On March 23, 2015, Singapore's founding father Lee Kuan Yew died at the age of 91. He had served 31 years as prime minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990. When Lee left Singapore, per capita GDP was $14,000, his reputation was gilt-edged and an entire tier of second-generation leaders lined up to take over when he stepped down in 1990. Overcoming many controversies, he rebuilt the economy of Singapore after the sudden pull-out of British forces. He was a great statesman. We bid goodbye to Lee Kuan Yew.
