  21. 21. Problems faced in modern day Singapore<br />PRC Employees<br />Despite having lower qualifications or inferior degrees to locals, they are preferred to local employees due to<br />Lower salary they demand<br />The absence of national service obligations<br />Victor Seit<br />
  22. 22. Problems faced in modern day Singapore<br />Foreign Athletes<br />The use of many foreign athletes both in the national team and school teams.<br />Prevents local talents from developing and improving as lesser slots are available for local athletes.<br />Scholarships are also awarded to foreign athletes in an attempt to attract them to “settle down” in Singapore. <br />Victor Seit<br />
  23. 23. If no action is taken to help solve the above mentioned problems, assuming the rate of foreigners in Singapore increases according to the rates estimated in the article, it is highly possible that the situation in Singapore will turn ugly as predicted in the article.<br />Conclusion<br />Victor Seit<br />
  24. 24. Give Singaporeans those privileges that are better or equal to that that is available to foreigners coming to Singapore<br /><ul><li>E.g. The government can say that companies are to have a minimum percentile of the work force to be consisting of Singaporeans as a requirement.</li></ul>Result:This will reduce the tension between the Singaporean citizens and any foreign workers or students that comes to Singapore.<br />Issue - Economy<br />Jerry Lye<br />
  25. 25. Singaporean citizens should have better, if not equal, educational benefits than foreigners coming to Singapore to study.<br /><ul><li>E.g. Books and school fees should be complimentary for young infants like those that come from PRC to Singapore for education.
  26. 26. As like jobs in Singapore, schools should have a minimum percentile of students to be required by the governments as Singaporeans, thus limiting the number of foreign students in schools. </li></ul>Result: This will allow more vacancies in the schools for the citizens of Singapore.<br />Issue - Education<br />Jerry Lye<br />
  27. 27. Compensation should be given to citizens of Singapore who join the NS.<br /><ul><li>E.g. The Government should provide an incentive for companies to employ Singaporeans who are obliged to do re-service to compensate for the downfalls.</li></ul>Result: This will increase the employability of Singaporeans who have gone through NS as compared to before when companies consider re-service of a Singaporean to be a loss in productivity.<br />Issue - NS<br />Jerry Lye<br />
  28. 28. Greater focus on local talents in the sports scene.<br />E.g. Setting up more sports schools or encourage schools by giving incentives for students who excel in sports.<br />Result: This matches up benefits that foreign talents are receiving thus bridging the differences between foreign and local talents.<br />Issue - Sports<br />Jerry Lye<br />
