    While the 'mistakes on 20/20' cannot be reversed, did anyone ever raise it before or suddenly this was maxed known?

    No government in the world can run a country with no mistakes. The ruling party has done a great job and we all hope they will improve and be better. When we choose to take on a task, we have to accept the pressure that comes along with it since we have been compensated.

    The only intention they have is to form the government till eternity so that they can serve you forever. They just want to be humble servants to the people of Singapore.... Why then is it so hard to fulfil their wish?

    actually if aging population is a issue and getting young ppl into the country is a solution. this will also boost up the economy as FT need to spend, travel, work, rent / buy house.. in other words it moves the economy otherwise filled with useless old man and women. is it a smart move? or is there hidden agenda?

    problem with the problem is there is no baseline on how to define population in a country. human being per square meter? those rich ppl can buy a big house in Thomson and after work they can go back to their cave.

    At the end of the day, it is all about money. There is no end to our misery, as long as there is no separation of State from Business. Every waking moment of the day, the government simply is thinking of how to get more money for itself. It jolly well knows the people that increasingly becoming intolerant of this atrocious behavior and one day it will get booted out via the vote.

    That said, it becomes desperately urgent now to "make as much hay as possible while the sun is shining in their favor", and also to lay the ground work to preserve its stranglehold. Hence the quickening pace of minting new citizens.

    Asian need to learn more from ANG moh in this area. Very often, things are pushed through just to state a point with real meaning.

    Debate is good and healthy even at home. It shows we are a matured society.

    Finally something that makes sense to me...

    Delay population growth for 5 years: MP

    Hahahaha, funny ... now every morning kena wait long long & squeezed tight tight just to board the mrt to work, once we branded Ayam brand sardines, we are finished! Maybe the ministers should get down from the ivory towers & take the public transport to get a real feel before they make plans like these. Already confessed to lack of foresight & mistake made, now want to go blind & plunge headlong to make bigger mistake

    This makes more sense. And focusing on GDP alone thru influx of migrants is like concentrating on increasing asset size rather than productivity & profitability. We are moving sideways instead of up, & we are growing big & fat instead of lean & strong. And what about the negative impact of outflow of $$$ that's remitted out by all the foreign labour, there seems to be no mention of this anywhere I see.

    Truthfully, I have the least interest to know what will happen in 2030. What I'm more interested in is what measures will be in place to relieve the situation now.

    Are there alternatives to dynamic economy other than increasing population? We have opened casinos, maxed out housing and car prices, proved all forms of tourism revenues, etc. Where can we squeeze money from in the next 20 years.

    This is all well and good but how many policies do we see changed due to feedback? As far as many can see if they put on paper it will happen regardless of feedback.

    This is an easy way out. There is no basis here. During thr early 70s they focus on education then 80s on skill. 90s on industry. Basically. Singaporean not well versed in engineering arts science at all. Everybody want quick result. Now they want instant results. Bring in ppl brings instant benefit to the economy with least capital. The early education focus on industry that once the industrial I'd gone the ppl trained really render useless. Hope to see local build up strong foundation and establish our own quality
