Letter exchange between PM Lee Hsien Loong & DPM Heng Swee Keat

We need a leader who will not only rebuild Singapore post-COVID-19 but also lead the next phase of our nation-building effort. Having worked with you, ESM Goh Chok Tong and MM Lee Kuan Yew, I know that the top job imposes exceptional demand on the officeholder.
