Must Read Books If you are a SINGAPOREAN:

The Singapore Story: Memoirs of LEE KUAN YEW
“In office, I read and analysed every speech of Harry’s.  He had a way of penetrating the fog of propaganda and expressng with unique clarity the issues of our times and the way to tackle them.  He was never wrong…”
Margaret Thatcher


“Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew is one of the brightest, ablest men I have ever met.  The Singapore Story is a must read for people interested in a true Asian success story.  From this book we also learn a lot about the thinking of one of this century’s truly visionary statesmen.” – George Bush


From Third World To First – The Singapore Story: 1965-2000:
“The title of this book, From Third World To First, expresses an aspiration of all developing countries but so far, alas, an achievement of very few.  Singapore is one of those few.  This account of its first years of independence written by its founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, will therefore be of great interest to people of other developing countries and to all those who are interested in their fate.  It is also told with great clarity, in a refreshingly direct style.”
—- Kofi A. Annan, UN Secretary-General


HEART WORK – Lead Author: Chan Chin Bock

Stories of how EDB Steered the Singapore Economy from 1965 into the 21st Century.

HEART WORK collects the stories of many of the key people involved, including present and former Cabinet Ministers.  They recount the struggles faced and overcome, and the strategies that brought in a steady inflow of high value investments into the island Republic.  Along the way, progress has been won through “heart work” – endeavour and enterprise driven by passion and perseverance.  It has been a journey of vision in generating natioal wealth, creating good jobs for fellow countrymen, and shaping a better tomorrow.  The challenge continues today, with the global economy more competitive and the future more intriguing, than ever before!
