  Workforce Ready
Transforming Singapore’s agri-food industry into one that is highly productive, innovative and sustainable will also see the creation of about 4,700 jobs by 2030. SFA is working with local farms and institutes of higher learning to roll out internship programmes and diploma courses. SFA reported that 20 students studying aquaculture at local polytechnics have been placed in internships at ten local fish farms. Existing workers in the sector, or workers looking to make a switch can take the SkillsFuture Continuing Education and Training courses which include part-time diplomas in aquaculture and agriculture technology.
When it comes to the future of food security, harnessing innovation and technology is the way forward, ensured by a robust framework on food safety and preparing a future-ready workforce.
