Paying Tribute to TPIHK’s Founding President

President Chan Kian Kuan and Board Members visited “Lee Wee Nam: Life and Times of a Philanthropist” Exhibition

Lee Wee Nam, Chairman and Managing Director of former Sze Hai Tong Bank Limited, was a highly respected community leader, a great philanthropist, and a strong advocate for education. He co-founded Singapore’s first school for Chinese girls, Ngee Ann Girls’ School and was ever the President of Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
