MEASURING THE PULSE OF SINGAPORE by Blackbox Research
Accordingly to Blackbox Research, 2014 was a year in which the Government announced major changes to medical insurance (Medishield Life) and new benefits for the elderly (the Pioneer Package) andexperienced a contrast in fortunes in two major areas –public transport and CPF.
After facing considerable unrest over public transport responses through 2012-13, the Government successfully turned things around in 2014. Community satisfaction with its public transport efforts rose from 53% in January to 73% by the year’s end.
Overall, Blackbox Research shows that 79% of Singaporeans surveyed are satisfied with the way things are going in Singapore, while 65% rate current economic conditions in Singapore as Excellent/Good.
This is a pretty good outlook for the People's Action Party (PAP) as Singapore prepares for General Election 2016.
