01/2013 – S’pore cannot be “winner takes all” society: PM Lee




He said: “We’re not just doing well for ourselves, we also have to help others, and in particular, to help those who’re not as fortunate as ourselves. We cannot be living in a society where the winner takes all.

“And when you succeed, you know that you worked hard, but friends helped you, parents helped you, teachers helped you, your colleagues helped you. Your classmates gave you friendly competition, shared homework with you. And so, you owe a responsibility to them to help them too, to care for them and to work together to give back to society, so that we can all progress together.”

Mr Lee added that the government will be introducing new policies to grow Singapore’s economy while improving its social system.

The objective, he said, is to help young Singaporeans find good jobs with good opportunities in future.
