Prime Minister's National Day Rally Speech 2001
the Singapore team successfully climbed Mount Everest in
1998, I cheered. I spoke to Khoo Swee Chiow and his
told me that they climbed up in stages, from Base Camp to
Camps 1, 2, 3 and 4, before they made their assault for the
summit. The climb became more difficult and dangerous the
higher they went. The air became thinner and the slope
steeper. You had to be disciplined, determined, and well
prepared. And you had to have luck on your side. There could
be avalanches and rock falls, or the weather could change
suddenly. Swee Chiow told me that the most important quality
needed to climb Mount Everest was mental strength.
climb up Mount Everest provides a vivid image for
Singapore’s own climb up the mountain of economic
Minister brought Singapore up to Camp 2 – from labour
intensive to electronics and higher value-added industries.
In the last 10 years, we have climbed higher to Camp 3, with
wafer fabs, chemicals, and financial services. Now, we are
making our way to Camp 4, to do IT, life sciences, and other
knowledge-based activities. If we make it to Camp 4, we can
then try to scale the summit where countries like the US,
Japan and Switzerland are.
let me warn you. As in the Mount Everest climb, the going
will get tougher from here. As we go higher up the mountain
of economic development, progress will be slower. We will
not see the same high growth rates as in the past. We will
have to work smarter and acquire more sophisticated
capabilities to overcome complex challenges. We will be
tempted to relax. Indeed, some Singaporeans have asked:
"Do we need to be Number One in everything?" We
will need great mental strength to continue pushing
ourselves to excel. If we do not do so, others now behind us
will push us off the track.
I want to focus on this next stage of our economic climb.
