Singapore’s foreign talent imports
I saw an interesting discussion on a Facebook item. Since I cannot post the entirety of the discussion here, I thought I’ll post selected snippets. One of the comments referred to an incident where PRC students take a free ride on Singapore’s foreign student NUS study scholarships and then head directly to the US for their graduate study completely forsaking their 6-year bond to the country. Blog post found here.
Indeed one pertinent question that must be asked is why the hell is the Singapore government using hard-earned taxpayers money to pay themselves extravagant salaries and subsidise education of foreigners who have no obligation to the country? What penalty is there for foreign bond-breakers?
