PM Lee is barking up the wrong tree. He thinks that low productivity is due to the lack of skills. He does not seem to realize that the primary causes of low productivity are:
1. The use of cheap, inadequately trained foreign workers.
2. The deteriorating infrastructure
3. Congestion and long travelling time, leading to tired workers
4. The confusing government websites and unsatisfactory payment systems, caused mainly by the excessive focus on security
I hope that he comes down from his ivory tower.
