EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, MR HO KWON PING
A PRODUCTIVE APPROACH TO TRANSFORMING INDUSTRIES
The Straits Times, 5 April 2016
In a commentary, Mr Ho Kwon Ping shared his views on the $4.5 billion Industry Transformation Programme, announced in the 2016 Budget. He argued that government attempts to increase economic productivity must move beyond broad initiatives such as the Productivity and Innovation Credit scheme which any enterprise can take advantage of, to highly targeted measures appropriate to the different needs of each industry sector. To boost productivity in construction, Mr Ho raised the idea of having a Housing Development Board subsidiary buying and leasing labour-saving equipment to smaller companies. He also pointed out that government-linked companies can create a system to partner selected small and medium-sized enterprises to go overseas, whether it be in logistics or consultancies, retail shops or other kinds of service or product providers.
