ince 2008, ASPRI has been a strategic partner of Workforce Singapore (WSG) in developing the local workforce and companies in the Process Construction & Maintenance (PCM) industry. WSG is heartened to have ASPRI’s strong support in the promotion of our Adapt and Grow initiatives, such as the Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs), P-Max, and Career Support Programme (CSP). As of May 2018, more than 100 PCM companies have benefitted from our Adapt and Grow initiatives and schemes.
The PCM sector is an important supporting pillar for the Energy & Chemicals (E&C) industry. Hence, the push for PCM companies to achieve manpower-lean and productivity improvements will also have a scalable impact on the E&C industry. I am confident that WSG and ASPRI will continue our strong partnership in reaching out to the industry on Transform and Grow initiatives, such as WorkPro Job Redesign and Lean Enterprise Development (LED) Scheme. To further support pervasive innovation throughout the economy and build deep capabilities in our local workforce, there are also other schemes such as the Capability Transfer Programme (CTP) which supports the transfer of overseas capabilities to locals.
WSG looks forward to a closer and deeper collaboration with ASPRI to outreach to the industry and help companies transform their businesses, innovate to become manpower-lean and competitive, and create good jobs for the local workforce.
On behalf of WSG, I would like to thank ASPRI for their dedicated efforts and commitment for the good work done to transform and advance the PCM sector through its close collaboration with government agencies and plant owners. I wish ASPRI and all its members continued success in the years ahead.
