SINGAPORE - Attracting people into the public service today is harder than it was decades ago, as Singaporeans are increasingly drawn to opportunities abroad, and to global companies and organisations, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said on Tuesday.

But the public service continues to need committed and talented people, and scholarships are an important way to draw them in, he added.

Mr Teo, who is in charge of the civil service, was addressing 82 recipients of this year's Public Service Commission (PSC) scholarships at an award ceremony at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel.

The recipients included two who received the PSC masters scholarship.
