What is #MOMchats about?

"The Future in Singapore – Our Jobs and Aspirations"

#MOMchats townhall is a series of public engagement efforts by the Ministry of Manpower to reach out to our stakeholders as well as encourage Singaporeans to be involved in shaping our manpower policies.

The last session was held on 22 October 2013 (Tuesday), in partnership with REACH’s series of “Kopi Talk" sessions. Our Singaporean undergraduates joined Acting Minister for Manpower Mr Tan Chuan-Jin at Nanyang Technological University to discuss “The Future in Singapore – Our Jobs and Aspirations." The participants discussed and exchanged views on issues which are close to their hearts – such as job market expectations, overall employment issues and the attitudes and aptitudes needed to succeed in today’s competitive working environment.
