SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong gave out the first of some 450,000 Pioneer generation cards on Friday evening, and promised there will be a "very big effort" to distribute the rest by the month's end.

The printing company, Medialink Printing Services, and SingPost have been working extra hard to produce, pack and deliver the packages, he said.

Mr Lee thanked about 100 pioneers, at an event at the People's Association headquarters near Lavender, for their contributions to Singapore.

"This is our way of saying 'thank you' for building Singapore," said Mr Lee.
