CIS joins the people of Singapore in mourning the passing of Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore’s founding father, first Prime Minister and architect of modern Singapore.
Mr Lee co-founded the People’s Action Party (PAP), which has ruled Singapore since 1959, and is widely credited with turning Singapore into one of the world’s wealthiest nations. Thanks to his guidance, Singapore is known as a country that has a widely respected civil service and world class infrastructure.
Mr. Lee, who studied law at Cambridge, valued education and multiculturalism, traits evident in Singapore’s society today: values we share at CIS. Mr. Lee will be remembered as one of the most visionary leaders of the 20th and 21st century.
Along with all of Singapore we remember Lee Kuan Yew. We honour him and we thank him for shaping this remarkable country that together we call home.
