The Government has committed to strengthening support for Singaporeans to find jobs.

 

Under the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package , 40,000 jobs will be created in 2020. There will be more places in career conversion programmes, especially in growth sectors like Infocomm & Technology, and Financial Services.
