With the recent news about the ASEAN economic community, how will it impact the hiring policy of Singapore? Will foreigners from ASEAN countries still need the working permits from MOM to get a job here?

Can you give a link to 'the recent news', so it's clear what you're referring to?

More than ever. They've already seen what a debacle it's been in Europe, why would a tiny island state open up it's border to hoards of 3rd world economic migrants. It would kill this island state and they know that.

There may be some additional positive weighting given to ASEAN nationals.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

But I am curious if it will be win-win for Singapore when some ASEAN countries are still pretty anti foreign talent / investment. Including no guarantee of work passes for even investors putting in 7 figure or more in investment. Including Singapore companies.
