Improving lives of Singaporeans is government's constant goal, says PM Lee
Even as Singapore undergoes a major transition, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong says the government's goal remains constant - to improve the lives of Singaporeans.
And an important strategy in is to develop better workers and create better jobs.
This, Mr Lee said, is the only sustainable way to raise wages.
The Prime Minister made these key points in his annual May Day message today.
Mr Lee said the government is investing heavily to upgrade workers' skills.
It is also creating better jobs, raising productivity, attracting high quality investments and expanding Singapore's export markets.
However Mr Lee added that developing better workers and creating better jobs is a collective responsibility.
The Prime Minister also paid tribute to members of the Pioneer Generation who overcame long odds to set Singapore on the path to development.
He urged Singaporeans to honour them, by upholding their spirit, building on their achievements, and creating an even better Singapore.
Mr Lee also wished all Singaporeans a Happy May Day.
