Marine Parade GRC Member of Parliament got in on the debate as well and gave Singaporeans “useful tips” on how to deal with rising costs of living.

He said, “I just want to say that in addition, I think one key aspect in how – perhaps it is within the eight but I didn’t hear it – is about consumer education.”
