Philippines Alumni with Singapore Ambassador H.E. Kok Li Peng
The Singapore Embassy in Manila played host to a gathering of LKY School of Public Policy alumni on 14 July 2016. The gathering was graciously hosted by Singapore Ambassador H.E. Kok Li Peng, who thanked the alumni for their enthusiasm and challenged them to lead by example in creating positive social change. Around 40 alumni, including fresh graduates of the MPP, MPA, and MPM programmes, attended the LKY Connect event. Philippines Alumni Chapter President Judge Rowena Tan thanked the Ambassador for her hospitality and for Singapore’s support for the construction of a community library built in Haiyan-ravaged Eastern Samar, with funding from the Singapore Red Cross. The night ended with good food, drinks, and a lot of catching up, reminiscent of the many gatherings at the Oei Tiong Ham lobby and at College Green.
