SINGAPORE - The elderly will soon have more chances to ask questions about the Pioneer Generation Package in person at official booths.

More booths manned by public servants and volunteers will be set up in places frequented by many seniors, said its taskforce co-chair Amy Khor on Thursday.

"We are planning to organise more of such listening points for the package, for instance, where the Malay-speaking community frequents, or the Tamil-speaking community, or in other areas...like Chinatown," said Dr Khor, who is also Senior Minister of State for Health and chairman of the government feedback unit Reach.

She was speaking to reporters at the first such "listening point" located opposite the popular Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho temple on Waterloo Street near Bugis.
