Singapore’s Minister of Manpower Gan Kim Yong said that the Government will increase its investment in continuing education and training (CET) to about $2.5 billion over the next five years to help more workers across industries.

One example of this training is the new Productivity Initiatives in Services and Manufacturing (PRISM) to support the broader national push to raise productivity. PRISM will offer a suite of productivity-related programs like master classes, seminars and training courses for both the manufacturing and services sectors.
