Singapore (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
The “Our Singapore Conversation” (OSC) committee has recently revealed its members, in the spirit of inclusiveness and transparency. The 26-member OSC committee, which includes Singaporeans from all walks of life, will lead the national dialogue on Singapore’s future.
A non-partisan process, the committee members do not represent a specific agenda. Instead, they come from a variety of backgrounds including the private sector, grassroots, unions, as well as voluntary, sports, academia and arts organizations and politics. Matters concerning employment, quality of life and future planning as a nation are expected to be tabled during the dialogue.
Asiabiz Services, a Singapore company setup consultancy, applauds the efforts to formally hold a national dialogue on nationhood on this scale. Commenting further, Mr. James Nuben, Head of Taxation at Asiabiz Services enthused, “The national conversation is timely and crucial given that many opinions have been aired online and through social media platforms. The dialogue represents a formal platform to table concerns with policymakers and in turn, find a way to pivot our policies towards a better, stronger Singapore. For a country that has progressed so quickly at such a fast pace, social teething pains are bound to emerge.”
When asked what he would like to contribute to the conversation, Mr. Nuben added, “Through the national conversation, I hope that we can fruitfully cool the tension between Singaporeans and foreigners by coming up with a win-win situation for both components of our workforce.
On one hand I am positive that EntrePass and Personalized Employment Pass holders are value-added personnel who contribute to Singapore’s dynamism as an economy. On the other hand, I also hope that while we maintain a strategic open door policy to qualified foreign professionals, we will also look to prevent brain drain and instead compel the best and brightest of Singaporeans to keep the republic as their home,” Mr. Nuben affirmed.
