Annex A: Emerging Themes & Questions

Navigating a Volatile and Complex World
Over the past two years, Singapore rallied as a nation to save lives and livelihoods. We are stepping out from the COVID-19 pandemic with new challenges in a more volatile and complex world –higher inflation, slowing growth, more frequent economic disruption, and greater geopolitical tensions. We need to tackle these challenges and be ready to seize new opportunities.
1.   What are the challenges and opportunities for families/households, workers, and businesses in this more volatile and complex world?
2.   What more can be done to support these groups to identify and seize new opportunities, even amidst greater uncertainties and volatility?
Strengthening our Social Compact
We must continue to strengthen our social compact, where every person feels valued and supported through all seasons and stages of life. We want to partner Singaporeans to care for one another as we prepare for the challenges ahead.
1.   What actions can we take as individuals and as a community, together with the Government, to build a fairer and more inclusive home?
2.   What are some groups that might need more support, and what are their concerns? How can the Government better partner the community to address these concerns?
Building a Resilient Nation
We experienced disruptions in essential supplies at the height of the pandemic, and had to make the necessary adjustments.  When the Ukraine war broke out, we moved quickly to secure our energy needs. When our chicken supplies were disrupted, we brought in new sources of chicken from other countries. We need to build greater resilience so that Singapore can withstand and absorb external shocks and overcome disruptions.
1.   How can individuals, households, and businesses contribute to a more resilient Singapore?
2.   How can the Government support these groups in their efforts?
