Singapore’s lower-wage workers, lower-income families and children with special needs are vulnerable groups hit hard by Covid-19, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat.

Unveiling more initiatives to support these groups, Heng highlighted the importance of Singapore’s “social compact” in his Budget speech on Feb 16.

"Beyond economic opportunities, what is fundamental is our sense of purpose and our sense of togetherness... Ensuring equal opportunities for all and supporting the needy and vulnerable segments of our society are integral to strengthening our social compact."
