PE2011 presidential candidate Tan Jee Say commented in a Facebook book that his economic strategy in 2011 was right after all.

In GE2011, Tan Jee Say proposed a 60B economic restructuring plan to strengthen Singapore’sl economy by proposing to rebuild the economy through a five year economic regeneration plan

His proposal was quickly shot down by late Minister Mentor , saying that manufacturing was still a backbone for Singapore’s economy. Moving manufacturing out would mean loss of jobs for Singaporeans.
