Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is celebrating his 10th year as Singapore’s leader. On Facebook, he took the opportunity to thank those who he said made his and the Government’s job to do things for Singaporeans “much easier”.
This is Mr Lee’s message in full:
Ten years ago today, I was sworn in as PM.
I am grateful for this opportunity to serve my country and fellow citizens. I learn much from the people I meet, those who write to me, and those following me on social media. Your views and insights have shown me what we are doing well, and where we need to do better. Your support and engagement means a lot to me.
Thank you too, to the volunteers, grassroots leaders, and supporters who give so generously of your time and energy. You make it much easier for me and the government to do things for Singaporeans.
Thanks also to ESM Goh, who handed over to me a ship in good shape, and has continued to help me guide it safely, through fair winds and stormy seas.
My team and I will continue to do our best for Singapore.
