Strong, bonded families are the heart of Singapore’s society. We want to strengthen our family-friendly culture and environment so that Singapore will be a great place to set up families and raise children.
Raising fertility rates is the only sustainable way to keep our citizen population stable in the long term. Immigration helps to balance the ageing and shrinking of our citizen population while we press on with our efforts to improve fertility rates.
Singapore has always been a diverse, multiracial society where people of different backgrounds, races and cultures live together. Our history as an immigrant nation has shaped who we are today. With immigration, our population has become more diverse. It is therefore important to strengthen the cohesiveness of our multiracial society amid the increasing diversity.
