Yesterday marked the start of the @commonwealth2018 (CHOGM) meetings. In my interventions, I spoke on Singapore’s sustainability commitment as well as promoting free trade and investments among Commonwealth countries. Singapore is serious about climate change, as it has a tremendous impact on sustainable development. We will work with other countries – the Singapore Cooperation Programme has trained more than 12,000 officials from developing countries in climate change programmes. On trade, as I explained in my Washington Post op-ed (https://wapo.st/2JYDBPV), countries have benefited from the multilateral approach which sets uniform, universal rules of trade. In addition, many Commonwealth countries participate in regional agreements, like the recently concluded Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Of the CPTPP’s 11 members, 6 are Commonwealth countries: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Singapore. I also suggested Commonwealth countries should utilise the “Commonwealth Advantage” of similar regulatory systems, operating languages, business environments and economic outlooks, to trade more with one another. We must work with one another, to prosper and live in peace together. – LHL #CHOGM2018 (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

Had a good first day of meetings in London. Lunched with UK business leaders earlier and talked about Europe, Asia and Singapore. I also had an engaging chat with several Singaporean youths representing us in the Commonwealth Youth Council at the @commonwealth2018, who are also receiving awards for doing good work specially targeted at youths. Earlier in the day, I met the Duke of York, Prince Andrew. Happy to reaffirm the excellent ties between Singapore and UK. Also discussed ways for Commonwealth countries to do more together. – LHL #CHOGM2018 (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

Just arrived in London for @Commonwealth2018 (The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2018 - CHOGM). The Commonwealth comprises 53 independent member nations. Many, like Singapore, were former British colonies or once part of the British Empire, and thus share common links in language, history, culture, and legal systems. Commonwealth nations work together to uphold an open, rules-based multilateral system that allows all our peoples to prosper. This theme for this year’s CHOGM is “Towards a Common Future”. I will be participating in the Commonwealth Summit and meeting fellow leaders over the next few days to discuss shared global issues of concern. – LHL #CHOGM2018 (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

Welcome home @teamsingapore and well done for flying the flag high at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games this year! Our athletes brought home 9 medals – 5 Gold🥇, 2 Silver🥈 and 2 Bronze🥉 in shooting, table tennis and swimming. Congratulations everyone! Continue to train hard, stay focussed on your goals and do your best! Another Commonwealth event is taking place this week – I will be attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London. It is the biennial meeting of the heads of government from all Commonwealth nations. Will update more on this soon. – LHL #OneTeamSG ([1] Double gold medallist Martina Lindsay Veloso (shooting); [2] Silver medallists (women’s team table tennis); [3] Double gold medallists Gao Ning (left) and Yu Mengyu (table tennis); [4] Bronze medallist Toh Wei Soong (swimming); Photos courtesy of Sport Singapore)

Spoke to grassroots volunteers at the Ang Mo Kio GRC and Sengkang West SMC Endearing Committee Dialogue this morning. It was a good opportunity to take stock of our progress engaging the community, different groups from active ageing to the youth and the needy. My fellow grassroots advisers and I had a free discussion on many issues, mostly about our constituency but we also touched on matters affecting all Singaporeans such as healthcare, the Budget, and GST. Many thanks to everyone who came down and participated in the exchange! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

China aspires to become a “great modern socialist country” in the new era by 2050. What does this mean for the world? This was one of many questions I was asked at the DBS Asian Insights Conference in Shanghai this morning. We had a lively discussion on a spectrum of issues, from Singapore-China relations to developments in international affairs. This year, @dbsbank celebrates its 50th anniversary and 25 years of operations in China. They have done a lot of good work to promote connectivity and innovation in the region. The longstanding close partnership between Singapore and China has contributed to DBS’s success. Our extensive economic and trade links, built over years of friendship, have greatly benefited both local and Singaporean businesses. We can do much more to grow and prosper together. You can watch my speech and dialogue on the PMO YouTube channel. Click on my profile for the link. It was a good visit to China but I’m happy to be back home after a busy week. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Shanghai certainly lives up to its title of China’s fastest-growing city. I was last here in 2010 for the Shanghai World Expo, and the city has changed dramatically since then. Received a warm welcome by Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang, and we had a good discussion on strengthening the cooperation between Singapore and Shanghai, given our similar economic outlooks and openness. Also met a group of Singaporean businessmen based around the vibrant Yangtze River delta. We had a good chat over lunch on the rapid developments in China and how businesses have to constantly keep up with times. After lunch, I visited Envision, a smart energy solution provider. China is the world’s largest electricity consumer, which makes energy efficiency a key priority. Artificial intelligence, the internet-of-things, and big data are significant pieces contributing to the smarter use of energy. In the same spirit as our #SmartNation initiatives, we can learn from China in using smart solutions to improve energy efficiency for a more sustainable future. Later in the evening, I went on a #jalanjalan along the iconic Bund. Enjoyed taking in the sights along the boardwalk and soaking in the buzz of this exciting and happening metropolis! – LHL ([1] PMO Video by Chiez How; [2] Photo by me; [3-5] MCI Photos by Fyrol)

A full and fruitful day at the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2018. Many leaders spoke on similar themes: openness and innovation to keep up with changing times. President Xi Jinping declared that China is committed to multilateral trade and economic cooperation, and will step up its liberalisation efforts to contribute to an open and inclusive global economy. Had a good meeting with President Xi after the Conference. We exchanged views on regional and international developments. We reviewed the progress of our three G-to-G projects, and discussed new areas of cooperation. Also met Austrian Chancellor @sebastiankurz and Dutch @MinPres Mark Rutte. Am now in Shanghai, the last stop of my China visit. Will be meeting the new Shanghai Party leadership, as well as both local and Singaporean businessmen tomorrow. – LHL #Boao2018

A busy day in Beijing. Called on Vice President Wang Qishan in the morning and congratulated him on his new appointment. We exchanged views on China’s strategy and priorities, and how our relationship has progressed with the times. After the meeting, I visited China’s top ride-hailing and AI company Didi Chuxing. China is leading the way in technological innovation and adoption of environmentally-friendly smart city projects. There is much to learn from their experience beyond e-payments, for example in customised urban transport solutions. In addition to electric bicycles, electric buses are fast becoming a common sight in major cities like Beijing and Shenzhen. Hope to apply some of these ideas to our #SmartNation push back home. Am now in Hainan for the Bo’ao Forum for Asia taking place tomorrow. Looking forward to good exchanges with my counterparts. – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Had good meetings with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang today. Glad to witness the signing of two MOUs between Singapore and China, which will see expanded cooperation between us on both economic and cultural fronts. Our friendship with China goes a long way back, and we continue to share a close and complementary relationship today. May our bilateral relations keep thriving and attain new heights! – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)

Am back in Beijing! I last visited in September 2017, just before the 19th Communist Party of China (CCP) National Congress which took place in October. Will be travelling to Hainan and Shanghai over the next few days, meeting Chinese leaders and businessmen (local and Singaporean), and also attending the Bo’ao Forum for Asia. – LHL (Enjoying the fine weekend weather at Tiananmen Square. / MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Our “Little Red Dot” may be well-regarded now, but it didn’t happen naturally or by chance – Singapore is a nation by design. Design was my theme yesterday at @sutdsg, but this was not the only thing students’ minds. They questioned me about AI, data privacy, politics, and even about my former teachers! Afterwards I met some of the students, and was glad to find them not just book-smart, but also involved in community service, environmentalism and entrepreneurship. Look forward to seeing the young people of today reimagine, redesign and rebuild the Singapore of tomorrow! You can watch my speech and dialogue on the PMO YouTube channel.

Attended the @pafrenz (PA) board meeting today. There was a lot to discuss, so we were late for the reception with grassroots leaders, volunteers, activists, community partners, and PA staff – thanks to all for waiting! Glad to chat with the guests, and learn about their service and work for the community. I am always impressed by the energy and passion of our activists. They are involved in so many activities, helping communities bond, running programmes for the elderly, looking after migrant workers, training residents for emergency preparedness, and so much more. Thank you for making a difference! Singapore is a better home because of your contributions. – LHL (MCI Photos by LH Goh)

Enjoyed the opening performance by Siong Leng Musical Association last night at Singapore Chin Kang Huay Kuan’s (SCKHK) 100th anniversary. The melodious Nanyin, the oldest form of Chinese music originating from the southern Fujian Province, was accompanied by the dance and song of the Sri Warisan Som Said Performing Arts group. It was an enjoyable treat for both ears and eyes! The SCKHK works with local community partners to care for our seniors, and keep traditional values and culture alive among the young. Since 2008, the SCKHK youth group has been organising activities for young people. These efforts go a long way to bring society closer together. My warmest congratulations to the SCKHK! May you remain steadfast in preserving our cultural heritage and building a caring society. (MCI Photos by Kenji Soon)

Today is Good Friday and the start of the Easter weekend. It is a holy time for Christians as it marks the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Caught this tranquil moment one evening on a #jalanjalan earlier this year. The Cathedral of the Good Shepherd is Singapore’s oldest Roman Catholic church, and a national monument. Its restoration was completed in 2016, and it won @urasingapore’s Architectural Heritage Award last year. It is worth a visit, to see the beautiful building and learn about its history. I hope those who celebrate Easter have a blessed time. It’s also a long weekend, so I hope all of you can spend time with family and friends! – LHL (Photo by me)

Took a #jalanjalan last weekend to catch the @ilightmarinabay festival. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one out and about enjoying the light installations and trying to get that Instaworthy shot! #iLightMarinaBay has been an annual event for a few years now. Besides letting local and international artists delight visitors with interactive artwork, it also reminds everyone to adopt sustainable habits, as the installations use energy-saving lighting or environmentally-friendly materials. The festival ends this Sunday on 1 April, so do check it out this long weekend if you haven’t already. – LHL (Photos by me)

Had a delightful time at the Ki-bies (short for kids and babies) Carnival in Sengkang South yesterday. Good to see young ones and families bonding through the games and activities. :) Residents will enjoy more sports facilities when Fernvale Square is completed in late 2018. My thanks to Gan Thiam Poh, the Jalan Kayu Joint Temple members, residents, and volunteers for working hard at this. – LHL ([1-3] Photos by me; [4] MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

@myscdf has had a busy week, responding to three big fires at Defu Lane, Pulau Busing, and Kranji Crescent. The massive inferno involving an oil storage tank on Pulau Busing was particularly complex. SCDF had to transport equipment and resources from the mainland to this offshore island. The operation required the combined efforts of 128 SCDF personnel, and coordination with the @singaporepoliceforce Coast Guard, Maritime and Port Authority, @singaporenavy, and @nea_sg. Many of them were National Servicemen. Fortunately there were no casualties in any of the incidents. I’m sure you’ll join me to thank SCDF and the other agencies for a job well done! – LHL (Pulau Busing fire./ SCDF Photo & Video)

Today is World Water Day, reminding us that water is a precious and critical resource for everyone. Singapore relies heavily on our numerous reservoirs for our water supply. The largest of these is the Marina Barrage. A dedicated team from @pubsingapore keeps the Barrage in good working order 24 hours a day, every day. Tonight, prominent landmarks near the Barrage (including The Flyer, Gardens by the Bay, the Esplanade, and the Sports Hub) will be lit up in blue to mark World Water Day. Do support this by using water only when you need to, and cherishing the clean water that is readily available in Singapore. – LHL (Photo by me) #MakeEveryDropCountSG

A pleasure catching up with former US President @barackobama over dinner today. Mr Obama made a brief stopover here to meet young ASEAN leaders and give a lecture. A lot has happened since we last met at APEC 2016 in Lima, so we had much to talk about. Happy to hear that he is busy working with his foundation and other charities. The best part about life after the presidency – more time with family and friends! – LHL (MCI Photo by Terence Tan)

Am back home! I’ve had two fruitful days at the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit. We focussed on security and prosperity, which matched ASEAN’s priorities to strengthen our resilience and boost innovation. We discussed enhancing security links, taking advantage of smart technology to improve lives, and enhancing our trade relationship. Australia is one of ASEAN’s oldest and most substantial partnerships, and I’m glad we found more ways to work together. My deepest appreciation to PM @TurnbullMalcolm for his hospitality to all the ASEAN leaders over the past few days. Looking forward to meeting again soon! – LHL #ASEANinAus ([1] Photo by @vivianbalakrishnan; [2] Photo by Chwee)

Whenever I travel, I try to meet overseas Singaporeans to see how they’re doing, and renew ties with them. These events are always a good opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones, and talk about latest happenings back home! (You can take a Singaporean out of Singapore, but you can’t take the Singapore spirit out of the Singaporean. :) ) Australia is a particularly warm place to do this, as lots of Singaporeans are here, whether for work or studies. Our partnership with Australia is one of the most intense connections we have – we cooperate in so many areas, but it’s our close people-to-people relationship that binds it all together. – LHL (PMO Video by Alex Qiu)

The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are oft-photographed landmarks, but a different perspective can always bring new life to a subject. This can apply to bilateral ties, too! Singapore and Australia have a long history of working together. But new challenges, like planning cities for future generations, open up new areas of cooperation. Enjoyed meeting with our Australian counterparts in Sydney yesterday, and reviewing the progress of our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. We had a good exchange of ideas and experiences in building smart, liveable cities, to bring improve lives for future generations. Looking forward to co-chairing the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit with PM @turnbullmalcolm on Sunday to take the partnership forward. – LHL ([1-2] Photos by me; [3] Photo by Chwee) #ASEANinAus

G’day from Australia! The iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge take on a different energy after dark. Even after the sun sets, Sydney keeps moving - just like Singapore! Singapore and Australia share much in common: our societies are open and diverse, our peoples are direct and practical, and we both want a peaceful and stable Asia Pacific. Will be in Sydney over the next few days for the Singapore-Australia Leaders’ Summit, as well as the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit. We’ll be discussing the things we have in common, and moving our relationship forward. – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee) #hotelwindowview

A happy 50th anniversary to the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute! Honoured to deliver the ISEAS 50th Anniversary Lecture yesterday. After my lecture, I held a dialogue with the audience, moderated by Professor Tommy Koh. ISEAS was one of the first research institutes the Government set up after we became independent. It focussed on studying Southeast Asia, at that time still a troubled and unstable region. Our founding fathers recognised that Singapore’s fate was intertwined with the region’s, and that we needed to deepen our understanding of regional issues. A year before ISEAS was born, five countries, including Singapore, came together and formed ASEAN. The original objective was political – to create a regional platform for dialogue and cooperation in a turbulent time. Today’s Southeast Asia is very different from 50 years ago. ASEAN has brought peace and stability to Southeast Asia. Now with China and India growing, the strategic balance is shifting. As we feel our way forward in a new situation, ISEAS continues to play an important role enriching our collective knowledge of the region, and enhancing mutual understanding among our ASEAN partners. I wish ISEAS every success in its next 50 years! – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Happy to welcome Bangladeshi PM Sheikh Hasina to the Istana today. Singapore and Bangladesh are longstanding friends, with rich cultural links and growing economic ties. Singapore is home to many Bangladeshis who contribute much to our economy and multicultural society. Bangladesh is a popular destination for Singaporean investors. I told Sheikh Hasina that the poet Rabindranath Tagore, who composed the Bangladesh national anthem, once visited Singapore. Tagore Avenue is named in his honour, and is in my constituency! Look forward to pursuing greater cooperation with Bangladesh. – LHL (MCI Photo by LH Goh)

Visited Bedok Reservoir-Punggol and Paya Lebar divisions in Aljunied GRC yesterday morning. Met many residents at a wellness centre, the Hainanese Village Centre, a community fiesta, or just going about their Sunday morning activities. Ended my visit with a dialogue session. Thanks to all grassroots leaders who attended for sharing your ideas and feedback, not just about Aljunied but national issues too. Victor Lye, his fellow grassroots advisors, their team of activists and volunteers have been working hard serving residents. My heartfelt thanks to them. Keep up the good work! I hope residents support them to continue doing their best for the Aljunied community. – LHL ([1-2] MCI Photos by Fyrol; [3-5] MCI Photos by Terence Tan)

Enjoyed my dialogue with members of 2018 @ypoglobal EDGE yesterday. This is the second time Singapore is hosting this annual conference of young CEOs from around the world. Many questions touched on this year’s theme – “Defy Convention”. The specific issues we discussed varied – leadership succession, #SmartNation policies, and Singapore’s future challenges. @_ideaink drew an on-the-spot graphic recording of what I shared at the conference. They made me look decades younger by giving me a full head of black hair! – LHL (MCI Photo by Chwee)

Today is #InternationalWomensDay, celebrating our female family and friends. I meet many inspiring women at events, and even when I go #jalanjalan. I can’t feature all of them, but here are a few, from Nanyang schools alumni and staff (top left), to the group photo at the bottom right – taken at the Botanic Gardens with 7 sisters (and a friend)! Women typically juggle many roles, so a single day in tribute of them is definitely not enough. The Government will continue to improve the lives of women, such as through the recently announced enhanced Work-Life Grant. Once again, a happy International Women’s Day to all the women in our lives! Why not tag someone in the comments below to share the good wishes? – LHL (Photos by me) #facesofSG

The #ChineseNewYear period may have ended last Friday, but I had one last celebration with Teck Ghee residents and grassroots leaders yesterday! I hope everyone had a good time. Besides updating residents on the improvements in Teck Ghee, I also spoke about the topic on everyone’s lips – the GST hike and why this was necessary. The Government has been able to make such long term plans thanks to the strong support and mandate by Singaporeans. Together, we can continue to build a better home for ourselves, our children and grandchildren for many years to come. Once again, 祝大家狗年兴旺、身体健康、心想事成、万事如意!– LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Today is Chap Goh Mei, the 15th and last day of Chinese New Year celebrations. It’s also known as the Spring Lantern Festival (not to be confused with the lantern light-ups during Mid-Autumn Festival). Traditionally, houses and streets would be decorated with lanterns, sometimes with riddles attached for people to solve. The lanterns, usually red, represent prosperity and good fortune – which I hope Singapore will enjoy for many years to come. Wishing everyone a happy Chap Goh Mei! 祝大家元宵节快乐!– LHL (Photo by me)

Celebrated an early Chap Goh Mei dinner with MPs, community leaders, and guests at the Istana last night. The actual day isn’t until this Friday – so there’s still time for one more lo hei! The #YearOfTheDog will be a busy one. The Budget debate starts today, followed by the Committee of Supply. After that, Parliament will prorogue for a mid-term break, and re-open in May. The President’s address at the opening of Parliament will set out the Government’s programme for the rest of this term. I am asking the fourth-generation Ministers to draft the Government’s agenda for the President’s address. It will give Singaporeans a better sense of them and their thoughts. I will reshuffle the Cabinet after Parliament prorogues, to give the younger members more exposure and responsibility. This way, my successor will be supported by a stronger and more experienced team, committed to leading Singapore to a better and brighter future. – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)
