With increasing life expectancy and the rise in the median age of Singapore’s resident population, Singaporeans are growing older rapidly in absolute numbers. Our increasing longevity demands that we relook policies on several fronts, including the total fertility rate, immigration, environment, taxes and workforce related issues.
The National Solidarity Party (NSP) also wants to look at the effects of the increasing life expectancy of citizens on core Singaporean values.
We seek the views of the general public who are citizens of Singapore to help us in crafting this paper, ‘My Singapore: Identity, Population and Manpower’.
The objective of this paper is to harness ideas and perspectives from the public that will better enable NSP to craft strategies, calibrations and recommendations for Singapore’s population policies that reflect the real needs of Singaporeans. The paper will look at the kind of shifts that are needed in our policies, taking into account the core concerns, values and attitudes of Singaporeans. We hope to make recommendations that will better enable Singapore to build a socially diverse, vibrant and strongly bonded population, with a good living environment, wage growth and a better quality of life.
The paper will be submitted to the Government of Singapore. We warmly invite you to share your views by filling in the questionnaire here. All personal information provided by you will be kept strictly confidential.
You may download the questionnaire here (http://pdfcast.org/pdf/singapore-identity-identity-population-and-manpower), and once completed, you may send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternately, you can complete the survey via the form below.
NSP will also be holding face-to-face focus group discussions with members of the public who are Singapore citizens to explore how you feel about these issues in-depth. If you would like to participate in these face-to-face discussions, please email us at email@example.com.
