HOW MANY SINGAPOREANS ARE ACTUALLY LIVING ABROAD?

It states that “A fairly high proportion of about 6 per cent of Singapore citizens also live overseas, he noted.

The number of Singaporeans residing abroad has climbed 24 per cent in the past 10 years. The latest population statistics show 213,400 Singaporeans lived overseas last year, compared with 172,000 in 2007. Since the 213,400 are “Singaporeans with a registered foreign address” – does it mean that those who have kept their local address are not counted?

Why can’t the ComCare annual report just disclose the average amount of monthly financial assistance per household? Looking at the above statistics – do you agree with “With You For You For Singapore”?

MINISTER LIM REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON RETRENCHMENT BREAKDOWN

Despite being confronted by Mr Giam’s questions in Parliament, Minister Lim chose to continue to evade giving any direct replies. The Minister can avoid answering just one question on the breakdown of the retrenched residents. Can he possibly avoid answering altogether the following six questions on the labour statistics? In the unlikely event that the Minister cannot answer all six questions at all – then what answer to you think Singaporeans may like to give to him?
