Bringing Singaporeans Home

Vivian Balakrishnan

In a recent interview, Vivian Balakrishnan (VB) talked about bringing Singaporeans back home and grow local talents for our Smart Nation efforts lalala and more lalala…

Vivi is one of the more clever talking pap ministar and he said all the politically correct things so eloquently during that CNA interview, however, I am not that hopeful. Let me explain.

Singapore is a very young nation without any deep rootedness of its people to this place and there is one very fundamental aspect of our nation building efforts that the pap government has grossly neglected over the decades and that is to deeply and consciously ingrained in our people, especially our primary and secondary level students the sense of patriotism and sense of duty and service back to our country and our people.
Educating the head without educating the heart is failed education and under the pap government, we have but produced failed education over many years. Period! In our hours of need, our people are most likely to fail us.

Under the pap government, everything in Singapore is about money. That mentality expoused at very high level from the late MM’s what’s wrong with collecting more money to Goh Chok Tong’s people who make under $500,000/ annually are mediocre etc.

When even the pap ministers demanded to be paid a salary close to what top earners make in the private sector, I ask how realistic are we to expect Singaporeans who are doing well overseas to give up their careers and rally to the government’s call to return? I suspect that Vivi could even be sniggering in his heart regarding what he said in that interview.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of young mainland Chinese professionals and PhD graduates return home after their studies from western universities willingly and with much pleasure because they want to be a part towards the contributing and building of a modern and prosperous China even though western grass maybe greener.

If I were a young man working overseas and doing well, I would laugh at VB’s clever and so politically correct rhetoric and if my children are doing well overseas, I would not encourage them to return either.
Singapore and Singaporeans without a Lee Kuan Yew is only beginning to experience the ills of a weak government who knows only the price of everything and the value of nothing. It will be a long and mercenary night.

Think.

  • PAP CLOSE DOWN:

    This diaspora has been happening for decades. Mant left because of stop at two, 2nd language, grdauate mother etc. Now many more will go because of FTs.

    Why would citizens stay and watch foreigners with inferioir qualifications become their bosses or displace them?

    And Spore never considered dual citizenship? The FTs they are welcoming have this option.

  • Harder Truths:

    This bullshit initiative was also carried out in 1980′s, when President Devan Nair went all over Asia to call back very talented $G professionals who were working as far away as Japan in top class jobs.

    I do not know how many took up his offer and promise of a changed $G that would put them at the cutting edge of a new economy. The bitter fact is these $G citizens who did come back were shunned and made to look like fools, with low level jobs in industry competing against FT.

    This kind of bullshit will not work again. People who leave $G will leave for good. They know how to succeed in the real world and do not need handouts from never-had-a-real-job parasites.

    Not Mandatory but Compulsory [with Authority enforcement]? and he said “Levels of granularity and to enhance the level of protection for the people concerned.” but the token is not characterized for the functions and scan at only 5 minutes interval.?

    That to me is credibility down the drain. I don’t need a pattern style talking minister. I need a minister to be serving the People truthfully.

    I’ll rather trust north korean Kim he hosted in Singapore better.

    Yea, we need set up news media overseas to engaged successful overseas Singaporeans and to brainwash them. Keep repeating the same lies to them, they would finally believe and return home. This is exactly what the CCP is doing.

    Speaking to the media, Wong said, “I think the Chief Minister is looking at a forward-looking plan to transform the economy of [the regions] surrounding Chennai and, of course, Tamil Nadu. Singapore wants to be part of this process.”

    He revealed that between 2018 and now, Singapore has, in fact, invested about $1 billion in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. He also told Indian media that the relevant agencies in Singapore will be reaching out to the Indian authorities for discussions regarding India’s travel bubble proposal to establish travel between both countries.

    Vivi says attracting SG TALENTS back?
    Arent there already Sg Talents here to do the job?
    Many have been forcefully sidelined.
    Even Tan Min Liang received HELP from a FOREOGN investor even as TEMA$ICK HO-ding$ support Foreign companies like their failing banks.

    Not a few Sg Talents were turned away by TH years ago and some flocked to sell their ideas to Silicon Valley n elsewhere?
    Now, these REJECTED SG TALENTS have make it good, VIVI thinks he can lure them back to help the $AME GAHmen that refused to help them and forcing them to seek help elsewhere?
    These sgs have settled abroad where they were recpgnised.
    Vivi thinks he can apply CHINESE GOVT STYLE of attracting chinese talents back home?
    Come on, those CHINA TALENTS went abroad becos Giant Panda was still sleeping and their talents coiln not be applied approoriately in China then.

    Thats why chinese talents flock back home as
    they left for different REASON as that of our rejected SG TALENTS.
    ANOTHER HURDLE is the vast market availed to them unlike here?

    The PAP GOVT is like a lousy corporation hiring and firing PEOPLE as and when they fancy?!!!

    As a citizen, bona fide one at that, i have been made to feel this way.
    So too many good n loyal sgs, i dare believe.

    I came back based on what the PAP had been selling online and through MSM. After I came back, I realised it was just marketing by PAP to bluff Singaporeans.

    1. Went for interviews, mostly by foreigners who rejected me but when I look at their linkedin, they are mostly inferior PMETS. Of course, they gave many reasons but I found out they hire their own skin.

    2. 1 manager job I applied, 1600 applicants, I was shortlisted amongst the top 20. 80% of the applicants are foreigners, a lot are PRs or new citizens.

    3. Days turned into week, week into months….

    Dont believe in PAP BS please, they are not real in wanting locals…. they are importing and grooming the third world foreigners to rule Singapore and manage unhappy Singaporeans.

  • Please don't joke!:

    Yes, it’s all about money! Bringing Singaporeans Home? Is Vivian Balakrishnan trying to be a jester?

    Vivian, you and your Government has just pissed off a whole lot of young oversea Singaporeans by forcing them to join your compulsory money-grabbing insurance scheme called “CareShield Life”. Why would they need such an insurance scheme when they would have taken up insurance cover in their host countries? There is nothing wrong for the Government to want to make money but this high-handed approach is repulsive!

    So you want to bring Singaporeans home …. but you make it so difficult for them to vote in every General Election like they are 2nd class citizens. I know because I am one of them!

    No point spending millions every year on the “Singapore Global Network” project when you cannot get the fundamentals correct. There was a time when Overseas Singaporeans were very proud to sing the praises of their motherland to their hosts and foreign friends but today I sense a growing indifference. Paying lip service is not good enough, understanding this group is more important.

  • What A Big Joke:

    We have brought many Indian FT to work in Singapore. Recently, Singapore is trying to sell to the Indian Government on how to make their city smart. However, they are using the Indian FT to do the job.

    They think the Indian leaders are stupid like them. What a big clown the PAP leaders are.

  • PAP Helping FTs Get Rich:

    The PAP government is helping the FTs to get very rich. Eg some Malaysians working in Singapore owns as many as six landed properties and Condos in Johor Bahru. Same thing with the Pinoys and Indians who own land as well as properties in their own countries.

    However for the local Singaporeans, the cost of living is so high that many of them are struggling to put food on the table.

    Pinky however has taken good care of the Ministers, the top civil servants and the PAP cronies by paying them millions of dollars of salaries. These Ministers can even afford to buy a landed property or condo unit every year with their very high salaries and bonuses.

    Do you still want the PAP to be our government ? Wake up, don’t be stupid.

    1. Reduce and remove all the fake foreign “talents”
    2. Pay us what we are getting overseas with all the perks
    3. Remove POFMA immediately
    4. Make the law and court judgement equal, not one for the connected, one for the rich and one for others.
    5. Revert back to the original intention of the CPF, I.e. for retirement purpose only and remove the bullshit minimum sum scheme.
    6. Apportion a bigger percentage of the budget for social purposes, eg. housing, healthcare and education
    7. Remove nepotism from governance
    8. Don’t con the population by introducing new laws for the ridiculous means, like the (s)elected President
    9. Make sure the all Singaporean are paid to equate this high cost of living
    10. Transparency! Transparency! Transparency in governance!!!!

    If Singapore can make sure that local-born Singaporeans now in Singapore has good opportunities, high-pay, high rank, high status, globetrotter opportunities, then surely Singaporeans abroad can see and notice.

    Do you expect people to give up good opportunities and long-term career prospects at HQs of MNCs, just to eat fried kway teow? How many MNCs have Global HQ in Singapore?

    But the money-creators can allocate funds to pro-Israel Singaporean Fund Managers, who then invest in companies with pro-Israel Singaporean CEO/CFO.

    SINGAPORE — Personal information from 1.1 million RedMart accounts was stolen from e-commerce platform Lazada and sold online in a data breach.

    A Lazada spokesperson confirmed this to CNA on Friday (Oct 30).

    STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

    CNA had earlier come across an online forum which was purportedly selling personal data from various e-commerce sites around the world, including Lazada.

    The site claimed to have information like names, phone numbers and partial credit card numbers from about 1.1 million users.

    STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

    “Our cybersecurity team discovered an individual claiming to be in possession of a RedMart customer database taken from a legacy RedMart system no longer in use by the company,” a spokesperson from Lazada said in a statement referring to the online supermarket platform it acquired in 2016.

    Lazada added the information stolen was last updated in March 2019, and the affected RedMart-only database is not linked to any Lazada database.

    “This RedMart-only information is more than 18 months out of date and not linked to any Lazada database. The user information that was illegally accessed include names, phone numbers, email and mailing addresses, encrypted passwords and partial credit card numbers. We have taken immediate action to block unauthorised access to the database.”

    Lazada is currently investigating the data breach, and has informed the Personal Data Protection Commission of the breach.

    “We have taken immediate action to block unauthorised access to the database,” the Lazada spokesperson said.

    Response : Smart Nation? See all those accounts in Lazada being hacked and stolen with their partial credit card number? All these most likely has a possibility of internal job by those evil women wing scammers. Wait till Singapore go full digital banking system and all the money all siphon off easily through digital banking. Lose tons of billions in investments and digital bank has no money? Never mind, just ask programmer to add some ten zeros in after all nobody check to solve problem. Hard to detect fraud in digital banking if it is internal jobs?
