“Taxi drivers, food delivery riders, and retail staff are just some of the many workers that keep Singapore going day and night, rain or shine. Their hard work and sacrifices allow us to go about enjoying the holidays with our loved ones.
Happy to meet some of our frontline workers this morning, on the eve of the new year, to exchange festive greetings and hear from them how they are coping.
Everyone has played a part in this pandemic, and I hope you find prosperity and peace as we gradually but surely adjust to living with COVID-19.
Wishing everyone a roaring Year of the Tiger ahead! – LHL”
