Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Singaporeans can and must do their best to help the poor, to express concern for fellow citizens and to make sure needy families are not left behind.
He said there will be needy families in every society, however affluent, so it is not possible to eliminate poverty completely.
Meanwhile, the country's wealth can pay annually for many thousands of dollar for each citizen.
Distributing citizen dividend will eradicate all poverty in Singapore.
Dare to dream.
Alaska has a fund that distributes citizen dividend.
Mongolia has a fund that distributes citizen dividend.
It is not an unachievable utopia.
