#18 – The Eight Immortals of Singapore’s Civil Service ( A conversation with Peh Shing Huei)

Singapore’s pioneer generation of political leaders, known as the Old Guard, are well known in our history. However, the civil servants who oversaw the implementation of policies and projects during that era have largely been forgotten. In fact, eight individuals were so influential they were known as the eight immortals: George Bogaars, Andrew Chew, Hon Sui Sen, Howe Yoon Chong, Lee Ek Tieng, Ngiam Tong Dow, JY Pillay and Sim Kee Boon. Today, we speak to Peh Shing Huei, editor of the book The Last Fools: The Eight Immortals of Lee Kuan Yew on their stories & lessons for civil servants today.
