Transitioning will be organising a forum on 29 Dec (Sat) at 2.30pm at NVPC seminar room entitled:-
Do we need a 6-million population?
Our current online poll has strongly indicated that 87% of the 1800 respondents do not approve of a 6-million population in our country.
Hear from our esteemed group of speakers: Dr Vincent Wijey of SDP, Mr Leong Sze Hian – financial wizard, Mr Kumaran Pillay Managing Editor of TOC, Mr Naztyn of NSP who is also an accountant and Corinna Lim current Executive Director of AWARE debate on the issue.
Our Prime Minister has indicated that for Singapore to grow we will be targetting for a population of six million people.
One in three workers here is now a foreigner and the recent PRC Chinese SMRT strike has shown that there is a problem with integration and our unions are also unable to cope with the foreign labour issue.
Our current population is 5.3 million and we are already bursting at the seams with over crowded trains and bottled necked roads.
More seriously, there is no proper blueprint on why the government needs a population of six million people except for the rhetoria of low birth rate and economic growth.
Are we also properly prepared to bring in another 700, 000 people through the immigration channel?
Will there be enough jobs for them? Will Singaporeans be sacrificed again to make way for other foreigners to ply their trade here in the name of population growth?
Transitioning has seen many Singaporeans whose jobs were snatched away from incoming foreign professionals for the past few years.
Will there be enough housing units for these new immigrants?
Will their influx to push up our property market to new high in the near future?
The government will also be releasing a White paper on the population growth and Parliament will open early next year to debate on the issue.
