“While I am thankful that our various partners and stakeholders have worked with us collectively to boost job matches and keep unemployment rates on a downward trend, I am also mindful that our unemployment rates remain elevated. We will continue to monitor our unemployment rates closely, especially as businesses in certain sectors are again faced with challenges with the recent tightening of measures in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert),” said Manpower Minister Tan See Leng in a Facebook post.
