But, even if you know nothing about Population White paper, we’re pretty sure you remember pushing your way through Lucky Plaza at Orchard Road on a Sunday afternoon, surrounded by foreigners or squeezing on a packed bus or a crowded MRT, filled with foreigners. We increasingly witness many instances of friction among the resident population (comprising of citizens and PRs) and non-citizens. Within just a span of a decade, there has been a visible spike in the increase of such occurrences.
