of mr. chiam see tong on the singapore population white paper

I am Chiam See Tong, Secretary General of the Singapore People's Party. I am apalled that PAP targets to increase Singapore's population from 5.3 million to 6.9 million. This 6.9 million is a huge figure. In fact surpassing Scandinavian countries such as Denmark, Norway and Finland.

When Singapore became independent in 1965. The PAP policy was to have growth at all costs. For that they needed to import a lot of foreign workers. And that did not prove very popular with local workers.

In the second phase, it was the same policy. Continue with importing foreign workers. And that did not prove popular with the people of Singapore. Because many of the jobs that were held by Singaporeans were taken away by foreigners. Especially the PMET jobs.

Now we have the white paper of population, and that really shocked many of us. Can you imagine a small island of Singapore with 6.9 million people?
