SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (Nov 29) announced the launch of the SGfuture engagement series, two years after the conclusion of Our Singapore Conversation, the largest feedback-gathering exercise in the nation’s history.

The SGfuture project will be led by ministers Grace Fu and Chan Chun Sing and builds on the Our Singapore Conversation, which involved more than 660 dialogue sessions where Singaporeans discussed their views on Government policies.

Making the announcement at the opening of the Future of Us exhibition, Mr Lee said he hoped Singaporeans will help shape their collective future through the engagement series.

"I hope you will step forward to work with fellow Singaporeans to shape our future – the Future of Us," said Mr Lee. "So that by SG 100, we will have another celebration as happy and satisfying as this."

He added: "And 50 years from now, our children can come back and tell their grandchildren: It was here they caught a glimpse of what they could create for the future, and we were moved to turn dreams into reality and to write the next chapter of the Singapore story, and that is why after SG 50, Singapore continued to be an endearing and shining little red dot for many more years to come."

Mr Lee then toured the exhibition, which serves as the last major event to round up the SG50 year of celebrations.

The Future of Us exhibition invites visitors to glimpse the possible future scenarios in Singapore in the year 2030, and encourages Singaporeans to explore their role in shaping a collective future.
