The speaker for the inaugural Ho Rih Hwa Leadership in Asia Public Lecture Series in 2002 was Singapore’s first Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who spoke about the importance of an innovative and entrepreneurial culture in Singapore and called for a change in values and mindset towards encouraging that for continued economic growth.
As we celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence, Singapore is now at an exciting turning point with major transitions in economics and society. In the last 50 short years, we have established our presence on the world map and it is against this backdrop of solid foundation laid forth by our pioneers that we have to examine the transformations needed to maintain this competitive edge in an ever-changing and dynamic global landscape.
