 Lee Hsien Loong

PM said the new policies in housing, healthcare and education are significant shifts, and part of our new way forward.

But he emphasised that Government’s core purpose has not changed, and that is to ensure every Singaporean shares in the nation’s progress, to support the less fortunate and vulnerable, to create opportunities for Singaporeans to do their best, and to build a stronger Singapore.

It will take some time to work out policies and programmes to realise the new balance between Government, Community and Individual, and Government will take further steps as we gain experience.

PM stressed that the new strategic direction will take us down a different road from the one that has brought us this far. There is no turning back, PM said, but he believes this is the right thing to do given the changes in Singapore and the world. “We proceed. But let me sound a caution: All this is not without risk.” Hence, we have to tread carefully, and beware the pitfalls.
