S'pore conversation: Key challenge is managing expectations
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong says the key challenge for the national conversation on Singapore's future will be that of managing expectations.
He adds that the conversation is also different from the government's previous attempts at engaging Singaporeans.
He says in the Our Singapore Conversation, the government looks at the problems afresh in a new situation, with a new generation and with a new perspective.
Spearheading the national conversation is a 26-member committee, comprising a mix of Cabinet ministers, academics and ordinary Singaporeans like students and a taxi driver.
PM Lee said that in choosing the committee, the government tried to be inclusive.
PM Lee was speaking to Singapore reporters in Vladivostok, Russia where he attended the APEC leaders' meeting.
