I am a UK national but of east asian descent. So no local ties, but I will at least 'look' like a local.

Can anyone comment on the trend in the last ~2 years that local employers are not hiring foreigners on employment passes as they're encouraged to hire locals? For example i've heard MBB in Singapore is only hiring locals. I wonder if the same is true for the global and local PE funds in SG

Thanks for the responses so far
