    No Name

    It is an abbreviation for "Foreign Talent". It is often used by local media when referring to foreigners that have immigrated to Singapore's in its course of history. Contrary to some assumptions, the term is not derogatory, but is associated with the competition for career opportunities being significantly tougher as a result of influx of talent.
