As the semester came to an end last year, NTU students had the opportunity to be “Up Close and Personal” with Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office on Nov 13. Titled “Challenges and Opportunities in the Eyes of the Next Generation”, the two-hour session was meant to serve as a prologue to Ministerial Forum 2016. The key talking point was on how youths could mitigate challenges and risks, and maximise opportunities for themselves. Mr. Chan also spoke on wide-ranging topics, including Singapore’s ageing population, overseas community involvement projects and the future economy.
