Grace Fu: Singapore Conversation turned out the way I had expected

Speaking to queries from the media, Ms Fu said:
“The Singapore Conversation is not meant to be an extended Meet-the-People Session and it has turned out the way we had expected,” she said.
The Singapore Conversation was given extensive publicity by the state media of late as a channel for the government to reach out to ordinary Singaporeans.
“I hope there’s a platform where we can hear a variety of views. There may be a minority who are treating it as a platform to air bread-and-butter issues, but I believe this platform is necessary. I believe once Singaporeans have participated in it multiple times, they would understand its aim better and set their sights further to talk about what they hope for Singapore to become 20 years from now,” Ms Fu added.
