vel and PhD holders to 2-year postings in overseas biologics plants since 2007. This year, approximately 180 Singaporeans will be put through the DNA programme to meet the increased demand for labour.

Aware of increased competition for talent as more biopharma firms opt for Singapore company setup, Novartis has announced its own plans to form a training academy. Its training program will expose employees to all of its plants in Singapore, in a bid to offer them a unique a "four-for-one" immersion program in manufacturing operations.

“Singapore’s pharma and biotech manufacturing sector is currently supported by approximately 4,800 skilled engineers and technicians. In a span of a decade, it has become the third fastest growing nation in the world to export pharma good. Through programs such as DNA, we hope that we will groom more Singaporeans for leadership positions and better opportunities as well. That said, this also carves some space for the employment of skilled personnel via the Singapore work visa to complement the workforce in this sector,” said Ms. Christine Lim, General Manager of Rikvin.
