Mr Lee Kuan Yew was a great man, with a compelling vision for Singapore. He was able to spur the people into action and he made the changes that he wanted to see. He spent his whole life on developing Singapore and I believe that we can confidently say that Singapore would not be where it is today if not for him. Even stepping down as Prime Minister, he continued to serve Singapore through various positions.
Just some of the many contributions of Mr Lee Kuan Yew:
- Liberate Singapore from the British - Fought for merger - Creation of the PAP
- Cleaned the Singapore River
- Fought to make Singapore a clean and green city
Why was he so good?
- He had a compelling vision of singapore as a trade metropolis
- He pushed Singapore into the global market
- He fought for what was right and not what was popular
- He anticipated changes well and kept Singapore relevant
- He rewarded those who worked hard(education, etc.)
- He made a society that gave people equal oppurtunities
