Concerns over Government's projected foreign manpower needs by 2030


Non-Government Organisations, stakeholders and observers have raised concerns over the Government's projection for more foreign manpower by 2030. 

They wonder if the demand for labour in certain sectors can be met. 

Others say it's not just about the numbers but also whether Singapore can bring in the best quality of foreign manpower. 

Yesterday, the National Population and Talent Division estimated that by 2030, Singapore may need about 150,000 more foreign workers in health care, construction and as maids.
