Mr Lee Kuan Yew receives Business China Lifetime Achievement Award
Singapore's founding Prime Minister and former Minister Mentor, Lee Kuan Yew has been presented with the "Business China Lifetime Achievement Award" in celebration of his upcoming 90th birthday later this month.
The celebration was organised by three major Chinese community organisations - the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations, the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Business China.
It was an occasion to remember and recognise many of the initiatives which Mr Lee Kuan Yew has launched over the years to support the Chinese community in Singapore.
Mr Lee had wanted to attend the occasion.
However, as a precautionary health measure, Mr Lee's doctors had advised him to avoid large gatherings, so he was represented at the event by his second son, Mr Lee Hsien Yang.
