Did you know that Jurong Town Hall was gazetted as a national monument in 2015? It was the first permanent headquarters of JTC Corporation – a landmark in our economic and industrial journey.

This morning, I attended the official opening of the Trade Association Hub at Jurong Town Hall. 25 Trade Associations and Chambers have set up their offices here, including the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI). The facilities are good, and the associations can easily connect and collaborate with one another. There is still space available, so chope your spots early!

Over the next 15-20 years, Jurong will become Singapore’s second commercial and business district. The Hub is well-located to be part of this buzz, and contribute to our prosperity and growth. – LHL (MCI Photos by Chwee)

The year-end school holidays are here! Our students can take a break from the hustle and bustle of school life. Parents, do spend time with your family. You deserve a break too!

For those awaiting their results, best of luck as well. Happy holidays! – LHL (Children by the Singapore River./ Photo by me)

Honoured to accept the @asean Chairmanship from Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte at the closing ceremony of the #ASEAN2017 Summit last night.

We will build on the good work by the Philippines and previous Chairs to strengthen our Community, and make #ASEAN more innovative and resilient.

My thanks to President Duterte and the people of the Philippines for their warm and gracious hospitality. Look forward to welcoming all ASEAN Member States to Singapore in 2018!

Heading home now! – LHL


A packed day at the #31stASEANSummit yesterday.
#ASEAN at 50 has come a long way. We have worked hard to create a peaceful and stable environment, build an ASEAN community, and engaged external partners to grow and prosper with us.

At the opening session of the Summit, I spoke on keeping ASEAN relevant, innovative, and resilient. First, we must push on with economic integration, against the current climate of anti-globalisation and protectionism. Second, we must use technology and globalisation to create jobs and growth for our countries. Third, ASEAN must stand united in the face of terrorism and non-traditional security threats.

Also had “ASEAN plus One” meetings with the US, China, South Korean, and Japanese leaders. We will continue to deepen cooperation and dialogue with our partners. – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Exuberant performances by our hosts at the opening ceremony at the #ASEAN Summit. Many of the performers were young people, an apt symbol of the energy and dynamism of the ASEAN region. – LHL (Photos by me)

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte hosted dinner last night for leaders and partners attending the #ASEAN Summit in Manila.

We were entertained by many talented Filipino singers, dancers, and musicians, but the star turn of the night was an impromptu serenade by Mr Duterte himself - at the request of US President Trump! – LHL (Photos by me)


From one summit to another - crossed the South China Sea, and am now in Manila for the @ASEAN Summit.
Aside from meeting our ASEAN partners, we will also be engaging leaders from China, India, Japan, South Korea, Russia, and the US, EU and UN. Busy time ahead! – LHL (PMO Video by Chiez How)

An eventful two days in Danang, at the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting (AELM). Glad the 11 TPP countries settled on the core elements of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) - and introduced yet another inscrutable acronym to the world. It was not easy to remove one TPP country and have the remaining 11 reach an agreement almost the same as the original. We’ve come a long way, and will now work on getting the final legal document signed.
In the Digital Age, economies need to go forward, not retreat. Governments have an active role supporting this, encouraging and helping businesses and workers to upgrade and adjust, so that no one is left behind. The APEC Leaders discussed this during our retreat.

Look forward to working together with APEC leaders to foster prosperity and peace in the region in the years ahead! Now, off to the Philippines for the ASEAN Summit. – LHL

Have arrived in Danang, Vietnam, for the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting (AELM). Vietnam was battered by Typhoon Damrey just last weekend. Danang escaped the worst of the flooding, but unfortunately elsewhere lives were lost. Aside from preparing for the Summit and visitors, Vietnamese authorities have also had to carry out search and rescue operations, as well as clearing up after the thunderstorm.

The rain has lightened considerably, as the storm has mostly dissipated. Our discussions will focus on promoting regional economic integration and inclusive and sustainable growth together. – LHL

As a longtime frequent user of Facebook, I was happy to meet Facebook COO @sherylsandberg yesterday. She was enroute to Danang, Vietnam for the APEC CEO Summit, and stopped over in Singapore to visit the local Facebook community, and of course, the Facebook Asia Pacific HQ here.

We spoke about some of the latest developments at Facebook. One issue preoccupying both of us was fake news on social platforms. Glad that Facebook is committed to working with partners to deal with this very pertinent and serious problem. – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Mr Puteh bin Mahamood (pictured here together with his daughter and son-in-law) is one of this year’s PMO Long Service Award recipients. He has been working in the Elections Department (ELD) since 1947, 70 years ago! Mr Puteh has witnessed every election since the Legislative Council General Election in 1948, the first time elections were held in Singapore. At 86, he is alert and independent, and looks 20 years younger.

Mr Puteh was one of 80 PMO officers who received National Day Awards and Long Service Awards this afternoon. The awards recognise their contributions and dedication to the Public Service. It’s a small but meaningful ceremony to honour and thank those who consistently give of their best to make Singapore a better place for all. Congratulations to all recipients! – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

With the cheerful student ushers at last night’s National Day Awards Investiture Ceremony, held at ITE College Central.
This year, President Halimah Yacob conferred awards to around 500 outstanding individuals who have, in their different ways, made Singapore a better place to live in for all of us.
Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients! May you continue to do your best and make Singapore proud. – LHL (MCI Photos by [1] Fyrol and [2] Terence Tan)
