Singapore Aims To Be Global Innovation Lab
The key to Singapore staying relevant in the global economy is how it can be an innovation laboratory for the world, and this will be looked into in plans to chart the future direction of Singapore’s economy, said Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat.
At the same time, it must also create value that can be shared with all Singaporeans.
“In our early days, we were a trading emporium. We then became a first world oasis in this region. Let us strive to be an innovation lab for the world, where the best ideas from around the world can be realised,” Mr Heng told Parliament on Friday.
