新加坡总理2011年国庆日致辞
来源:口译网    日期: 2011-08-11

  The Singapore economy is consolidating its recovery from the 2008 global economic crisis.  GDP grew 4.9% in the first half of 2011, while unemployment remains low at 2.1%. Despite some risks on the horizon, we project steady growth of 5-6% for 2011.
  
  亲爱的同胞,我国自从摆脱了2008年的全球经济危机,经济已恢复稳健的增长。今年上半年增长了百分之4.9,失业率也维持在百分之2.1的低水平。尽管前景存有一些风险,我们今年预料能取得介于百分之5到百分之6的增长率。
  
  Our last five years were marked by uncertainty and rapid change. We enjoyed several very good years when our economy boomed, and wages went up. But we also experienced some very worrying moments, especially during the global economic crisis.
  
  过去五年,我们的大环境起落不定,变化快速。我们经历了几个好年头,经济取得可观增长,员工薪金也有上涨。但是我们也曾经历困难时刻,尤其在全球经济陷入危机的时候。
  
  Amidst such unprecedented turbulence, the Government did its utmost to protect Singaporeans from the global crisis. We introduced the Jobs Credit to keep firms viable and save jobs. We formed the Economic Strategies Committee to identify long-term opportunities and map out a pathway for the future.
  
  我们在应付那场前所未见的经济风暴时,政府尽全力保护国人免受冲击。我们推出了雇用补贴计划,协助公司维持运作和保住工作。我们成立了经济战略委员会,寻找长远的发展机会,以及规划未来的发展道路。
  
  This year, with the cost of living rising, we launched the Grow & Share package to help households cope. We continue to retrain workers to become more employable, and to support needy families through many assistance programmes.
  
  自今年年初以来,我们的生活费上涨得快,政府因此推出“增长共享”配套,帮助新加坡家庭减轻生活负担。我们也继续重新培训员工,以提高他们的受雇能力。我们还实施了多项援助贫困家庭的措施。|
  
  Overall, Govern­ment policies have worked. Our strong reserves saved up over many years gave us the confidence and the means to move decisively with our Resilience Package. Our growth strategies of upgrading education and skills, and breaking into higher-value sectors have created good new jobs for Singaporeans. Compared to five years ago, most households have seen incomes rise.
  
  总的来说,政府的政策已经奏效。我们向来知道未雨绸缪的重要,积累了相当可观的储备金,因此能够果断地推出一项振兴配套。我们积极提升国人的教育和技能水平,也进军更高增值的经济领域来推动经济的增长,为国人创造新的和良好的就业机会,并且在过去五年逐渐为多数家庭带来更高的收入。
  
  But despite our best efforts, we could not shield Singaporeans fully from external shocks. In a rapidly changing situation, the Government had to address the most urgent problems first – stabilising the economy, saving jobs, helping those who were displaced by the crisis.
  
  然而,虽然政府尽力为人民遮风挡雨,但还是无法完全抵挡外界风雨所带来的冲击。在关键时刻,政府的当务之急是稳定经济、保住工作以及协助失去工作的工友。
