Remember foreign workers this National Day

As Singaporeans celebrate National Day next month, they must not forget foreign workers' contributions to the country.

Our comfortable homes, convenient public transport and clean neighbourhoods are the result of the hard work rendered by workers from various countries.

Without these foreigners, Singapore could not have been what it is today.

As they have played a pivotal role in Singapore's success, they deserve some form of appreciation and recognition.

The National Day Parade executive committee would do well to involve foreign workers in this annual celebration, such as having them form a parade contingent, with their own national costumes and dances.

Another suggestion is to allot some tickets for them to attend the parade on National Day, so that when they return to their countries, they can proudly reflect on their efforts in making Singapore a better place in which to live, study and work.
