Dr Amy Khor reminds Singaporeans: We will ‘listen’ to your views, but not all will be taken into account

It seems to be another PR exercise judging from the comments made by REACH Chairman and PAP MP Dr Amy Khor who issued a timely reminder to Singaporeans that “the government will hear all views and suggestions, but not all can be taken into account.”
In an interview with the state station 93.8 Live, Dr Amy Khor said:
“I think that the key really is to close the loop. Not all suggestions can be taken into account, of course. We will hear all views and all suggestions, but as in all things, there will always be trade-offs.”
On one hand, PAP leaders have been calling on Singaporeans to contribute their views on the future of Singapore, but on the other hand, not all their views will be accepted.
“There has to be balance because there are diverse views but what is important is that we close the loop. So, I think if suggestions are not taken into account, we should explain why they cannot be taken into account,” Dr Amy Khor added.
