CHAN CHUN SING: S'POREANS MUST BE OPEN TO FRESH IDEAS & FOREIGN TALENTS

Speaking at the annual Economic Society of Singapore (ESS) dinner on Thursday evening (7 Aug), Social and Family Development Minister Chan Chun Sing said that Singapore needs to look at strategies that will enable it to “future-proof” its society for the possible challenges ahead. He then talked about the need for Singapore to be open to ideas and talent. He said, “Darwin said that only the fittest will survive. But fitness is not just about strength but more about the speed of adaptation. To adapt fast, we must be open to ideas and talent. Ideas and talent are attracted to systems that protect and reward them.”
