Lee Kuan Yew (1923 - 2015)

Former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and founding father of modern Singapore passed on peacefully on 23 March 2015. Germany will always remember him as a great statesman and a trusted friend.  Germany was one of the 13 countries, which first recognized Singapore diplomatically shortly after it gained independence from the Malayan Federation in August 1965. Since then, the relationship between Germany and Singapore has continously strenghtened. Many mutual visits of head of states from both countries are a clear expression of this long-lasting friendship.

Germany and Singapore - Celebrating 50 years of bilateral relations

In August 1965, Singapore left the Malayan Federation due to economical, political and ethnical divergencies. The small island became the independent Republic of Singapore. The Federal Republic of Germany almost immediately took up diplomatic relations with the city state. As a consequence, the hitherto German Consulate General was upgraded to an Embassy. To celebrate 50 years of bilateral relations the German Embassy and its partners have organized a number of events.
