Master plan to develop Singapore into global IP hub | Channel News Asia

Master plan to develop Singapore into global IP hub | Channel News Asia | Poverty Assignment_(serena lim) | Scoop.it

A new 10-year master plan aimed at developing Singapore into a global Intellectual Property (IP) hub was unveiled Monday.

 

The master plan, which was formulated by an IP Steering Committee, was revealed by the Ministry of Law after the government accepted the committee’s recommendations.

 

The committee, which is led by MediaCorp chairman Mr Teo Ming Kian, was formed in May 2012 after the government identified IP as a key driver of global economic growth.

 

"What the government is constantly on the lookout for is new opportunities for Singaporeans… and one new growth area we identified was the IP industry, because that is basically growing exponentially worldwide," said Senior Minister of State for Law Indranee Rajah.

 

Among the recommendations outlined in the master plan is a call for Singapore to be an international hub for IP transactions and management.

The committee also recommended boosting the quality of IP filings as well as IP dispute resolution in Singapore.

 

To achieve these outcomes, the committee said that Singapore should develop skilled manpower resources networked to the region and beyond, as well as create an environment suitable for IP activities to strengthen Singapore as a vibrant IP hub.

 

There is also an increasing need to have ideas and knowledge to move up the value-added chain in the economy, said Mr Teo.

I am happy to know that our country will have a reign over other competing countries with this new growth area in the IP industry. This opportunity will not only benefit Singapore as a fast developing nation with a great environment and infastructure, but also the manpower in Singapore. As a global IP hub in the heart of Southeast Asia, we will have more skilled manpower resources, making Singapore more efficient worldwide.

This is my insight of the article using the thinking routine of see-think-wonder.I see a normal bowl which a family bought at a yard.But when they send it for auction,the bowl actually turned out to be a 'treasure' that they had bought and it fetched a price of $2.2 million.I think that the people who find this no value,it's at thier own loss.I wonder how many people in this world would ever judge things by it's image.

This article talks about a family in New York who went to snoop around a yard and got themselves a bowl which no one else see any good in.They treated the bowl with good care and placed it on their mantle piece.Recently,this family got curious and sent it for an  auction,unexpectedly,that bowl was sold at 2.2 Million.Just an ordinary bowl something where no one else see in,actually a beauty in disguise.

Mr_Nice24's curator insight, June 26, 2013 7:58 PM

I can see that the bowl which was initially worth just $3 to majority of New Yorkers, actually had a tremendous value of $2.2 million. This allowed the bowl at the cost of a rag, became riches at an auction. I think that different people see the value of different things differently. I wonder how people in Singapore would see this bowl, how valueable one might find it.

Reducing poverty starts with children.

Poverty hits children hardest. While a severe lack of goods and services hurts every human, it is most threatening to children’s rights: survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection from harm and exploitation. It creates an environment that is damaging to children’s development in every way – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Some regions of the world have more dire situations than others, but even within one country there can be broad disparities – between city and rural children, for example, or between boys and girls. An influx or tourism in one area may improve a country’s poverty statistics overall, while the majority remains poor and disenfranchised.

  There are so many other articles out on the internet talking about poverty. I chose this one as i feel poverty affects the children the most. For example, children living in the Khewa district of Afghanistan (formerly Taliban controlled).From my knowledge the girls were not allowed to have an education and the boys only received religious education. Such things will affect them in the future like not being able to get a job, thus going into poverty. Luckily UNICEF works with the government on developing broad national planning frameworks like Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) and Sector-wide Approaches to Programming (SWAPs) by doing legislative reforms.

Le Hong Phuc's curator insight, January 18, 2014 8:56 AM

Seeing a picture of a young boy in his old stained sweater, holding his hands tightly inside the sleeve sitting on the rooftop. He is surely a poor child, I told myself. His eyes speak out, he seems like not having enough warmth or food to fill up his stomach that has been empty since when! The background of houses, steel roofs, substandard walls and paint work, it’s a poor neighbourhood.

I have seen worse, young children living beneath the bridge, or those as young as primary 2 students walking along the streets selling chewing gums and tissue paper for a live. I have seen some sleep by the roads, despite the cold weather and the nonstop flow of noisy transportation. As children, they do not deserve that. They have the right to survive, the right to access healthcare, education, have the right to participate in any activities for their age, and the right to be protected. Looking at them I see a paradoxical image of me. From the bottom of my heart I ask myself what justice has been done, that leaves those children suffer? Global organizations have set up the rights for children, but I do not see those rights being carried out, or at least at some area.

UNICEF, is a global organization working on helping children, they step in. By creating countless plans and frameworks, they are striving to give the poor children a better life. Yes providing food, necessities, amenities, water, sanitation, healthcare, housing, and last but not least, education. UNICEF also has raised awareness around the world, and helped effect policies for children’s well-being.

After reading this article,i find that actually poverty is a very dangerous "illness" because if this happen to children , it may cause all these : a severe lack of goods and services hurts every human, it is most threatening to children’s rights: survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection from harm and exploitation. It creates an environment that is damaging to children’s development in every way – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

i hope that it will get better and people in the poverty able to get out from it .

Serena Lim's insight:

This is my insight of the article using the see-think-wonder routine.I see that this article is talking about the self-esteem of the women in this world who has dark skin.They have very low self-esteem,as people were looking down on them,calling them names like 'black women'.I think that they should not receive this kind of insults and criticizes as after all they are like us,living in this world.Just because they have a darker skin does not mean that we can look down on them or say that they are ugly.Some of them can be very pretty too,even most of them were.I wonder how would they survive in this kind of unfair treatment if it continues on despite of raising awareness to everyone.

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the blacks are treated differently from the others, as if they are not important, all because their skin color are different. I think that this kind of behavior is rather disappointing and disgusting, seeing how blacks are no different from us. We are all humans, we have feelings. I wonder what could have made them think that they can judge a person just from his/her appearance, without knowing anything about them.

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the blacks are treated differently from the others, especially in the past as if they are not important, all because their skin color are different. I think that this kind of behavior is rather disappointing and disgusting, seeing how blacks are no different from us as we are all human and there should be equality. All of us have feelings. So i wonder how the 'Whites' will feel if they are discriminated like that 'blacks'.

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's curator insight, July 2, 2013 11:43 AM

Using the 'see-think-wonder', I can see from this article that the black people are treated very differently from white people. White americans often discriminate the African American people and often look down on them. Probably since the African American were once slaves that were freed by Lincoln. But that was history and we should not let it repeat itself, just because others are of a different skin colour does not mean we should look down on them. After all,they too are humans, and so are we. I think that people who look down of the black people should really reconsider their reasons. Why follow others ways when it is known that they have made the wrong decisions? I wonder how the black people cope with such discrimination and how their daily lives go about.

This is my insight using the See-Think-Wonder thinking routines.

From what i see, a child is wearing a jacket, hugging his own knees.From his expression i can indicate that he was a poor child with an sympathsing impression.

I think because of poverty occuring around the world, every child should deserve a help like food needed, clean drinking water or treating their health problems. Thus, the picture shows what a child's eye could express his or her problems and as well as the feeling of hardships they have been suffering all this while.

I wonder what if the whole world knows about this, would they think of ways to help them, or just read this article just for the sake of reading it.
