Committee for Future Economy – CFE

It is very easy to make comments about the CFE reports. Just sit down and put a comb over it to pick put the white hair and the fleas and dust. It is also just as easy to make 7 or 10 motherhood statements about what should be done in the future. Just gather a few heads and within a day or two you could get all the motherhood statements you want. The big question, how real and how useful are these motherhood statements?

To gaze at a crystal ball, to foresee the trends, developments and challenges, is not the normal cup of tea for anyone not armed with the width and depth of intellect to look into the future. You need very serious thinkers and dreamers to make out something from nothing or from what we have today. Who would be up to it to make such great insights into the future and come out with workable recommendations to benefit from the changes? If only you can find someone who could make the right intellectual and educated guesses, this guy would be as good as God.

As a small little country with limited resources and limited aspirations, we need to be real and practical about what we want to do and what we can do. No doubt having big and wild dreams and wet dreams are ok, as these are just dreams. It is better to look at more realistic and practical targets and solutions like capitalising on our strength and how to fit into the changing world, and make the best of it. We have several good starts but due to the lack of foresight, the lack of dreamers, the lack of support, we let them passe. Sim Wong Hoo's sound card was at the fore front of the computer industry. Hyflux's water purification system too was well ahead of its time. Now they are just ordinary, one among many and fading away. If only the govt had invested and supported them in bigger ways, they could be the Samsung or the Xiaomi today. Samsung and Xiaomi did not have any proprietory products to start with. They simply copied and improved on what others have done and make it big time. We were the leading transportation hub for many decades but now going to be eclipsed too.

A more down to earth and more mundane model to understand how we have gone wrong and missed the opportunities, and missed the boat is public transportation, the train. When we laid the ground work for the first MRT, China was still an impoverished country. Transportation in China was Second WW train system, running like tortoises on coal. Today China is the front runner in high speed train system, an authority and a big mover in building international train network and infrastructure. They have developed many in house expertise and patents in every aspect of the train system, from design to manufacturing, turnkey projects to operations. They are building the train infrastructure for the future and for the world.

What have we achieved in managing our train network? What have we achieved for having a head start in mass rapid transport? Nothing. We are still struggling to make sure the train runs without fault daily. We did not have any expertise in anything concerning mass rapid transport. When a fault occurs, we start looking out for outside expertise for help, even stupid enough to pay for expertise from third world dysfunctional train systems calling themselves experts in modern train technology. We have not acquired any expertise in mass rapid transportation to turn it into a business except as an operator. After 50 years in the business, no experts in the business.

This example applies to practically every industry. Should not Singapore be exporting our expertise with our own experts in areas of air and sea port management and development? No, we are dependent on foreigners to run our ports, to manage our ports, to find new directions for our ports. We have zero expertise to talk about when we have been big operators for decades ahead of other countries. We are top air and sea ports but have no expert in these fields.

Look at the banking and finance industry. This is another joke. We are the financial centre of Southeast Asia and competing with Tokyo and Hongkong to be the top financial centre of Asia. Ask what kind of expertise we have, what kind of local experts and professionals we have that are sought after by other financial centres? It is a joke that we have to import all our top financial talents from abroad, even from the third world countries with rudimentary financial system and village banks. Soon there will be no local bankers left in the finance industry and all the top bankers would be foreigners. And I remember someone saying we are starting to develop our top bankers that would come on stream in 50 years time. No need to talk about the IT industry.

What is this CFE all about? Should we be bothered with gazing at the crystal ball of the future? How could such an exercise benefit the country and people when there are very serious challenges facing the country that no one could see or want to talk about? We may not have a thriving Singapore in another 30 years if we don't address the serious fundamental problems of the country and the shallow mindset that is supposed to be driving the country forward. We have happily awarded the contract to build the HSR terminal to foreign contractors when we should be building it ourselves and bidding for such contracts overseas like the Korean companies. Maybe we should start to bid in a big way for contracts in other countries to build hawker centres. This is about the last area of expertise we still have, but not for long. Is there anything that we are good at today to compete with the rest of the world?

I do agree that more should be done to help our local companies. When awarding contracts, some considerations must be made to give local companies a chance. Even if government thinks local companies have no specific know-how, make it a must to joint venture when awarding successful bids. It is ok to include in the tender that joint venture companies will have added advantage. Unfortunately, government treat local companies like any other players and award contracts to the cheapest bidders. How can local companies fight with big MNCs who have humongous capital muscles.

A Sec 4 normal stream student could have written those CFE (Come, Fxxx, Enjoy, as one blogger commented wittily) Recommendations produced by the Heng Swee Keat team over a year. South China Morning Post published an article yesterday lamenting at that utter lack of ideas. Disgraceful.

You are FIRED. Not just Heng, whoever at top of the heap, whoever approves those recommendations . Get more capable economists and politicians to replace the incompetent leadership.

Ha ha ha

To be fair, "peesai" could have done much better in many areas in the past 27 years from 1990 when the baton was passed to a "chatao" (wooden in English, old man said de during a NDR) for 14 yrs?

On the other hand, if u observed carefully (overseas especially neighbouring countries), there are many areas "peesai" exported ....... so not fair to say hawker ctrs only areas "peesai" strong in?

Uncle RB, there is no use lamenting the useless CFE Liao. All these r gahmen wayang to tell the masses that they already run out of ideas...( minionster Heng has all his powers taken away by the Superior Being from up there)..if we keep complaining, & if u think back it's all our fault bcos we dun have a strong opposition team to form & run the gahmen & its agencies...part of the problem is created by the miws gahmen, too much emphasis on FTrashes so much so that the talented ones leave our shores..Sinkies also has low TFR due to some of miws bad policies & poor planning & the problem will be there even foreigners aren't reproducing...

Tiok. Even in the politics industry, where is little or no technology involved.

After more than 50 years of independence, the Sinkie opposition is still not strong and ready to be govt.

And if this cannot even be achieved, how to have a Sinkie Samsung or Xiaomi, or to have made in Sinkieland MRT trains and transport systems, u tell me lah?

Oh I forgot, we have developed the Sinkie Terrex brand armour vehicles. But before got chance to use in a real war, already kena detained. How to fight?

Who is this "we" that is going to bid for big contracts?
Hasn't PAP government already collected most of our money?
This is why it's wrong to collect more money than is needed to operate a government.
The old fart was dead wrong about collecting more money.

/// Is there anything that we are good at today to compete with the rest of the world? ///
- Do you think our PAP Mental Masturbators are good at:

a) collecting more money from Singaporeans?
b) bench-marking their salaries to justify even more salary increase for themselves?
c) promoting and maintaining the highest per capita concentration of Generals even though we have the smallest professional army in the world.

Knn ......

Mee dun swear vulgar words ...... but cannot help it liao ......?

Aren't such statements often originating from students at JC level Pre-U seminars (over the footking donkey years)?

And JC students can often even put out much better (motherhood statements) than these?

After reading such statements that day, mee (in a moment of "extreme fury and disgust") "smashed the printed copy on the floor (what a boss would in front of their staff at a piece of "atrocious low standard report/ work" .......)?

Ha ha ha .....

Just kidding ..... (din do that lah, not so siao, as if i care [so much] ..... ha ha ha actually a bit have lah but nowadays waning and lesser and lesser liao ....... dunno why oso?)

But this is no laughing matter for majority sinkies (especially the masses/ heartlanders) ......?

//We call upon the Singaporeans of today, young and old, to be the pioneers of the next generation.//

What kind of strategy is this when JC students can make far better motherhood statements especially during pre-u seminars?


//We shall progress by embracing new realities and creating new opportunities.//


Omg?

U mean when "peesai" was kicked out in 1965, LKY cried for nothing and "didn't embrace the new realities"?

GKS, TCC, HSS, EWB, and all the other old guards didn't "create new opportunites" then?

U need more than 12 months, 30 members, countless tea and makan sessions (costing tens or even hundreds of millions taxpayers dollar$$$$) involving more than 9,000 sinkies to make motherhood statements that JC students could have done better during pre-u seminars?

Does anybolee need proof to list out many similar statements made in the past donkey years by JC students during pre-u seminars?

And many were even better?

Nonetheless, there were some good points raised overall (in the report) but far and few in between that can raise the game or being game changer?

Sinkies in for hard time cos there are many unsaid/ not mentioned implications over next few years and beyond?

You see, sing song talk cock over rated and over educated idiotic leaders need to have their cocks massaged first before you can get things done. And hey teach you to do that with each other. After a while, when you massage each other cocks, every one become cock heads. You like meh, think like cocks and look like cocks?

Pls lah. Amos says...fuck you bunch of idiots. See, how to progress for people like him because he refused to massage the cocks.

Well, for those who willing to massage and serve cocks, how many like them? Seriously...so seriously, with millions of cock sucking foreigners adding to the pretensciouness.

All cock sucking idiots in Sin milking each other for what? Money making Innovation and creativity? You believe? Pls...lol

Cock suckers can come up with only cock sucking idieas, understand? At the end of the day, cock heads can only enslave everyone to be cock suckers. So your primarily role must be to obey the laws of cockheads there after, massage cock head with your ideas if you want to be richly rewarded.

In that case, might as well go foreign country and suck cocks lah. At least, you get bigger space there to have sex lah

Anonymous said...

Take a leaf from media cocks. Look at media cocks artistes, all cock suckers. some of these "Creative people" after making money from cockheads quit and freelance or just spend more time with family etc.

You suck too much cocks, your mouth and communication will look and sound like cock. Unless you want your children to look and sound like cock, you rather quit for their sake. But there is no escaping in Sin. You need to suck cocks before anything.

Seriously, who watches their production? Must be idiots who support singaporean youtubers type right? Yeah right, with 70% idiots, great future Hor

Think Sin is not that bad as painted.
lt has at least 2 to 4 decades to survive albeit it shall be very challenging for the Average Sinkies.
Sinkies themselves are very aware and they empathize with their leeders, at least about 70% currently do and by the Next General Election it could be well over 80%.

As for the Current Regime planning for the Development of Sin, rest assure they will do their very best. ln a decade or two, the Sin Rulers themselves shall have plenty of investments abroad and many of their offsprings would have being foreign citizens.

Like what Commenter b had said many times; the Sin Government is in a way showing Sinkies the Way subtly to leave Sin. lt os up to Sinkies to take their initiative.

SIN SHALL BE A HAVEN FOR THE RICH AND ELITE IN TIME YO COME. SO, UNLESS SOMETHING UNTOWARDS HAPPEN TO SIN, SIN IS ONLY BAD TO THE POOR.

How LO(OOOOOOOOOO.....OOOOOO)NG would each motherhood statment takes to reach its goals?

And by how much does it affect the growth?

And by how LO(OOOOOOOOOO.....OOOOOOO)NG does it affect the growth?

All these are unanswered questions?

Also many other unanswered questions?

How much will it costs ($$$$$$$$$.......$$$$$$$$$)?

$$$ ($$$$$$$$.........$$$$$$$) come from where (poor sinkies? Backsides gg to "tear" le?)?

Meanwhile, growth comes from where?

How much would the short run policies cost ($$$$$$ ........$$$$$$$$) over the next few years while waiting for all these mostly motherhood statements to (be implemented and) work?

Again (short run policies) $$$$$ come from where and what are the MEC (marginal efficiency of capital) spent?

Dun say going to be 2 to 3 year old (newly) renovated hawker centres going tear down (again) and rebuild?

And oso "PUB-type" dig one road( causing so much traffic obstructions, downtime, loss of economic output, jams and sometimes even traffic accidents ....), then put cables, covered back, then few weeks ( and sometimes mths) later dig again, same things happened all over again?

This is what the so called motherhood statements "deepen capabilities ......", " strengthen enterprise innovate ......" ....... omg ......?

Totally mismatch with realities and ground leh?

CFE Report Executive Summary Pg: 5

///20. In our next phase of internationalisation, our people will need to acquire deeper knowledge of regional markets. They can only do so by spending time in these markets. We should use the SkillsFuture Leadership Development Initiative (LDI) to expose potential corporate leaders to quality overseas assignments. We can also do better to ease the concerns of Singaporean parents over their children’s education when taking on overseas assignments. For instance, online platforms such as the Student Learning Space can be used to help their children stay in touch with the national curriculum. We can also smooth the transition when these children return to Singapore – for example, by facilitating their enrolment in the International Baccalaureate programme – to ensure continuity of learning.///

CFE or not, at the end of the day, the reins are in garment hands?

And many functions of governance already long ago institutionalised?

So good or bad, the institutions act as stabilizers (and even/ weed out "fluctuations")?

But frankly hor, this report like everything oso want to improve or change?

Like that kind of remind of those students in exam regurgitate (/"vomit") all the points then let teachers choose what points are relevant?

As far as marking are concerned, usually such answers cannot get high marks de cos never answer to the question (but just "vomit" everything the students know in their answers)?

Frankly, for a patient, how to operate from head to toe and make the patient recover?

And how to coordinate all the surgeons and nurses from like 20+ to 30+ areas of specialties?

When, what, how much medicationa to take for each operation done almost at the same time?

Got such thing in real world meh?

Also, while waiting for the patient to "survive such an ordeal", common sinkies eat grass or what?

Don't make sense right?

So, the only hope now (for sinkies) is rely on the institutions built by old guards (to withstand the turbulence if any)?

Redbean, Spore is excellent at stupidity, boasting,
refusing to hear contradictory views and criticism,
building up a culture of yes men, twisting facts and
figures, giving up our businesses/jobs to foreigners,
offering unbelieveable reasons for policies, fear,
raising prices, useless construction to raise the GDP.
Lots more when you sit down and think about it. Sad!

THE MAD, MAD WORLD - PART 1B

The Madness of the US-Engineered Coup That Toppled, Raped and Murdered Muammar Qaddafi!

For whatever intents or purposes, the Mad US Media has successfully painted Muammar Qaddafi as a cruel dictator, a tyrant or whatever they called him. They failed to show the kind, caring and giving aspects of Qaddafi to his people.

These are the facts about the Libyan Leader, Muammar Qaddafi:

1. There is no electricity bill in Libya - electricity is free for all its citizens.

2. There is no interest on loans - banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.

3. Housing is considered a human right in Libya – Qaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Qaddafi's father died while he, his wife and his mother were still living in a tent.

4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$50,000) from the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.

5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya - before Qaddafi only 25% of Libyans were literate; today 83% of Libyans are literate. 25% of Libyan Citizens have a University degree.

6. Should Libyans want to take up farming careers, they would receive a piece of farm land, a farm house, farming equipment, seeds and livestock to kick-start their farms – all provided free by the government.

7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free, but they also get a US$2,300 per month allowance for accommodation and transportation.

8. If a Libyan buys a new car from Libya, the government subsidized 50% of the price.

9. The price of petrol in Libya is only US$0.14 per liter.

10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now frozen globally.

11. If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation, the State would pay the average salary of the profession as if he or she is employed, until employment is found.

12. A portion of Libyan oil sale is credited directly to the bank accounts of ALL Libyan citizens. Under Qaddafi's Oil-Revenue-Sharing Program, each Libyan gets US$500 dumped into his or her bank account every month.

13. A mother who gives birth to a child receives US$5,000 immediately.

14. Price of daily common-need commodities, e.g. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs only US$0.15.

15. Qaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country. The water is free of charge to All Libyan Citizens.

16. Women in Libya have equal rights, not only as a philosophy, but also in practice.

17. Libyans have a direct participatory democracy based on People’s Conferences that puts other “democracies” to shame.

18. One thing is certain: the Libyans never knew the meaning of poverty under Qaddafi.

19. Prior to the international sanctions placed on Qaddafi & Libya in the 1980s, the country was one of the richest in the world by GDP per capita – with a living standard higher than Japan. It was the richest in Africa, before the US-Engineered Coup to topple, rape and murder Qaddafi.

20. The living standard – GDP per capita is $11,314 for Libya. One cannot claim the Libyans are poor if they live better than many of the Western citizens. Qaddafi always looked after the average Libyan.

21. A country’s wealth used to depend on how much gold it had in the treasury, not how many dollars it traded. Libya also has 144 tons of gold. The UK, for example, has twice as much, but ten times the population.

22. Regarding the terrorist label branded upon Qaddafi: Libya is the only country in North Africa where terrorists do not exist. Fundamentalists have no voice whatsoever in Libya. Not a single terror-incident has been recorded in Libya during Qaddafi's regime.

Was the US mad to want to destabilize a peaceful country just because she does not suck up to the madness of USA?

I think people come to realize that this small island is only a good stopover. When doing well, the elites took all the credits and gave the people high immigrats from third world and high costs. When doing poor, the elites blamed the people and gave them increase transport, parking, healthcare costs to continue to milk them. Every smart youngsters want to get out. The system is broken long time ago. The fault lies on the elites. They are selfish and greedy but that applies everywhere.

SINGAPORE — As a two-time convict, Ms Moon, 28, whose name has been changed for privacy reasons, did not think she would get a job or a community that would accept her drug-related criminal past.

However, after she landed a job at Nando’s Chickenland Singapore, Ms Moon found herself surrounded by supportive and encouraging colleagues at the restaurant. In one year, she has been promoted from being a service crew member to a “buddy” trainer. She hopes she will be able to become an assistant manager one day.

These are the kind of stories Sin likes to preach. She once was lost but now she has found life and life. And life is a new course of slavery in the form of a a job which offers her hope to work for the rich and be rich.

But many never become rich but instead, if lucky, suspended between hell and heaven which is as good as dead. You see many of these pioneers rotting away in housing estates.

Many young now will join them soon.

REMEMBERING LT ADNAN SAIDI & THE MALAY REGIMENT WHO DEFENDED S'PORE TILL THE END
---------------------------
Lieutenant Adnan Saidi, commander of Platoon No. 7 of C Company, 1st Battalion, was one of those who perished during the Battle of Pasir Panjang.

Although he was seriously wounded during the attack, Adnan and his troops refused to surrender, and fought the Japanese to the very end. When he was captured by the Japanese, Adnan was shot, bayoneted and his body hung by his legs from a tree.

Why not a memorial to him at the place where he and his Platoon has fallen defending Singapore?

What is CFE?

Earlier on, I asked, "What is CFE?" Because I was very ignorant, I could not comprehend what it was all about. I read so many commentators, obviously trying their best to draw attention to it, kept repeating the evergreen 7 "strategies", which could have been lifted from some thesis, dissertations or college students' essays.

After I read the explanation above, thanks to RB, I am now a little bit enlightened. But I couldn't help but kept laughing my guts out. Future Economy! I asked myself, "Is there such a thing as "Future Economy"? How do you define "Future Economy"? Based on what parameters, what criteria? How do you predict the outcome of the "Economy" in the next five or ten years?
How can you see into the "Future"?

You simply can't! Nobody, not even the Genius of Geniuses, can see what the "Future" will be. Maybe a group of top Singapore Scholars can? Then we should all give them the title "Gods".

Whoever is trying to tell others what to do for the "Future Economy" - whether 7 strategies or 14 strategies - would have to know what the "Future" will be. Can he? Even if he had the best vision with super intelligence, he simply CANNOT! This is common sense. So, please don't try to bluff the commoners with flowery words by pouring old wine into new bottles. Not only China-Bashing MUST stop. All Bull-Shitting MUST stop.

I am now more convinced that CFE means CON, FRIGHTEN and ELIMINATE.

Let me repeat what I explained earlier on:

1. They CON you, as a matter of Standard Operating Procedures. They will do their best to impress upon you how capable they are, even to the extent of paying CON-sultans to rename Marina Bay, Marina Bay after wasting taxpayers' money $750,000. They will try their utmost to convince you what they will be doing for you, with you and stand-by you. Then they will "bribe" you by dishing out a few pieces of sweeteners and goodies from what has been left over in the previous year inside their waste-baskets.

2. Next, they FRIGHTEN you with internal and external security problems, internal economic difficulties, external Geo-politico-economic factors, and/or terrorists threats, and so on and so forth. Or, they will keep telling you, you are not good enough, even scoring 97 marks out of 100 marks is not good enough; even having acquired with a MBA form World Best University called NTU, is a mismatch in the local job market. They keep reminding you that foreigners from 3rd World Countries like India, Philippines, Vietnam are better than you. And when you are doing well in your own little private business, they disrupt you by calling you up for In-Camp Training Overseas for 3 to 4 weeks, in order to screw you good and proper, so that you cannot even compete with foreign trash. Finally, you have to give up your little private business and go and become a taxi driver or security officer (guard).

3. Then they will ELIMINATE you, if you still do not succumb to all the above! This can be done in many ways. One way is to get the Tax Collectors to dig into your tax returns. Another way is to get the CPIB to go after you. Yet another is to sue you till bankrupt; or send you the a mental hospital either for good or to destroy your credibility, credentials and career. Or, they will character-assassinate you, if you are attempting to become an Opposition member in the Parliament. Finally, the most cruel and ruthless way, of course, is to imprison you without trial for as long as they want, through the use of the ISA.

Talk is cheap. Let us see how the seven "strategies" are translated into practical actions that can benefit not only the Instant Multi-Millionaire Ministers and the Chosen Elites, Cronies, Temasek Holdings, GIC, NTUC and GLCs, but EACH AND EVERY SINGAPOREAN, even those Pioneers who are on Pension without annual adjustment for inflation!

Peanuts for us Singaporeans.

Sex sells. The economy is sexy. The 7 deadly Sins are what they are peddling. Being human, you can't resist and naturally are exploited for profit. They then use the profit and seduce you with more sex.

You approvingly submit to more sexual exploitation. You can't get enough so you went overseas to recruit more into your sex ring for orgy session.

You are a productive sex slave in denial so don't blame the pimps.

Rb //Maybe we should start to bid in a big way for contracts in other countries to build hawker centres.//



Uncle RB,

U r wrong?

There is an even more "special" commodity found only in the "peesai" .......?

Skin, very thick ones?

When human can "twist" motherhood statements that many run contrary to realities into "strategies" which are supposed to lead slaves out of the wilderness, who could do that if they dun have skins thicker than crocodile hides?

7 "strategies" that tell the slaves they can "turn stones in the deserts into bread"?

Sand into "water"?

By reciting these "magical" motherhood statements in the middle of no where?

Do u think the slaves can walk out of the deserts alive?

So, dun forget sinkieland has comparative advantage in another commodity, skins, very thick ones that can be used to replace those latest inpenetrable armour tank plates?

Faster market to the tank manufacturers worldwide in Germany, US, Russia etc abt this latest thick skins stronger than the best armour plates the tank manufacturers have in their arsenal?

About gadafi, i had spend at least 10 hours getting information about him. Of course he looks evil. But remember the story Beauty and the Beast. So here are my views.
1. Gdf overthrown king Idris in 1967. Priorly, it was seen that Idris was a coward, when italians attacked, he ran away. Then idris pakat with british.who helped drive away the cruel italians army. Idris was installed as king, but he is a puppet of the british. After oil was discovered, idris allowed british to siphon off all the oil money to british. Gdf got fedup with this nonsense, so he staged a bloodless coupdetat.
2. Gdf reformed n mordernise libya in the first 15 years or so. Libya became the envy of the muslim world. This is true, not fake. Ask any muslim.
3. The 1988 lockerbie bomb was done by an individual Libyan but evidence on his guilt is not conclusive. Gdf offered $1 billion to the west because he cannot tahan the economic sanctions against him. So the world assumed he ordered lockerbie bomb. He had always maintained he was not the mastermind.
4. Gadafi soon became friend of usa, uk as well, because he denounced terrorism. Hillary even shook hand with him, and he visited Washington.
5. Gadf was brutal to his enemies. But libya, it has the most oil in africa. So those in bengahzi always want to break away.., some foreigners pretended to be libyans. they eventually got CIA support.
6. Gadf was almost succeding to built United States of Africa, he led numerous difficult Afro countries . His concept of using gold to sell oil was too much for the west,
7. Gadf always claim a lot of the "rebels" were from non Libyans, so he has a right to respond and solve the rebels, who were armed by Hillary.
8. Hillary and obama lied and said gdf will bomb many many libyan civilians, so without congress approval, NATO use military force.
9. After gdf was gone, the devil was released, there were afro mercenaries, and isis, and al-Qaida all grab the Libyan weapons and pretend to be rebels, because American is supporting "rebels" to install "democracy"
10. President putin has condemned numerous times obama lies that led to gadafi murder.
Don't believe? Never mind. Gdf unfortunately has an evil face, not like pretty hillary clinton. Do not judge a person by his looks.

The following are the glaring threats to the Singapore economy, yet those who pride themselves to be world best leaders have embarked upon shoulder-rubbing highfalutin rhetoric to make themselves feel good, instead of seriously coming out with concrete measures to tackle these imminent threats:

1. The Anti-Globalization Movement of the West.
2. The challenges to Singapore's positions as the Air-Hub in the Region.
3. The increasing threats to Singapore as an Entrepot Port.
4. The advancement of clean energy technologies to replace fossil fuels.
5. The increased utilization of robotics and artificial intelligence.

The CFE report is nothing but a re-bottling of reports painted by the Economic Strategies Committee in 2010 and the Economic Review Committee in 2003. A sampling comparison of these reports shows the similarity:

1. Innovation and growth
CFE: Partner each other to enable innovation and growth.
ESC: Make skills, innovation and productivity the basis for sustaining Singapore’s economic growth.
ERC: [Bank] on creativity and innovation to power the economy.

2. Helping incubators and startups
CFE: Research in universities...adds buzz to university incubators.
ESC: Introduce...incubator spaces for creative industries and start-ups.
ERC: Continue to nurture local...incubators and startups.

3. Manufacturing and services
CFE: Build on our strengths in key manufacturing and services sectors.
ESC: Be a key global center for high value manufacturing and services.
ERC: Remake Singapore into a diversified economy powered by...manufacturing and services.

4. Aviation and shipping connectivity
CFE: Strengthen [our] status as a global aviation and shipping hub...and enhance [our] digital connectivity.
ESC: Strengthen our [aviation and maritime] trade linkages and enhance our connectivity.
ERC: Maximize air and sea connectivity to strengthen supply-chain offering to manufacturers.

5. MNC-SME collaboration
CFE: Foster collaboration between larger corporations and Singapore-based SMEs.
ESC: Provide incentives for MNCs to co-develop innovative products and services with SMEs.
ERC: Remake Singapore...where vibrant Singapore companies complement MNCs.

6. Foreign workers
CFE: Ensure that our local workforce is complemented by skilled foreign workers.
ESC: Give employers incentive to retain experienced and skilled foreign workers.
ERC: Ensure that our foreign worker policies...allow companies to employ the workers they need.

7. Intellectual Property development
CFE: Commercialise the research findings and IP of our research institutions.
ESC: Grow...headquarter-related activities, R&D, IP management
ERC: Strengthen R&D efforts...so as to create and exploit IP.

8. Developing workers
CFE: Companies should play a bigger role in developing their workers.
ESC: Maximise the potential and performance of every worker.
ERC: Assist companies with preparation, training and upgrading of their Singaporean workers

9. Global city
CFE: A globally-oriented people with deep and relevant skills, in a smart city that encourages vibrancy, sustainability and connectivity.
ESC: The best quality education, advanced skills, research capabilities, and the infrastructure and connectivity of a global city.
ERC: A globalised economy where Singapore is the key node in the global network, linked to all the major economies.

10. Risk-taking, entrepreneurship and innovation
CFE: Develop an innovative society, where our enterprises and people...are adept at creativity and risk-taking.
ESC: Make enterprise innovation pervasive.
ERC: Evolve new social values which celebrate entrepreneurship and risk-taking.

After two long years of research and study by a huge group of "experts", what has the CFE offered? Zilch! Nothing that is new! It could only be madness that the CFE has failed to make concrete, workable recommendations to really transform the Singapore economy.
