The Parliament is a symptomatic reflection of the inner well-being of a nation-state. Good governance is paramount in the conduct of parliamentary business as it presides over the legislation of new laws, controls the state’s finances and acts as the critical and inquisitorial voice that checks on the actions of the Executive. What are the factors to consider when Parliament deliberates and debates over new policy bills? How would the Parliament represent and balance the interest of both businesses and employees in today’s increasingly uncertain geo-political and social landscape? Are there opportunities for greater collaboration between the Government, unions and businesses to optimise productivity and enhance the work experiences in Singapore?
