The People’s Action Party 1st Assistant Secretary-General Heng Swee Keat said that it is the responsibility of Party activists and the party in power to ensure the integrity of the system in Singapore.
Reiterating PAP’s mission to build a fair and just society, where the benefits of progress are spread widely to all, Mr Heng said, “Generations of PAP leaders and comrades have served with integrity, conviction and compassion. We have always done what is right by Singaporeans, for Singaporeans. The 4G will do the same.”
In his maiden address to the party activists, Mr Heng reiterated that the 4G leadership team is clear about the fundamentals to Advance Singapore Together – the theme of the Awards and Convention this year, and is committed to work with Singaporeans to build Singapore’s future.
On the uncertain global climate Mr Heng also expressed that the PAP Government is watching the economy vigilantly, and that they have ‘the plan and resources to take action when needed ‘.
Cautioning that Singapore is not immune to forces of polarisation dividing the society as reflected in the politics of the United States, and protests in Hong Kong, Mr Heng pledged to continue to work with Singaporeans. He said, “We want to put partnerships with Singaporeans front and centre… Instead of just working for our people, we want to work with our people.”
Calling on the support of all PAP activists, Mr Heng said, “With your support, we can mobilise Singaporeans to work together, and build an even better Singapore.”
