Singapore is successful again! The delegates at the IMF/WB events were so impressed with the organisation they could only shower accolades when interviewed by Straits Times reporters. Singaporeans have every reason to be proud of this success. They contributed their smiles to the 4 million smile campaign and that was one of the many positive impressions the delegates have of Singapore - a nation of happy smiling people.
"Our reputation is on the line. If we impress them, they'll be our best ambassadors for Singapore. It's worth a great deal more than any EDB or Tourism Board advertising campaign," said Mr Lee.
Singapore is blessed with one success after another in recent years. Suzhou is also a success. SingTel is riding high on the takeover of Optus. Lessons learned from SingTel's Optus success probably drove Temasek to take over a regional telco known as Shin Corp....we'll probably hear the good news about that soon on our local papers.
Singaporeans are so lucky to be under the such wise leaders whose every move propels Singapore forward from one success to another.
