Demographic Changes and Immigration Trends: Impact on Malay/Muslim Community

[Event has ended]
Sat, 5 March 2011, 9am to 1pm | English
Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre
Dr Tan Ern Ser, Dr G Shantakumar, Nizam Ismail, Yang Razali Kassim, Saktiandi Supaat

Fees: None

Among other pertinent issues, the forum aims to discuss how trends in demography and immigration would affect the Malay community in terms of educational and employment opportunities, given that it is lagging behind other communities in these spheres. The political development of the Malays is another key area that the discussion aims to touch on.

The forum will also address the following key questions:
Will the progress of the Malay community be derailed by the current demographic and immigration trends? Will it be harder for the Malay community to articulate its concerns given its declining representation among the Singapore population? Will there be an outflow of Malay talents which would be difficult to replace considering the difficulty in attracting Malay talents from abroad? What are the steps that can be taken to address the problem of declining fertility rate among the Malays? Will the struggle of the Malays in the lower socio-economic strata intensify as stiff completion permeates the lower-skilled job categories?
