ISCA CEO, Mr Lee Fook Chiew, was quoted in The Business Times on the question of "What longer-term issues should Singapore's 2020 Budget address?" This is what he has to share:
We hope that Singapore's 2020 Budget will address the issue of educating and training students to be ready for the digital economy. The digitalisation of economies is now the new normal. To thrive in the digital economy, Singapore's workforce of tomorrow must integrate technologies into their daily lives. This requires Singaporeans' mindsets to be changed from young. The education process should start before the tertiary level. Early exposure to digital technologies, coupled with education curriculum that focuses on building digital skills and fostering a mindset of resilience, adaptability and lifelong learning, will contribute towards building a digital-ready workforce for Singapore. This was also shared by panellists at the recent ISCA Pre-Budget Roundtable 2020, where business and industry leaders shared insights on how Singapore's Budget can be shaped to advance the nation's future.
