In 2016, The Singapore Hardware and Tools Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary. A grand celebration was held at the Marina Bay Sands and attended by many of our members. The event was also graced by Senior Minister of State for Trade & Industry and National Development, Dr Koh Poh Koon.
I am honoured to be elected the President of the Singapore Hardware and Tools Association, one year after in 2017, the association's 51st year of formation.
It is a heavy responsibility to take over the management of an established association representing member companies in the hardware and tools trade in Singapore. I would like to thank all the members for their support.
I would also like to thank the immediate past president, Mr Yong Wai Khuan, for his effort in leading the association for the past 12 years. He has done well in promoting closer member interaction and harmony through the various activities organised by the association.
Moving forward, I will strive to continue the good work done by previous presidents, and also evolve the association to remain relevant in today's modern economy.
I would like to wish all members prosperity and good health in the year ahead.
