Singaporeans-first policies ‘may affect integration of foreigners’

15 December 2015


In an opinion article, Associate Professor Elaine Ho, Department of Geography, found that Chinese immigrants who came to Singapore in the 1990s integrated more efficiently compared with those who arrived after 2004.

This finding were based on in-depth interviews conducted with 20 Chinese immigrants aged between 35 and 65. The finding also suggested that government policies in Singapore that were introduced to enhance preferential treatment for citizens over permanent residents might have affected social integration of foreigners.

The findings were shared at an international symposium on Chinese diasporas that was organised by NTU on 13 December 2015.
