Dear Members and Friends

The tragic loss of so many lives in Christchurch, NZ last Friday reminds us just how dangerous extremist political and religious views are. A large part of Singapore’s exceptionalism is the racial and religious harmony every one of us contributes to and benefits from. This is something to cherish and never to take for granted.

Yesterday, I attended the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Inter-Religious Organization (IRO) in Singapore. Its visionary founders realized the importance of creating and nurturing common spaces where people of different faiths can meet and treat each other with equality and mutual respect. The need for the IRO is as important today as when it was founded. We are all so lucky to live in a country where people are free to practise their religion or to practise none. I congratulate the IRO for all that it continues to do to preserve common spaces to celebrate diversity, dialogue and the humanity that unites us all.

When you have time, visit IRO’s exhibition at Far East Plaza funded by Chamber member Far East Management Pte Ltd and be inspired to preserve our common spaces. http://iro.sg/

With warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
