Lee Kuan Yew 1923 – 2015
Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s 1st Prime Minister (1959-1990), died on 23 March 2015, at the age of 91. He was instrumental in transforming Singapore to the successful, affluent country that it is today. Singaporeans, residents and visitors enjoy today the fruits of the efforts made by Mr Lee and his team. We acknowledge and thank Mr Lee for his vision, his drive, discipline and determination, for what he had done to make Singapore what it is today. May he rest in peace.
