No, we are not preventing competition. What we are preventing is duds getting into Parl and govt. Any person of quality, we welcome him but we don’t want duds. We don’t want Chee Soon Juan, or J.B. Jeyaretnam. They’re not going to build the country. But if any serious man turns up and forms an alternative equal to us, I say, ‘Good’. Then we are getting a proper alternative. But look at the candidates they put up.

陈振声:欣慰新鲜食材供应未受影响 新马同意保障双边供应链

尽管邻国马来西亚落实14天的全国性“行动限制”措施,贸工部长陈振声发文表示,欣慰新鲜食材的供应未完全受影响,我国大部分批发和零售商今早仍能收到货。 陈振声今日(18日)下午在脸书分享一则本地英语媒体《母舰》的文章,并指出包括婴儿纸尿片、药品等都成功入境我国。他提及有商家反映,一些没有运载食材的卡车被拒绝入境。对此他表示当局正密切监督情况,并与马国方面保持联系,确保日常用品和食材的供应顺利。 总理李显龙是在昨天与马国首相慕尤丁通话,后者表示新马之间的物资物流,包括食物供应仍会持续。 陈振声指出,他与马国高级部长兼国际贸工部长阿兹敏联系,双方认同保障新马双边的供应链正常运作符合共同利益,同时需让两国企业人民保持信息,能战胜疫情。 陈振声表示,本地一些公司也透过替代管道如海运及空运,从马国运来新加坡,我国经纪机构也和企业合作以减少疫情期间对供应链的影响。 “大部分公司成功为他们的马国雇员安排好临时住宿。这对于他们来说,要做出离开家人留下工作的决定并不容易,感谢他们做出的牺牲,保障我国经济和基本服务运营得以如常运转。”
