Singapore faces water, food and energy security challenges. While we have tackled water security very well, we have not achieved 100 per cent self-sufficiency yet.
We need the same resources to tackle other security issues.
Factory-grown vegetables, as in indoor farming, and laboratory-or factory-grown meat (vegan meat) are now viable.
Singapore should put in more resources to develop high-tech, high-volume automated food production. Imagine a 50-storey building growing vegetables or meat in Singapore.
These are proactive projects which will be key to our survival and may even transform Singapore into a food-exporting country.
Government foresight in setting directions and schemes is important.
