PM Lee commends WP chief Low Thia Khiang’s Parliamentary Speech

Amid heated budget debates and a resounding public outcry on the GST hike announcement, it is heartwarming to see some bipartisanship in parliament.

In a Facebook post on Saturday evening (Mar 3), our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong commended Worker’s Party secretary-general Low Thia Khiang’s parliament speech.

In his post, PM Lee stated Low’s speech was “cogent and balanced, firmly based on Singapore’s interests and perspectives”.

Additionally, he added that “it was a dispassionate assessment, by a Chinese-educated Singaporean, of the rise of China”.

Low, a Chinese educated Singaporean – the minority in parliament – delivered a brilliant speech in parliament highlighting the rise of China and how it affects Singapore’s future strategies.

He praised our incumbent government for its future planning and identifying critical changes to the world in the future, meanwhile stressing the importance of our economic strategy in allowing us to hold our own in a changing world.
