It’s my privilege to be called upon to lead this team: Lawrence Wong

Following the announcement of the news that he is the leader of the 4G team, Finance Minister Lawrence Wong took to Facebook to say that it’s his privilege to be called upon to lead this team and he will do his utmost to uphold this responsibility.

He said that he’s humbled and grateful for the trust and confidence of my colleagues.

He also took the opportunity to remind everyone Singapore’s model of political leadership.

“From the very beginning in 1959, our model of political leadership has never been about one person, but the team. Each of us contributes, complements each other, and gives our best to Singapore,” he wrote.

He also revealed that the two years fighting Covid-19 has cemented the 4G team’s cohesiveness and strengthened their resolve to steward Singapore safely through this crisis and beyond.

“But as we have been reminded many times, the right to lead cannot be inherited. Together with the rest of the 4G team, I will continue to serve Singaporeans wholeheartedly, and strive to earn the trust and support of each and every one of our fellow citizens.”
