Singapore has travelled from Third World to First, but what is the next chapter in the Singapore Story? What do we want Singapore to be 20 years from now?
Touching on Singapore’s shared future in his National Day Rally Speech, Prime Minister (PM) Lee Hsien Loong, shared that the next chapter in the Singapore Story to be about Hope, Heart and Home, where we look to our shared future with confidence and Hope; where we treat one another and others too with a big Heart; and where we build for our children and grandchildren our best Home.
He highlighted while some trends such as a more mature economy, ageing society and better educated generation are foreseeable, others such as technological advances & breakthroughs, are not. PM Lee added that while it is important for Singapore to keep improving in a rapidly changing world to adapt to changes and to exploit new opportunities in order to thrive, he emphasised that Singapore’s future is not predetermined.
He calls for all to actively join the national conversation on Our Singapore lead by Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, to contribute ideas and to work together to create a better Singapore.
