SINGAPORE: The government and its tripartite partners will ensure that there will be jobs, both in number and quality, in Singapore, assured NTUC Secretary-General Lim Swee Say in the labour movement's National Day message on Saturday (Aug 2).

He also said that a higher re-employment age and a more progressive wage ladder are some of the ways to improve Singapore's workforce.

"But looking ahead, we have to continue to update our competitive strategy because of keen competition for jobs and investment,” Mr Lim added.

Mr Lim was speaking at the first of NTUC's National Day Observance Ceremonies on Saturday evening.

Each year, NTUC, together with its community and industry partners, such as affiliated unions, associations and unionised companies, hold a series of observance ceremonies to mark the nation's birthday. NTUC said there will be 18 such events this year.  - CNA/xq
