PM Lee has announced that SG will "appropriately" commemorate 200 years of the founding of SG by Sir Stamford Raffles. a Singapore Bicentennial Office has been set up by garment to look into the activities for 2019, but will be smaller scale than SG50. 

 

 

S’pore to 'appropriately' commemorate its bicentennial in 2019, says PM Lee

SINGAPORE — The Republic will "appropriately" commemorate the 200th anniversary of the landing of Sir Stamford Raffles when the "important milestone" is reached in 2019, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

 

Noting that Singapore had marked the 150th anniversary in 1969, Mr Lee said in his New Year message on Sunday (Dec 31) that the bicentennial is an occasion for Singaporeans to "reflect on how our nation came into being, how we have come this far since, and how we can go forward together".

 

As Singapore approaches its bicentennial, there have been spirited public discussions about whether the occasion should be commemorated, and in what ways. Some felt that it would be inappropriate to celebrate the country's colonial past, while others believe it is an opportunity for younger Singaporeans to learn about the country's history and multicultural roots.

 

 

S’pore Bicentennial in 2019 to recapture historic events from 720 years ago

 

https://www.todayonl...s-720-years-ago

 

SINGAPORE — As the country prepares to face future challenges, it is important for Singaporeans to grasp its history, which goes back to 1299 at the least, and to understand the struggles in the earlier years.

 

This is what the Singapore Bicentennial in 2019 will aim to do: Offer a window into this past and what made modern Singapore possible, veteran historian Tan Tai Yong said at a press briefing last week.

 

Professor Tan is an advisory panel member for the anniversary event, which will mark 200 years since Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in Singapore in 1819.

 

Though it is billed as the "prequel" to Singapore's Golden Jubilee (SG50) in 2015 — meaning the events that paved the way for SG50 — the bicentennial will be on a "far smaller scale", Mr Gene Tan said. Mr Tan is the executive director of the Singapore Bicentennial Office, which was set up in the last quarter of this year, along with a 16-member advisory panel that includes Prof Tan, former senior parliamentary secretary Yatiman Yusof, film director Kelvin Tong and lawyer Sujatha Selvakumar.
