Govt doing 'too much and too little', say youth
Meritocracy also discussed by 60 at the forum with Lawrence Wong
The Government is doing both too much and too little, young Singaporeans at a forum told Senior Minister of State for Education and Information, Communications and the Arts Lawrence Wong on Thursday night.
The 60 young people aged 19 to 35 were also divided on whether Singapore's meritocratic system should concentrate more on providing equal opportunities or ensuring equal outcomes.
Their views came thick and fast at the forum organised by the four self-help groups and the Young Sikh Association, and supported by the National Youth Council (NYC).
Though it was not an official session under the Our Singapore Conversation umbrella, the participants saw the discussion as their ground-up contribution to the national conversation.
