Pioneer Generation Tribute

 Pioneer Generation Tribute

"About 450,000 seniors will benefit from extra subsidies for MediShield Life and outpatient treatment, as well as annual Medisave top-ups under the Pioneer Generation Package.

As one of the first Singapore 50 (SG50) events, the Pioneer Generation Tribute was held on 9 Feb 2014 at the Istana. Attended by over 1,000 members of our Pioneer Generation, the event was held to say ‘Thank You’ to our Pioneer Generation for their contributions in nation-building. These representatives of our Pioneer Generation included those who have served during the early years of Singapore’s nationhood in the uniformed services, unions and the community, former political leaders, and ordinary Singaporeans who contributed in many other ways and raised the next generation of Singaporeans.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced at the event that the Pioneer Generation will receive a Pioneer Generation Package that will be focused on healthcare. Wide consultations have shown that healthcare is at the top of the minds of older Singaporeans. The Package will provide benefits that cover different types of healthcare needs. All members of the Pioneer Generation will enjoy the Pioneer Generation Package.....For more details please see"

Some COT members were invited to Istana where the PM thanked the pioneers for their contribution. Among them were Ee Boon Lee, Mun Chor Seng, Chua Foo Yong and many others. I am pleased to attach herewith some photos of the event held at the Istana .
