Singapore is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its independence in 2015. It is a time to celebrate what we have been through as a nation, the little things that make us Singaporean and our hopes and dreams for the future. Singaporeans can look forward to a variety of national and community programmes in the year-long celebrations. They are also invited to plan and organise their own activities, which could be supported by the SG50 Celebrations Fund. To guide and coordinate the plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations, a Singapore50 Steering Committee has been formed, comprising representatives from the public, private and people sectors.
