Even as the world inches closer to finding viable Covid-19 vaccines, like those from Pfizer and Moderna, it will take several years to recover from the pandemic.

And the world will not be what we know it to be in the new normal.

This was stressed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Thursday (Nov 19) during a session on the future of global growth at a virtual event associated with the Apec grouping.

PM Lee also spoke on the government's support for jobs and businesses, and urged employers to take care of their workers.
