We must not give the impression that Singapore is turning inwards, and becoming xenophobic and hostile to foreigners. It would be disastrous for us, and it is not who we aspire to be. Instead, we must make it clear to the world that Singapore is determined to stay open, to earn a living for ourselves.
Race relations have come under stress during COVID-19. There have been more racist incidents, which have specifically targeted Indians, both work pass holders & Singaporeans.

These racist incidents remind us how fragile our harmony is. Racial harmony took hard work, sacrifice & wisdom, after our founding fathers resolved to forge one nation from the different races.
Singapore has become one of the few countries in the world where people of different races and faiths live peacefully together. It is a precious and rare achievement, but it is also a delicate balance.
The govt intends to pass specific legislation on Racial Harmony. It will be called the Maintenance of Racial Harmony Act. It will collect together in one place all the Government’s powers to deal with racial issues, but will also incorporate some softer, gentler touches.
Our values and beliefs as a society shift over time – each new generation has its own perspective on racial issues. Therefore, from time to time, we must adjust our policies on race & religion. But we should adjust based on our own needs, not just because of trends abroad – and we should do so with caution.
Mulai November nanti, jururawat Muslim di sektor kesihatan awam akan dibenarkan untuk memakai tudung dengan pakaian seragam mereka, jika mereka mahu. Saya berharap ini akan diterima baik, dengan semangat yang betul oleh semua pihak.
As a country, we have many strengths to be proud of, but our greatest strength is our people. In this moment of crisis, Singaporeans have continued to look ahead, and to pour heart and soul into our hopes and dreams. In ordinary times, we may not realise how strong Singaporeans can be. Now, in the crisis of a generation, we have shown ourselves and the world what Singaporeans can do.
COVID-19 will not be our last crisis. We will be tested again, sometimes severely. Each generation will wonder: Will we survive? Will Singapore prevail? My answer: We’ve done it before, & we’ll do it again. Majulah Singapura!

Got my COVID-19 vaccine booster jab at SGH this morning. If you are offered a booster, please take it. It will reduce your chances of getting seriously ill, or needing ICU care.
Forwarded from People’s Action Party
Our women take centrestage with 2021 being the Year of Celebrating SG Women, and every woman in Singapore must be empowered to live their lives to the fullest potential.

As much as they want to thrive in every aspect of their lives, our women continue to face challenges at home, at work and in the community. Their concerns are real.

Now all of us can do something to encourage, support and uplift the women around us. Every action counts.

#ActionForHer is our invitation for YOU to stand with our women in Singapore.

What is one action you will take for her? She could be your mother, your wife, your colleague, your sister, your friend, your daughter.
