Manila’s PSE was the top performer – with a gain of 9.8% in Q1. Thailand wa the worst, the  SET pulling ahead by 0.55%. STI managed 2.4% year-to-date.

The Phi;ippines grew at an annualised pace of 6.9 per cent in the final three months of the year, far ahead of the 6 per cent expected by most analysts. The quarter-on-quarter figure of 2.5 per cent was the highest in almost two decades, according to calculations from analysts at Barclays.

TRE reader’s take on PinoyLand and Pinoys could explain why they still not going home, but prefer to stay here or come here

Peenoy Annoys:

Peenoys overestimate themselves just because the Spore Govt gave them jobs but are in fact is using them as cheap labor. They fail to see that they are being undercut. They get cocky and boastful and are a complete discredit to themselves and their country. And they are just talk and no substance.

Why come to Spore? Because Pinoylands is built on quicksand. If your are worth your salt then go back and contribute to building your slums into a decent habitat.

After all they can discriminate against S’poreans in S’pore

Alleged discrimination based on nationality continued to top the list of complaints received last year by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP), with the banking and information technology sectors still the most problematic.

These cases made up half of about 300 complaints in total. However, TAFEP general manager Roslyn Ten said many stem from misunderstanding and not from genuine bias, and urged companies to improve communication with job seekers or existing employees by explaining why, for example, foreigners instead of Singaporeans were hired or promoted.

Juz wondering if getting paid less than S’porean is a legit reason for discrimination? Juz asking.

  1. for many years, hdb head office in toa payoh has employed a very large number of it/technical workers (all of them are in their 20s and early 30s) from the philippines.

  2. Why come to s’pore? Coz they’re still getting 10X their salary back home.

    If you close the gap to 3X you’ll see many FTrashes fuck off to other countries or go home.

  3. it’s the same all over thee world – $ talks, BS walks.

  4. Because pinoys ( & others ) have skills and are talented.

    Singaporeans are not, because….

    ….”Asked about Singapore’s SkillsFuture initiative, he also said he could not understand Singapore’s preoccupation with skills, and that the education system should focus on developing talent instead.

    “Kids who start primary school this year will apply for jobs that don’t yet exist, so what skills do we need for these jobs that we don’t know anything about, we haven’t a clue. What are skills and competencies for all these unknown jobs? We have no idea,” he said.

    Dr Stephen Murgatroyd, president of Murgatroyd Communications and Consulting, who also spoke at the conference, said the testing regime in Singapore has left some children behind.”
