Singapore is a symbol of modernity, perseverance, and a union of Eastern heritage and today’s innovation. In the midst of this all parliament house of Singapore stands as the pillar on which today’s Singapore was built.
On 22nd of January 2016, the Global Learning Committee of SP Jain School of Global Management arranged a trip to the Singapore Parliament House to familiarize its GMBA and MGB students of the values and principles the place stands for. Our guides for the day were not only knowledgeable of the significance of the place but also enthusiastic in imparting their knowledge. The tour started with a meticulous and thorough security check, an example of Singaporean efficiency and thoroughness. It then led to a short video of Singapore’s political history. It showcased the clear strategy and vision of the father of the nation, the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. We had always heard how important Mr. Lee Kuan Yew has been in the growth of Singapore. But we now truly understood the significance of his contribution, during this trip to the parliament house.
