Sports And Arts Remain Vital: Lawrence Wong

3 Aug

SINGAPORE – Sports and the arts will be vital aspects of the work of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) when it is set up in November, its Acting Minister-designate Lawrence Wong assured.

In fact, new resources will be sought for sports and the arts where possible, even as funding and existing projects continue, Mr Wong said in a brief meeting with reporters at the MICA Building, where his future ministry will be sited.

He reiterated Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s comment on Tuesday that the MCCY does not explicitly identify the areas of sport and the arts only to keep its name reasonably concise.

Mr Wong, who is also Senior Minister of State for Education, added that the University Education Pathways Committee is on track to submit its recommendations to the Government by the end of this year.
