People care about productiivty

The Singapore government delivered a new budget last week - and made several references to the need to improve productivity ... and raised several means of doing just that. The government runs a feedback web portal called REACH and in the 5 days following the budget there were 21,000 page views and over 200 comments and suggestions.

Most were generally complimentary but a few expressed disappointment that there were no new incentives for individuals such as targeted tax rebates and reliefs.

The interesting, and important, thing from my point of view is that citizens will engage - constructively - given the chance.
