THIS year's National Day Rally speech will be delivered by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday, Aug 21, at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
A statement from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said that Mr Lee will speak at the following times:
- 6.40 pm to 7.30 pm - Malay and Mandarin
- 8.00 pm to 10.00 pm - English
The rally will also be broadcast on local TV channels and radio stations.
Singapore's feedback unit, REACH (reaching everyone for active citizenry @ home), will be collecting feedback on Mr Lee's speech from Aug 21 to Sept 4.
Feedback will be sought via face-to-face dialogues, as well as listening points to online platforms such as Twitter and "live" Facebook chats.
Said REACH: "For the first time, REACH will be organising 'live' Facebook chats incorporating a video element. A panel of chairpersons will respond to Singaporeans' questions and comments posted on the 'live' Facebook chats verbally via video. These chats will be streamed in real-time on Facebook."
