Speaking during a community event on Sunday, DPM Tharman said it’s important to keep the community close amidst an uncertain global economic outlook.
“What is very important for Singapore is that the community remains strong. And I feel quite confident that the government is doing a lot more especially for low-income folks and our senior citizens – some important new initiatives in this year’s budget, and in the last few years – we’re doing a lot more,” he said.
DPM Tharman added that Singapore has the strengths and ability to ensure that Singapore remains a strong and vibrant society no matter what happens elsewhere:
“Keep our community strong, and we will retain our confidence in our future, because we have strengths, we have abilities, we have the resources, to be able to plan for the future, invest in our young, take care of our old, and make sure that Singapore, whatever happens in the world, remains as strong and vibrant society.”
