This complex goal is a multifaceted one, including creating a just and fair meritocracy, lifting vulnerable socioeconomic groups, ensuring retirement adequacy, increasing labour market mobility, tackling environmental problems, empowering people through education and training, promoting financial freedom, enhancing access to healthcare, and more. In this year’s Singapore Economic Policy Forum, speakers will discuss some of Singapore’s strategies and endeavors towards greater social good. As we advance towards a more compassionate and inclusive economy, the forum serves to provide understanding, discourse, and insights into our social responsibilities in the years to come.
