National Day Message 2023

9th August 2023
Dear Singaporeans,

As we come together to celebrate Singapore’s National Day, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest appreciation for the hard work and dedication of all Singaporeans. It is through our collective effort that Singapore has prospered and

become a world-class nation.

Today, we celebrate Singapore’s 58th birthday and take pride in the many achievements of our nation in the past few decades. From our world-class infrastructure and bustling economy to our vibrant culture and strong sense of unity, Singapore has come a long way since our nation’s independence in 1965.

Our nation has achieved many successes and we have much to be proud of. But as we look forward, we must also recognise that there is still much work to be done.

We must continue to strive for progress and ensure that our society remains strong and inclusive. This means creating an environment where everyone – regardless of race, religion, or socio-economic background – has an equal opportunity to pursue their dreams and fulfil their potential.

Fighting corruption, fair play at work and in politics, and racial prejudices at workplaces must also be held right in check. This includes investing heavily in our people, creating high quality jobs, and providing easy access to quality healthcare and education.

We also believe that Singapore needs to be open to the world. We must create a vibrant and diverse society by welcoming people from all countries and cultures. But we must also not become over-reliant on cheap foreign workers to resolve our manpower needs. We must embrace the power of diversity and tap into the collective strength and knowledge of the world, especially with heavy commitment and investments into A.I. and automation technologies.

As we look ahead to the future, we must remember that Singapore’s progress can only be achieved through the collective effort of every Singaporeans. So, let us come together and work towards a brighter future for all.

Happy National Day!
