    Singapore needs to remain open: DPM Teo


    Photos 1 of 1
    SINGAPORE: Singapore needs to remain open and to welcome diversity, even as it grapples with the challenges brought about by globalisation, technology and extremism, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said.

    Speaking at the Community Engagement Programme (CEP) dialogue on Saturday morning, he said these three driving forces can have a double-edged impact on Singapore's social cohesion.

    The CEP is a national crisis response network of community, business and youth leaders coordinated by the Home Affairs Ministry.

    Into its seventh year, the annual CEP dialogue saw the participation of some 600 community leaders and several ministers including Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, Mr Chan Chun Sing, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin and Mr Lim Swee Say.

    On globalisation, Mr Teo said more Singaporeans are now living overseas, and Singapore is also becoming more cosmopolitan with people from many different countries calling it home.

    With many different races and religions living close together in a small, dense city like Singapore, he said differences between the various groups can develop easily into fissures and weaken the country's unity.

    Hence, Mr Teo said Singapore needs to pay extra attention to facilitating the new immigrants who are ready to sink roots here, so that they integrate into society more quickly.

    He also urged Singaporeans to do their part to make newcomers feel welcome, and to help them imbibe the values that have made Singapore strong as a society.

    On technology, Mr Teo highlighted how the Internet and social media can help bring people together, but it can also disrupt social order and harmony when used maliciously.

    He said while social media can mobilise active citizens for positive change, the Internet and the anonymity it affords can also embolden people and encourage extreme views.

    "Anonymity on the Internet emboldens people, encouraging them to take on more extreme views than they might otherwise," Mr Teo said.

    "The Internet also amplifies the extreme views, even though they might be in the minority, and virtual mobs form to cheer or jeer, which only help to accentuate the differences, polarise and inflame emotions further."

    Mr Teo said international terrorism and violent extremism continue to be threats to the world, including Singapore, which remains a target for terrorists.

    But the threat of extremism can also help to rally people together in the fight against terror.

    He added that strong community partnerships can help Singapore reduce the opportunities for extremism to take hold of groups or individuals, and to deal with and withstand the divisive effects that violent extremism can wreak on a multi-racial and multi-religious society.

    In view of these driving forces that can have a profound impact on Singapore's national solidarity and social cohesion, Mr Teo said the country's community engagement efforts are even more important today, and in the future.

    People's Association Integration Council to start work from July


    Photos 1 of 1
    SINGAPORE: The newly-formed People's Association Integration Council will have 15 members, with one representative from each Group Representation Constituency.

    The council aims to provide greater focus and strategic direction in
    Singapore's efforts in integrating new immigrants.

    Chaired by MP for Marine Parade GRC, Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef, the council will start work from July.

    Unveiling the council's new logo at the Integration Carnival on Saturday, Second Minister for Home Affairs Mr S Iswaran stressed that integration is a two-way process.

    "Integration requires persistence and perseverance. It takes much time and effort to reach out to and engage the different members of our community. Through regular and meaningful interactions, that's how we are better able to understand each other's cultures," said Mr Iswaran.

    Chairman of the People's Association Integration Council Fatimah Lateef spoke on some of her plans to help residents and new immigrants integrate better.

    "One of this will actually be the fasting month (July 20 to August 18), which is coming up. Because the Geylang Serai bazaar is held at our constituency in Geylang Serai, I was thinking of opening it up to the INC level, at the national level, and probably do a breaking of fast session. And then let them try the local cuisine, the Malay cuisine and also partake in the Malay culture in that area," she said.

    Population Paper has the fundamentals wrong


    by Choo Zheng Xi
    inSing.com - 1 day 3 hrs 0 seconds ago

    (Pic / Wikimedia)
    So this is the new normal?
    Just when we thought our Government had heard the call of Singaporeans to moderate the flow of immigration, the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD), under the purview of Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, seems bent on convincing us of our folly with a policy paper (an “Occasional Paper”) heavily biased in favour of an ever-more open-door policy.
    Simply put, the Occasional Paper states that Singapore’s Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is unsustainably low, and that the solution to demographic decay is immigration.
    More precisely, immigration at a rate of 25,000 new citizens a year.
    First, two caveats: the current Occasional Paper lays the groundwork for a more definitive “White Paper” at the end of this year. The Occasional Paper is not definitive, leaving open the possibility of its recommendations being altered in the “White Paper”, depending on the severity of a potential public backlash.
    Also, it is important to note that increasing citizen numbers, while it could entail the loosening of current citizenship requirements, does not necessarily mean an increase in the absolute population size.
    Regardless, this Occasional Paper will be crucial in framing the debate the government would like to have.
    To put the “25,000” figure in perspective, there were 17,334 new citizens in 2007, 20,513 new citizens in 2008, 19,928 new citizens in 2009, and 18,758 new citizens in 2010.
    Remember, these are the current inflows at which Singaporeans are saying: “enough, slow down!”
    The sound of silence
    What might be more alarming than what the Occasional Paper says is what it doesn’t.
    The immigration projections in the Occasional Paper are based on the assumption that our TFR stays at 1.2. So, on the assumption that TFR stays constant, the number 25,000 is cited as sufficient to stem the tide of an ageing population.
    There is no estimate of how many more new citizens a year we will have to admit if our TFR continues to deteriorate at the rate it has been for the last few decades.
    Which begs the question: why has Singapore’s TFR fallen to such abysmal levels?
    The Occasional Paper would have you believe this is no fault of the government, and that increasing affluence and prudent family planning is the source of this. It cites similar declines in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan.
    While this certainly tells part of the story, what is equally to blame is the government's nonchalance in its efforts to staunch the TFR decline.
    The most substantive policy the paper is able to point to is the “Marriage and Parenthood package” introduced in 2001. That year, the government threw $500 million at the problem, in 2004 it tossed in $800 million, and this was doubled again to $1.6 billion in 2008.
    It’s more than a little strange that the government has not realized that perhaps throwing money at the TFR problem is not the solution.
    Starting at the beginning
    Seeking the root causes of the population decline begins with understanding why couples have children. Or, in Singapore’s case, why couples choose not to.
    The reasons are legion.
    For starters, what sane parent-to-be wants to bring up a child who is going to have to face the rigours of one of the most competitive and stressful education systems in the world, the scholastic equivalent of the Hunger Games?
    Who, stuck on the treadmill of economic survival, has time to take a breather to nurture the romances that form the building blocks of stable family units?
    And perhaps it is here that the recent debate on income inequality becomes relevant: if you belong a low income group in Singapore, how are you going to afford to have children? Would you want to run the risk of your children falling into the same wage rut as you?
    Ironically, the government’s “solution” of an open-door immigration policy could be part of the reason Singaporeans don’t feel that the conditions are right to have children.
    Much of the economic hardship of today, rightly or wrongly, has been blamed on the government’s indiscriminate immigration policies. They are believed to have caused rising property prices, increased competition in the workforce, and an infrastructure buckling under the weight of the deluge.
    While keeping in mind the caveat that increasing citizen numbers does not necessarily equate to increasing population growth, to chart a course towards looser citizenship requirements before our ongoing national debate on the value of a pink IC is concluded comes across as reckless.
    A more practical implication is this: young Singaporean couples are already marrying later and having less children, put off by increasing lengths of mortgage debt servicing and waiting times for HDBs.
    With the dramatic increase in citizenship and people eligible to own public housing, this problem is likely to get worse.
    If native Singaporeans feel increasingly disinclined to have babies, and the government’s only solution is to replace Singaporeans by evermore desperately giving out citizenship to foreigners, this all looks a bit like a race to the bottom.
    There aren’t any simple answers to staunching the demographic bleeding, but one thing is clear enough: choosing the easy way out by importing citizens is as simplistic and silly an idea as throwing money at couples and expecting them to procreate.
    The path to a better answer starts with answering a more fundamental question: how do we create a society nurturing, accepting, and equal enough that we would feel safe introducing a new life into it?

    Walk the streets. I am seeing a lot of Singaporeans voicing anger outright and some of it is not a healthy way. In fact, the current incompetent in PAP have a way of starting and stoking fires. They seem not to understand nor have respect for the people. Everyday, the anger level is going up. And it is showing in faces. People are becoming vocal. Incompetent PAP members believe that they will will once anonymity is taken away on the internet and they can charge people and remove them from the pool of dissenters. They may find that they will need maybe need to import more FTs as the population they were supposed to serve are in mental and penitentiary institutions. I do not why insignificant flies in positions of power are behaving like gods when they are as mortal if not more mortal than us.

    PAP keep saying Singaporeans need to do this, Singaporeans need to do that for foreigners. What are the foreigners doing for Singaporeans? PAP did not tell the foreigners - not even once that I can recall - what they need to do for Singsporeans. Seem that they just work and live here are doing Singaporeans a big favour already!

    Lee Snr must have been fidgety when he saw how the Merlion was struck on the head as a bad omen. It meant PAP will destroy the island eventually.

    PAP is the most traitorous political party in this world.

    Yes, foreigners should replace the ministers. Then it will be fairer for the populace.

    And it seems to be spreading across all ages. Saw one well-dressed lao uncle scolding a pair of PRCs 'brainless' for not giving up their seats to him in an overcrowded train.

    Foreigners' job is to replace SGs quickly before the next GE, so that they can 'out-vote' SGs.
