Singapore celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The road for the last 4 decades was tough, as our forefathers started building the nation to be one of the developed countries in the world. There is the world-class Changi Airport, one of the busiest shipping port, multi-racial living in harmony – all not to be taken for granted.
To commemorate this special day, the Singapore government has announced 7th August 2015 to be a public holiday in Singapore for this year.
Minister Heng Swee Keat, Chairman of the SG50 Steering Committee, said “It is a time for us to show appreciation to our pioneers, to strengthen our ties as one big Singaporean family, and to celebrate all that is special, all that we love, about our home.“
