SINGAPORE – Even as the local tech talent pool grows, Singapore has to bring in foreign professionals at mid-to-senior levels to build world-class teams, grow the industry and tackle urgent problems, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Tuesday (Nov 17).
He acknowledged the sense of competition and discomfort that can arise from large numbers of foreigners in the industry, and said Singaporeans have to feel assured that they are fairly treated.
They must see that tech companies are bringing in people with expertise and experience, whom Singaporeans can learn from, he said.
