On the plane to Jeddah, I met a Singaporean lecturer. He recognized me and told me, in his soft spoken way, about the four challenges faced in Singapore:
- Transport. Many people spend up to 3 hours daily on transport. This is a big waste of productivity.
- Housing prices. It is too costly.
- Medical cost. The cost of medical treatment for his mother was so expensive that he had to downgrad from a private property.
- Education. It is too stressful and costly.
I replied that these challenges affect everybody and is a real test of whether the Government has build a good environment for the people.
