Less foreign workers in Singapore

Hey everyone,

I am Anne-Lise and I'm in charge of the editorial team here at Expat.com. As you may or may not know, the Singaporean government has decided to cut down on foreign workers in the services sector. We have gathered some information for the article below:

But we would also like to hear from you for a future article. What do you think of this measure? Are any of you worried?

Feel free to answer on this post or send me a private message!

Thank you,
Anne-Lise

Every sector will get a pinch hit. IT sector will be in the list. As automation is looming in Banking and Finance sectors here, most of service delivery and IT support jobs are going to hit. Many banks have already relocated their IT staffs to India. In years to come, this process will be continuing.

It depends on in IT, what’s your job role. Read my thread, I have defined it. Good luck
