All Singaporeans born next year will be issued a special edition birth certificate with a commemorative mark as part of the Jubilee Baby Gift bundle to celebrate Singapore's 50th birthday.

This was a suggestion of many members of the public, and the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore is supportive of the idea, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Grace Fu told reporters on the sidelines of a community event in Yio Chu Kang.

A booth had been set up at the Mother's Day Carnival at Yio Chu Kang Community Centre to encourage people to vote for items that should go into the Jubilee Baby Gift.

Voting, which can be done online at the Jubilee Baby Gift site, will close on Thursday.
