Singapore should improve prudently: PM Lee
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said the national conversation should be balanced and to improve Singapore prudently, one day after the committee was unveiled.
He said that it is not an exercise in culling sacred cows, although managing the expectations of Singaporeans will be a challenge.
"As I used to say, we leave no stone unturned. But some stones, after we look at them, the original place was quite nice, and we put them back," he said, in an interview with Singapore media on the last day of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) leaders' summit.
His remarks come after Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said on Saturday that the national conversation was not a "culling session" for sacred cow policies.
