Continued Social Integration During Challenging Times

With the euphoria and dust of Singapore's General Elections 2020 (GE2020) over, the key take-away surrounding inbound Singapore immigration in our opinion is this :

 

1) Much needs to be done to balance foreign talent requirements, particularly, PMETs

2) Foreign Talent continues to remain critical to complement the local talent pool

3) Foreign Talent here must make attempts to integrate into society wholeheartedly

 

Post GE2020, we have received increased inquiries from foreigners looking to time their Singapore PR / Citizenship applications. While many are familiar with the documentation and processes, they are also concerned about the lack in Social Integration opportunities that can help bolster their application.

 

Are there still available social integration opportunities amidst this pandemic?

 

Immigration@SG LLP - How We Set Ourselves Apart from Competition?


Since the Covid-19 virus hit our shores in early 2020, we have observed increased inquiries from foreigners. This includes Singapore work pass holders already working in Singapore, existing Singapore PRs and Citizens who are looking to sponsor their loved ones, as well as investors / business owners looking to set up operations in Singapore for the first time, with the objective of securing PR and possible Citizenship in the future.

Singapore Retains World’s Most Competitive Economy Position

 

Singapore has retained the top spot as the World's most competitive economy in the latest edition of the Institute for Management Development's (IMD) World Competitiveness Ranking. This comes amid the flurry of uncertainties plaguing businesses and whole economies globally, due to Covid-19.

The Global Competitiveness Report evaluates an annual list of 63 economies, which analyses their ability to generate prosperity. Making up the top five after Singapore were Denmark, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Hong Kong - which economists duly noted as illustrating the strength and resilience of many small economies, rather than a single major player in dealing with the pandemic.

IMD noted that the factors behind Singapore's success include its:

1) Strong economic performance (robust international trade and investment)
2) Progressive and inclusive Employment and Labour market measures
3) Relative ease of setting up business
4) Availability of skilled labour
5) Cutting-edge technological infrastructure

IMD also pointed out that it is key to note that Singapore's stable and quality education system also played key roles in the outcome of the rankings. Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing, speaking at an Enterprise Singapore event on Tuesday, said it was good to see that Singapore has managed to maintain its top position in overall global competitiveness. He however warned that Singapore must not be complacent, considering the volatility of the situation with Covid-19.
