SINGAPORE – Singapore continues to value foreign contributions, and will not change its approach to running the economy, said Health Minister Ong Ye Kung on Friday (Aug 20).
This means it still welcomes, facilitates and protects foreign investments. It will also continue to complement its local workforce with foreign talent, and work to fortify and expand its network of free trade agreements, he said.
“We will continue to value the technology and expertise the world can offer us. We will persist in learning from everyone,” Mr Ong added.
He was addressing members of the European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham) in Singapore in a speech in which he assured his audience of the Republic’s continued commitment to staying open to the world.
