#SGBudget: Excerpts from Finance Minister Tharman's speech

Our mission is to build an inclusive society and a stronger Singapore. A whole array of social and economic strategies is aimed at achieving this defining goal. It means upgrading our economy and developing deeper skills, so that we can sustain growth, create better jobs in every vocation and enable Singaporeans to earn better incomes. It means doing more to help children from poorer homes overcome early disadvantages, find their strengths and develop to their fullest potential, so that we keep social mobility up. Equally, we have to help our elderly live well, and provide stronger support for Singaporeans with disabilities - they all have a part in our nation's progress and must share in its fruits.
