Qns: What are Singaporeans’ concerns? What are our migrants’ concerns? Can there be a happy marriage between these concerns?
Ans : I think that Singaporeans are concerned about the population of foreign workers . As more foreign workers comes to Singapore to work and stay , problems such as overcrowding in the cities and the increase of cost of Singapore’s HDB flats arises . Therefore , Singaporeans are concerned about the amount of foreign workers entering Singapore . On the other hand , migrants are concerned to whether they will be accepted in Singapore as their cultural beliefs and practices may not be the same as us . Migrants who just arrived in Singapore may face problem such as finding a place to live and such . The high living cost in Singapore may also be a problem to migrants . Yet , i think there can be a happy marriage between these concerns . Singaporeans can be more open minded and forgiving to the actions of some of the migrants . As the migrants are not yet familiar to our society , they may do things that may anger some Singaporeans such as burning of incense . Therefore , i think that Singaporeans can be more forgiving towards them.
