A day after Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower (MOM)’s tender for a foreign worker app to be developed for free incited a wave of negative reactions online, it released a statement to Marketing Interactive clarifying its intentions behind the tender.
MOM said it opted for a “collaborative model to achieve win-win outcomes.”
