The Government will examine threat factors and “entry points” before crafting relevant policies to tackle foreign interference, said Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Home Affairs Sun Xueling on Tuesday (Oct 1).
“We want to have the appropriate levers to be able to address the issue, we will look at what are the threat factors and what are the entry points,” said Ms Sun, who was speaking at a panel discussion at the National Press Centre after a special screening of the CNA documentary – Fighting Foreign Interference.
Responding to a question on whether identifying the threat actor in a foreign interference case can affect people’s confidence in proposed legislation, panellist Dr Shashi Jayakumar said that there may be good reasons for naming such adversaries, but there are also downsides.
