Question

 

Mr Patrick Tay: To ask the Minister for Trade and Industry for each year from the date the Global Ready Talent Programme was established until 31 August 2022, how many Singaporean PMEs have been placed in the programme.

 

Written Answer by Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong

 

1. The Global Ready Talent Programme (GRT) was launched in 2019 to support businesses in providing more local and overseas internship placements for students, as well as overseas work placements for management associates (MAs) comprising fresh graduates or young talent with less than 3 years of work experience.

 

2. Despite COVID-19 travel restrictions in the last two years, approximately 18,500 local interns and MAs have benefitted from the GRT since its launch, of which over 80% were in Professional, Manager, Executive and Technician (PMET)-type roles (see Table 1 for breakdown). We encourage more companies to come onboard GRT to grow their pipeline of global ready talent.
