You can change the laws, by-laws , guidelines whatever hence this is the crux of the issue.

The plan is to bring in 30K aryanis into this country every year and hopefully they will intergrate



Nazi Aryans or Gahmen Aryans? :p

Aryanis revolution revolve being the supreme race and having full control of political and social situation of the land they behold.
Genetic aryanis aka German Nazis or some similarity to the Japanese as being one race one nation one culture and one mind
To emulate this takes alot of effort and careful planning but sometime things does not go your away and everything turn to custard.
One can take and make this evolution by careful and measured planning of all possible contingency but the hands of Mother Nature has more cause and effect when it is mixed into this chemistry
30K to assimilate and procreate every year will not cut out as time always tell it will always turn out to be something that you do not expect.
I know many will not understand what I am rambling about but for those whose been here and done that will know and understand the true revelation of this gospel

Most of the ideal candidates they could attract have no desire to give up their current citizenship. But I'm sure they'd gladly go dual.


Well, I do hope the government secretly reads these forums so they know why people don't give up their citizenships and take up a Singaporean one.

For me, I've worked and paid a lifetime of tax in my 'home' country, and I feel that I've earned the right to reap the benefits that citizenship of that country brings, such as government subsidized healthcare should I fall seriously sick, welfare or pension, security, a place I can retire to, and many many other reasons.

To be told you have to flush it all down the toilet in one stroke of the pen, for essentially no real tangible benefits to show for in the new adopted country is just crazy talk.

More importantly, these are also the reasons why some Singaporeans leave as well. Opportunities and quality of life that comes with having residency elsewhere, for some, outstrips that of their birth country.

Duel citizenship would be the best solution, as it would allow people, such as my wife (a Singaporean), to accept foreign citizenship, without burning bridges with Singapore. Many have already burnt that bridge.

It would also allow someone such as myself to feel like a member of society, not not just another Ang Mo with PR status, a status that is as permanent as the policies of our politicians, and as solid as the support voters give them.

And it has to be said - not everyone that gives up a foreign citizenship for a Singaporean one, is truly loyal to Singapore. If this is the reason behind the current policy, it's a deluded one.

As splatted knows, I'm cut from a similar bolt of cloth. Been her 30 years but a PR. Two children, local wife, and feel exactly the same way. That's why I'm still a PR. Fight for this country? I have. I've weathered 5 recessions here and helped to work this country through them all without being a quitter.
