Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong (Lifetime Achievement)

After graduation, Mr Goh joined the Administrative Service in the Economic Planning Unit in the Prime Minister's Office of the Singapore Government.  In 1967, he graduated with a Master of Arts in Development Economics from Williams College, USA.  In 1969, he joined the national shipping company Neptune Orient Lines, and was its Managing Director from 1973 to 1977.

In 1976, then Minister for Finance, Hon Sui Sen, persuaded him to stand for elections for a seat in Parliament. He won in Marine Parade, and remains a Member of Parliament (MP) there.  Soon after, he was appointed Senior Minister of State for Finance, as part of the government’s plan to groom the next generation of leaders.

Between 1979 and 1990, Mr Goh served as Minister in the Ministries of Trade and Industry, Health and Defence.  He was appointed Deputy Prime Minister in 1985, and succeeded Mr Lee Kuan Yew on 28 November 1990 as Singapore’s second Prime Minister.  As Prime Minister, he espoused a kinder and more consultative government. He set in motion social policies aimed at addressing income inequality and strengthening the social fabric of the nation. He steered the nation through major economic, security and health crises, including the SARS pandemic, Jemaah Islamiyah threat, and Asian Financial Crisis.

He actively broadened and deepened the Republic’s diplomatic ties. In recognition of his contribution to bilateral ties, Mr Goh was conferred the Knight Grand Cordon (Special Class) of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant (Thailand) in 1997, the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding in 2004, the Honorary Companion of the Order of Australia in 2005, and the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun in 2011.

Mr Goh stepped down as Prime Minister in August 2004 to renew the leadership of the country.  He remained in the Cabinet as Senior Minister, and was Chairman of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) from August 2004 to May 2011.  Upon leaving Cabinet in 2011, Mr Goh was given the honorary title of Emeritus Senior Minister, and appointed as Senior Advisor to MAS. In 2017, he was asked to chair the governing Board of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

Mr Goh’s longstanding interest in community well-being translated into active support for research in the social sciences.  He advocates the importance of bridging policy-making and practical actions in society, and uses his constituency, Marine Parade, as a test-bed for implementing social measures to advance the interests of the elderly and the vulnerable, needy residents.   Thus started his association with the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ Social Service Research Centre, which he first mooted and continued to serve as an advisor.

Mr Goh’s academic awards include: Honorary Doctor of Laws (Williams College, USA, 1995), Eminent Alumni Award (NUS, 2005), Honorary Doctor of Laws (University of New South Wales, Australia, 2005), Honorary Doctorate for Business Administration (University of Pretoria, South Africa, 2008), and Honorary Doctor of Laws (NUS, 2015).
