“Singapore’s situation is similar to other East Asian economies — like Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea — whose era of rapid growth is over. Singapore, like the others, is in search of new strategies and formulas,” he said.
PM Lee made use of the opportunity to remind Singaporeans who have a propensity to complain that Singapore is ‘better off’ than many others without using any examples.
He also encouraged everyone to stay positive, lead active lives and be self-reliant.
“While it will be easier for younger Singaporeans to adapt, it is also possible for older people to keep up, though help must continue to be provided,” he quipped.
