Racial Harmony

Kudos to our neighbouring country, Singapore, in promoting racial harmony. They walk the talk. In order to integrate the society, the government has started a new organisation called OnePeople.sg, which was lauched by the Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong.

It's aim is to bring Singaporeans of all races, religions and language together in one accord by raising awareness of other cultures, being sensitive and understanding when interactin especially on the inter-racial and inter-faith issues.

It did mention that "the minorities will get to keep their heritages alive with further integration executed in schools, neighbourhoods and workplaces so that Singaporeans have ample opportunity to grow up together, live together and play together.” (source: The Star)
