Celebrating 40 Years of Sustaining Stability, Serving Singapore

MAS celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2011. A series of events commemorating the occasion took place throughout the course of the year, culminating in a Roundtable and Anniversary Dinner held on 28 November 2011. Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Chairman of MAS, hosted the Roundtable. Distinguished participants from central banks, the financial industry and academia shared their perspectives on global and regional economic and financial developments, under the theme “Global-Asia Dynamics”.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was the Guest of Honour at the Anniversary Dinner, where MAS hosted senior representatives from central banks, local and foreign financial institutions, academia and the public sector. The highlight of the Anniversary Dinner was the launch of MAS’ 40th Anniversary Book, which offers insights on MAS’ policies and thinking over the past four decades and our vision for the future.

As part of the celebration, MAS also organised a charity drive involving a heritage walk and a vertical marathon to raise funds for the Community Chest. Forty copies of the special-edition 40th Anniversary Book, autographed by the Chairman of MAS, were also presented to the Community Chest.
