President Tony Tan to Singaporeans: I will work hard to realize your ‘dreams’
Posted by temasektimes on September 2, 2012
Dr Tony Tan became the third elected President of Singapore when he secured an overwhelming mandate from Singaporeans against three other rivals in an election last year.
Speaking after the launch of this year’s President’s Challenge Volunteer Drive at the Lions Befrienders on Saturday, Dr Tan reminded Singaporeans that “economic growth is important in building a more caring, compassionate and inclusive society.”
“I will continue to work hard to build a society where Singaporeans will have opportunities to realise their dreams and those in need will not be left behind,” Dr Tan added.
The well-loved people’s President was seen putting the finishing touches on some greeting cards, after which he joined the volunteers to distribute the cards to seniors living in the Bendemeer area.
