Mary and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew. We extend our deepest condolences to his children Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Ms Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang, and their families.

As Singapore’s founding Prime Minister, Mr Lee dedicated his life to Singapore, and served Singapore till his final days. His vision to build a prosperous, meritocratic and multiracial Singapore defied expectations. When others doubted our chances of survival, he strove for excellence. Today, much that defines Singapore bears his influence: security and the rule of law, our cultural diversity and our economic progress, our public housing and our gardens. Without Mr Lee’s strong leadership and immense contributions, the Singapore that we know today would not have existed.

Mr Lee’s passing is a great loss to all of us and to Singapore. It is up to us to honour the legacy of Mr Lee and the founding generation of Singapore by building upon their work to make Singapore an even better place for generations to come. Dr Tony Tan, President of Singapore
