Policy changes coming up: Heng Swee Keat
KEY concerns raised by 47,000 people who took part in the year-long Our Singapore Conversation exercise will see a "substantive" Government response, including a change to the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).
The policy changes will centre on housing, healthcare and education, issues that kept cropping up when citizens came together in over 660 sessions, to talk about the future Singapore they wanted to see.
This was revealed by Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, who heads the mass engagement exercise, at a press conference on Tuesday to mark the end of the year-long national conversation.
He launched a newsletter, titled Reflections, that captures the voices and themes of the mass engagement exercise. 60,000 copies will be distributed to the public and it has been posted online at www.oursgconversation.sg/reflections.
