannma or east asia. The combined of PR 600k and probably 500k new citizens is already 50% of native born citizens head counts.

These new citizens and PR were attracted by the good jobs at lower than citizens preferred salaries. They take up the luxury to them similar to slaves in US wanted to work for the master s families during Lincoln s time.

Soon these families chose to be new citizens will find the same problems the current native born citizens are facing: high cost eat at their low salaries, cpf contribution took away their chances to change jobs, NS for their sons. PR r smarter. Their next generation sons may stay away not to live here, while the old hacks live alone slaughtering to buy lands in Philippines and India, be the sons slaves.

There are citizens slaves. The sons after NS could not enter NUS or NTU would ask papa for money to study overseas. After graduated thinking could re unit with old papa at home, but find themselves jobless in singapore. Foreign talents are the in thing, swee swee said it, cheaperest, fasterest, as good as tooth picks, can take away free even, in boxes. Graduates has no value as long as the show potential employers their I?C/ Pink, see liao. Employer cpf is a problem, NS in camp is another problem, IPPT lagi a sickening problem. Employers hire foreign talents from India, master degrees a lots, yet asking for less than $3k net net.

Citizens NS sons have no choice. Leave the old sick papa and go oversea. Every new year, families have re union dinner, the old sick couple eat simple dinner alone. Sons kee telok? This is what slave driving singapore want it to be.

Then come the grand sons. Teens standing height, speak no local language, looking at the old papa as if meeting stranger. Luckily, old sick papa said: my grand son is not a citizen here. No NS. His eyes brighten when saying this. I nodded. Bagus. That grand son is no long slave and all his future generations will not be too. Thanks for the foreign talent policy. Swee swee was never right, always spoke at the wrong timing. He words should spoken 10 years ago, not now.

DON'T even try to believe ONE single word from this Talk-Cock King, who is only interested in
receiving and looking at his CPF Statement every month.

Whenever politicians, especially Singapore's pseudo politicians, talk watch their actions. Their actions
speak louder than their words. Words are hollow, they have no meanings whatsoever until they are transformed
into sincere, genuine, quantifiable actions.

Usually, when pseudo politicians talk, they will do exactly the opposite. Think about it.

Rb, Swee Swee recently said that chartered bank employed 90% local. That is correct factually as local includes new citizens and PR. But everyone knows thT chartered bank is an Indian bank, Knn so he knows or blur blur?

Politicians always said things like that to exploit the locals even more. They will come out with schemes all to achieve that all with the local taxpayers monies. But the bulk of the money will go into their own private pockets.

How are they going to do it?

By shouting "SLOGAN"?

MOE schools now teach until students whose parents have $$$ need send their kids for as much tuition as their kids can squeeze in?

BOTAK, in 2004, keep "SHOUTING" TLLM - Teach Less Learn More

After 12 years, the current "dire" state students facing is the outcome ( as evidenced by the need for most students to attend tuition to make it through )?

How is SWEE SWEE going to do it?
