Youths reveal 3 areas where they want the government to invest in

Over half of Gen Z are willing to accept short-term economic limitations for these investments.

Sixty-seven per cent of Singaporeans aged 18 to 26 want the government to invest in a longer-term strategy that promotes more sustainable growth, even if it means short-term economic limitations such as lower gross domestic product (GDP) growth.

According to a survey by Dell Technologies, Gen Z Singaporeans specifically want the government to prioritise investments that enable a circular economy (41%), sustainable energy (36%), and smart cities (34%).

Some Gen Z (23%) also want greater sustainability education for citizens.

More than half of Gen Z in Singapore (56%) are confident that public sector recovery investments will deliver a flourishing economy within 10 years. 

“Gen Z will arguably be the most impacted by public and private investment decisions taken today and will facilitate and maintain long-term, sustainable recovery. There is an opportunity to earn the support of Gen Z for longer-term strategies that put sustainability at the core of
economic growth strategies,”  Andy Sim, vice president and managing director, Singapore, Dell Technologies, said.
