5 Key Contributions and Landmarks By Former President of Singapore Mr S R Nathan


 
Writing,Government
Former President of Singapore Mr S R Nathan was born in Singapore on 3 July 1924, he was the youngest of 2 older brothers. His father, V Sellapan committed suicide as a result of mounting debt due to the Great Depression in 1930s. Mr S R Nathan was only eight years old at that time.

As a child, Mr S R Nathan received his primary school education in Anglo-Chinese Primary School and Rangoon Road Afternoon School. After primary school, Mr S R Nathan progressed to Victoria School. Due to the Japanese Occupation during World War II, he did not complete his secondary education. Nevertheless, he managed to complete his secondary education and made further progress in his education. Eventually, he graduated from the University of Malaya with a distinction in Diploma in Social Studies.

Mr S R Nathan started his civil service career as a medical social worker in 1955. He rose through his career to be the deputy secretary in Ministry of Foreign Affairs, followed by the Ministry of Home Affairs in 1966. Between 1979 to 1982, Mr S R Nathan served in the Foreign Ministry as the First Permanent Secretary. He took a break from civil service and took up various director positions in high-profile local companies such as Singapore Mint and Singapore Press Holdings.

The Former President served as Singapore's High Commissioner to Malaysia followed by Singapore's Ambassador to the United States between April 1988 to June 1996. In August 1999, Mr S R Nathan was first elected as the President of Singapore, to date he is the first President to have served two terms of his Presidency. He left the President's office on 1 September 2011 and his successor is current President of Singapore, Mr Tony Tan.

Mr S R Nathan's health took a turn for the worse as he suffered a stroke in July 2016. On 22 August 2016, the Former President passed away leaving behind his wife Urmila Nandi, their daughter Juthika and son Osith, and three grandchildren.

Let us take you through 5 key contributions and landmarks the Former President has achieved us in his glittering career

1.The Laju incident that happened 42 years ago should be the among the most remembered event in the history of Singapore. Mr S R Nathan was among the group of government officials who volunteered to be taken hostage and flew to Kuwait to secure the release of civilian hostages held by terrorist group Japanese Red Army and the Popular Front for the Liberation. The event demonstrated the bravery inside the Former President.

2.Mr S R Nathan served as ambassador to the United States during the Michael Fay incident in 1994. Under pressure from United States and the US President-then Bill Clinton, our Former President dealt with international pressure firmly and diplomatically.

3.The President's Challenge was founded in 2000 by the Former President. Already into its 17th year, this yearly project has raised over $100 million for over 500 beneficiaries.

4.At the height of the Global Financial Crisis in 2009, Mr S R Nathan became the first president to approve the use of the country's reserve to fund new measures that brought Singapore out of recession swiftly.

5.He is the only President that has been honoured with the Order of Temasek (1st Class). The other 2 recipients are Mr Suppiah Dhanabalan (Former Chairman, Temasek Holdings) and Mr Yong Pung How ( Chief Justice, Supreme Court).

On behalf of everyone at http://www.propertyconnectx.com, we wish to pay our tribute to our Former President. A word of thank you may not sum up everything you have done. Your legacy will leave in the hearts of all Singaporeans
