SINGAPORE - The Future of Us exhibition at Gardens by the Bay has drawn 200,000 visitors since it opened on Dec 1, Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat said in a Facebook post on Saturday (Jan 2).

The exhibition, one of the last events for Singapore's SG50 celebrations, welcomed its 200,000th visitor - a family of four living in Sengkang - at 8.15pm on New Year's Day.

Mr Heng, who is also chairman of the SG50 steering committee, said the parents, Hwee Ming and Audrey, had a simple wish for the future of their two children: that they will live healthy lives in a safe Singapore.

"A simple wish, that will take all of our dedication to make come true - not just for Jovan and Zeline but for all Singaporeans," Mr Heng wrote.

He also urged more Singaporeans to visit the exhibition, which is located just outside Bayfront MRT station on the Circle and Downtown Lines.

 

The Future of Us, a free exhibition envisioning what daily life in Singapore will be like in 2030, attracted 8,100 people on its opening day.

It has six interactive zones and looks at innovative developments in areas such as housing, healthcare and transport.

The public can book their tickets for the exhibition, which runs till March, a month in advance at www.thefutureofus.sg.
