Speaking to the media on the sidelines of Singapore G1, DPM Teo said:
“Generosity of spirit and openness in Singapore is something which has been part of Singapore for many generations…..”
DPM Teo also urges Singaporeans to be generous to foreigners as well as the gulf between the two groups continue to grow:
“…if you look around you, all our families, we have always been generous to others, contributing to charity, open to foreigners as well.”
