Unwrapped: Will the Forward Singapore Roadmap actually engage Singaporeans?

  • Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong launched Forward Singapore this week as a roadmap for a society that benefits many, not just a few.
  • He wants to engage Singaporeans through the six pillars to understand their concerns and explore trade-offs involved in policy shifts.
  • Yet when it comes to logging down their ideas, some of the online sites only give interested parties a day to do so.
  • Through our weekly series Unwrapped this week, TheHomeGround Asia looks at whether we actually play a part in reviewing and refreshing the country’s social compact.

In our weekly series Unwrapped, TheHomeGround Asia takes a closer look at major stories and happenings that impact Singaporeans. This week we explore the newly launched Forward Singapore initiative.

Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong launched Forward Singapore this week as a roadmap for a society that benefits many, not just a few.

The roadmap involves six key pillars: economy and jobs, education and lifelong learning, health and social support, home and living environment, environmental and fiscal sustainability, and the Singapore identity.

And at its core, DPM Wong stressed the importance of holding onto values and beliefs that have been set out by the country’s founding fathers.

While the Forward Singapore exercise aims to review and refresh the country’s social compact, the team looks at whether it is a reboot of the old template created by the first generation leaders or will the 4G take on a modern spin, taking into account what Singaporeans want and need.
