LKY100 Lee Kuan Yew

Lee Kuan Yew

The creator of modern Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew (16 September 1923–23 March 2015), was a great leader and widely renowned visionary who turned the island into a powerful country and economic powerhouse.

During his tenure as Singapore’s Prime Minister, Mr Lee developed policies that improved living standards and education levels and ensured security and stability. In 2015, he passed away at the age of 91.

The People’s Action Party marks Mr Lee’s birth centenary with a commemoration of his bold vision and values for the Party and Singapore.

As part of LKY100, the Party will introduce a line-up of initiatives honouring his ideals and hoping to inspire a new generation of Singaporeans.

These include planting 10,000 trees through Tree Planting Days held across all 15 PAP Town Councils, community dialogues and public programmes.

These initiatives will help to foster a greater appreciation of nature, encourage the spirit of volunteerism, and nurture closer ties among Singaporeans. Through this, the Party hopes to continue Mr. Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy and inspire a new generation of Singaporeans.
