MM Lee describes Singapore’s future at NUSS lecture
Lee Kuan Yew on the future of Singapore. The unsaid “we” is, of course, the Chinese. CNA:
Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew painted a picture of the future on Friday at a National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) lecture, on the topic of “Singapore and Singaporeans – Quarter Century From Now”. …
Mr Lee said: “We are caught in a bind – we’ve got to decide this is our country, our society and we must remain the majority. Yes, we will take immigrants; yes, we will take talented people, but we must be the majority.
“Otherwise, they will change us if they are the majority. So I think 25 years from now, Singapore will be more cosmopolitan because we’ve got many people from China, India, Malaysia and from the region. We have European children doing National Service.”
