Timely warning against xenophobia indeed


I COMMEND Ms Estella Young for her letter ("Timely reminder to keep S'pore open"; Wednesday).

No doubt there has been a degree of xenophobia in Singapore that was unseen before.

Ms Young is right to urge the Government and other organisations to withstand the pressure from certain quarters to make short-term decisions that ultimately compromise our future.
