部长曾推托国会直播“需求不高” 首两日已冲破8万播放次数

在2021年的首次国会中,我国开启历史性的国会直播,公众可在通讯及新闻部的官方Youtube频道,全程观看当日国会议事。 目前频道设有英语口译,相信将来会拓展增加华语和马来语口译。本社发现,在本周一(4日)首次进行直播时,观看人数就已突破6万播放次数。 但是回顾2017年,当时任职的通讯及新闻部长徐芳达,在答复工人党议员毕丹星的质询表示,根据所收集的数据,国会直播的收视率仍然很低。 “即使如重要的演说如预算案,观看人数也不及当晚观看新闻摘要的百分之十,不到1巴仙的观众使用网络直播观看预算案的进程。”这也是迄今为止为什么政府一直不开放国会直播的原因。 在Youtube直播后的影片,会留下播放次数的记录,仅仅首日国会直播英语口译版,就有高达5万2526播放次数,加上原声版的1万6388人次,意味着首日就有多达6万8914人次。即便隔日的英语口译和原声版直播,观看次数也达到2万0416人次。 换言之,这样的数据似乎已打脸2017年徐芳达,指国会直播“需求不高”的说法。 本社也留意到,与首日直播相比,第二天的观看人数会比较少,个中原因很可能是观众未留意到周二仍有直播。 而在上周末,国会直播一事已被媒体大肆报道和宣传,因此观众相对知道有关本周一将会开启首次国会直播一事,但却对于第二天的直播谈论不多。 另一种解释很可能是由于周二直播开始得较早,要知道国会通常于人们办公期间开始,并且可能在下午的时间进行。 即便如此,也不能否认,新加坡国会直播仍有观众观看的事实。

李显龙以独立初期喻今 疫情危机下开拓新道路

副总理兼财政部长王瑞杰,今午(5月26日)在国会发表330亿元的“坚毅向前”预算案(Fortitude Budget)。短短四个月以来,政府公布四套财政预算案,政府从储备金共拿出520亿元,应对此次冠状病毒19疫情。 四个预算案加起来总值929亿新元。 配合今日预算案的公布,我国总理李显龙发文“以古喻今”,提起新加坡独立仅仅两年后就曾陷入危机,原本支援狮城国防和经济的英国决定撤出,“面对不确定前景,开国先贤仍决意要保障国人的生计。” 为此,他表示今人也需有此信念。贸工部今日预计今年经济增长将萎缩4至7巴仙,同样是独立以来最严重的萎缩。 “感谢建国一代的牺牲和高瞻远瞩,积累起我们的储备,使之得以扶助我们的人民。历届政府的财政谨慎和纪律,使我们在克服危机上处在更稳健位置,并在疫情后越发强大。” 他指出,当前保住和制造就业机会将是优先任务。协助企业适应和转型、创造新就业岗位、提供工人更多培训机会。同时,支援前线机构、家户和社区,以及社会中弱势和有需要的人士,李显龙宣称“一个都不能少”( No one will be left…
