Singapore announces new Manpower for Strategic Economic Priorities Scheme

Effective December 13, the Singapore authorities launched the Manpower for Strategic Economic Priorities (M-SEP) Scheme. The M-SEP Scheme is designed to support businesses that strengthen Singapore's economic priorities and competitiveness, and secure employment and training opportunities for citizens of Singapore. The M-SEP Scheme supports and incentivizes companies that contribute to Singapore's economic growth and competitiveness. While the Scheme provides companies with extra flexibility for S Pass and Work Permit holders, these companies are also subject to specific requirements before renewing their M-SEP status.
