PM Lee Hsien Loong delivered his National Day Rally speech on 21 August 2016 at the ITE College Central.
The Government is committed to providing more opportunities for older Singaporean workers who wish to continue working as long as they are healthy.
At Budget 2015, the Government introduced an additional wage offset of up to 3% of wages for 2015 to encourage employers to voluntarily re-employ Singaporeans aged 65 and above, earning up to $4,000 a month.
As Singapore moves towards raising the re-employment age to 67 by 2017, the Government has decided to extend the wage subsidy until the new re-employment age of 67 comes into effect.
Singapore is coming to the close of SG50 – an extra special jubilee year that brought us closer together as one people.
Our country today is the work of more than one generation, and our future will depend on what we make of it together.
It is up to each of us to voice our hopes and our future dreams. We can all play a part to build our future and create a shared vision for Singapore:
