Singapore's leaders will not waver on two core beliefs even as they continue striving for success, Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said on Wednesday.

These are that everyone must have a role and stake in the success, and that the key to future success lies in developing the young.

"How we go about pursuing excellence will change with time and conditions, but what must not change is our belief that success must be shared, both in the making and the partaking, by all in our society," he said at a book launch by former civil service chief Lim Siong Guan.

"Nor do I see us changing our deep belief that the road to future success lies in developing and growing our young to their fullest potential."
