                           is still quite prevalent in the market. "We have taken stepsto rectify this by creating

                           non-Japanese     companies."We will aggressively   move towards rebrandingJAC as an

             Yuan saysthere are quite a lew challengesahead due to the economic downturn. Also, the contin-
         ued restructuring ofthe Singaporeeconomywill result in more highly specialisedjobs, which the local
         talentpool cannot support, while many employersare still averseto hiring foreign talent.
             "Stayingflexibleto reactto marketneedsinthe shortestpossibletimewill be the key to our success,"
