Proud of successful Trump-Kim summit

Singapore's successful hosting of the Trump-Kim summit will go down in history.

This little red dot has punched above its weight and showed the world how it can step up and do its part as a global player.

Our meticulous handling of the behemoth event, including security, resource considerations and cooperation across the government, and public and private sectors, undoubtedly left a lasting impression on the world stage.

Indeed, international news outlets have lauded Singapore as a country that can deliver and get things done with efficiency.

I felt a huge sense of pride to hear such praise.

The police, uniformed forces and transport and hotel staff who were involved in the summit must all be complimented.

They flew our flag high and made Singaporeans very proud.
