Lee Kuan Yew (1923 – )

Many people remember that Lee Kuan Yew was the Prime Minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990. Under his leadership Singapore faced, and overcame, many challenges to become a developed country.

The challenges that he faced are described in two books that every Singaporean should read. The two books are:

Singapore Story: Memoirs of Lee Kuan Yew” (1998) and
Singapore Story: From Third World to First” (2000).

Lee Kuan Yew stepped down as Prime Minister in 1990 to become Senior Minister. His name graces the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) in the National University of Singapore.

Presently 84 years of age, he still serves Singapore tirelessly as Minister Mentor in the Cabinet.
