Hopes for Chinese New Year Jan 28, 2003

It seems appropriate to quote this excerpt from a BBC Monitoring report:



Lee Kuan Yew’s hopes on the Chinese New Year.

In his message to the nation on the Chinese New Year, reported by Singapore Radio on 28th January, the Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, pointed out that only 26,000 Chinese babies had been born in the year that was ending, the Year of the Tiger. He expressed the hope “that we can do better in this Year of the Rabbit”.
