National Day Rally

The rising cost of living was highlighted as the hottest issue for Singaporeans by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his National Day Rally speech on August 17.

He said the government will provide help for Singaporeans from all income groups. This includes an increase in the second payout of this year’s Growth Dividends by 50% as well as a 50% increase in this year’s U-Save rebates.

Mr Lee also spoke about the need to create a more gracious society, pro-baby measures as well as easing rules on political activities and outdoor public demonstrations.

I believe to make a gracious society, it have to start from its Government. Free healthcare, free school, tax rebate will help the society to be more relax and probably increase number of babies 🙂
