Chairman of government feedback channel, REACH, Dr Amy Khor, says she is heartened that many Singaporeans have expressed confidence in the new way forward set out in the National Day Rally on Sunday. 

She said many of them felt it showed that the government is truly listening to the concerns on the ground.

Dr Khor said this year's Rally marked a strategic shift.

It shows that the government values every Singaporean, and gives assurance that they will not face their challenges alone. 

She was speaking at the opening of a public forum on the National Day Rally held last night.

The participants focused on the three major themes of housing, healthcare and education brought up in the Rally.

Concerns about the affordability of the new MediShield Life, and the challenges of implementing a proposed banding system for PSLE results were put up for discussion.
