Singapore leaders pay tribute to late banking tycoon Wee Cho Yaw

According to Education Minister Chan Chun Sing, Mr. Wee “made major contributions” to the training industry, inspiring many individuals from all walks of life.

In a Facebook post, Mr. Wee stated that he was renowned for both his organization skills and his charitable deeds.

He “made contributions over the years to our schools and different educational activities, such as the Nanyang Junior College Zhong Zheng Ren Scholarship, the Wee Cho Yaw Future Leaders Award program, and Hokkien Huay Kuan associated schools.”

The Lee Kuan Yew Centennial Fund, which aims to develop younger officials and help poor pupils in Singapore, received donations from UOB and the Wee home as well.

Mr. Wee was referred to as a “great advocate of knowledge, generosity, and community services” by C president Ho Teck Hua.

He claimed that over the years, the banker, along with Wee Foundation and UOB, have given the college S$ 16 million ( US$ 119 million ). This was done to support the development of education and research, to provide financial aid to kids from underprivileged background, and to develop potential leaders.

According to Professor Ho,” Those who have had the chance to socialize with him consider him as a kind man who was always willing to listen to young people and offer them his advice.”
