Abstract

We are bound together by the Singapore idea but it is not easy to define what exactly constitutes it. It involves both the heart and the mind, and probably includes aspects like good governance, civic responsibility, honesty, strong families, hard work, a spirit of voluntarism, the use of many languages and a deep respect for racil and religious diversity. George Yeo, as Singapore's Minister of Information and the Arts (Yeo 2000, 25).
