Lee pushes initiatives for a 'smarter, healthier' Singapore

Premier's annual speech promotes long-term nation building, ignores family feud

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong delivers his annual National Day Rally speech.

SINGAPORE -- Singapore must improve its early childhood education and health services and get up to speed on information technology, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong declared in his annual policy speech Sunday night.

"It is my government's duty to build for our future," Lee said in his address of more than an hour at the Institute of Technical Education in the Ang Mo Kio district of the city state. He made no mention, however, of the family feud that embroiled him and the nation recently.
