新加坡,6月20日(新华社)——新加坡副总理兼财政部长Heng Swee Keat周六晚表示,新加坡将继续致力于商品、服务、资本、数据、思想和人才的自由流动。


他在讲话中概述了政府将帮助企业和工人在后covid时代繁荣发展的三种方式。


“在后covid时代,世界变得更加动荡不安,无论世界其他地方做什么,我们都将坚持寻找新的渠道来实现这些流动,特别是连接世界各地关键的供应线。”


他说,新加坡必须始终保持一个开放的贸易国,并补充说,“如果我们关闭,我们就完蛋了。”


其次,他说,新加坡必须继续投资基础设施,即使这意味着推迟一些项目。


他指出,这一点很重要,因为“这些项目让我们与世界保持联系,让新加坡境内的旅行更快捷、更愉快,并为我们所有人提供美丽的家园”。


第三,新加坡必须继续投资于研究和创新,以增强其竞争力。


他宣布,随着新加坡敲定未来五年的研发计划,200亿新元(约140亿美元)将用于支持高影响领域的基础和应用研究,如健康和生物医学科学、气候变化和人工智能。


在六次有关新冠肺炎疫情后新加坡未来的全国广播中,恒是最后一位发言人。


在他看来,目前最紧迫的任务是创造就业,政府正努力保住现有的就业岗位,并尽可能多地创造新的就业岗位。


他说,全国就业委员会已经开始监督根据SGUnited就业和技能方案创造的10万个就业和培训机会。


他说,新加坡不仅将克服这场危机,而且将从这场危机中崛起,成为一个更加强大的经济体、社会和人民。

 

SINGAPORE, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Singapore will remain committed to the free flow of goods, services, capital, data, ideas and talent, said Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat Saturday evening.

He made the remarks while outlining three ways that the government will help businesses and workers thrive in the post-COVID world.

"In a more fractious post-COVID world, whatever the rest of the world does, we will persist to finding new links to enable these flows, especially in connecting critical supply lines around the world.

Singapore must always remain an open, trading nation, he said, adding that "we are finished if we close up."

Second, Singapore must continue to invest in its infrastructure even if it means delaying some projects, he said.

It is important because "such projects keep us connected to the world, makes travelling within Singapore faster and more pleasant, and gives us all beautiful homes", he noted.

Thirdly, Singapore must continue to invest in research and innovation to sharpen its competitiveness.

Heng announced that as Singapore finalizes its R&D plan for the next five years, 20 billion Singapore dollars (about 14 billion U.S. dollars ) will be set aside to support basic and applied research in high impact areas, such as health and biomedical sciences, climate change, and artificial intelligence.

Heng is the last speaker in the six national broadcasts on Singapore's future after COVID-19.

According to him, the most urgent task now is jobs, and the government is trying hard to preserve current jobs and creating as many new jobs as possible.

The National Jobs Council has started work to oversee the creation of 100,000 jobs and training opportunities under the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package, he said.

He said that Singapore will not only overcome this crisis, but will emerge from it stronger as an economy, as a society and as a people.
