Why Commemorate 1819? Reflections on Singapore Bicentennial
This event is open to everyone, and will have an educational focus. We will be exploring the life history of Sir Stamford Raffles and his relevance to the Singapore Story, the importance of British-Singapore friendship and what it means for us today.
We are featuring three great speakers who will share their perspectives on this. They are:
Daniel Hannan, who is a Member of European Parliament and who authored the best-selling book “How Britain Invented Freedom”. He is a great public speaker and will speak about British history and its impact on the world and its place in the world today.
Professor Razeen Sally, who is a political economist from Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, researches into the global economy and world trade. He will share about the importance of the Singapore-British economic relationship and what it means today.
Bryan Cheang, who is the Founder and Director of the Adam Smith Center. He will go through the life and times of Sir Stamford Raffles and look at how relevant it is to the Singapore story and Singapore identity.
This event is made possible by our event partners, Tanglin Trust School and the British Chamber of Commerce.
