The eldest son of a Shell employee, Mr Lee had a long-standing relationship with Shell. He was instrumental in getting his government of the day to attract multinational companies like Shell to locate their Asian headquarters in Singapore. When the inaugural Singapore Shell Traffic Games was held in 1958, he was on hand to present prizes to the student champions. At our 120th anniversary celebrations in 2011, he addressed a range of questions at the Shell dialogue, including one on his perspective of life. Over the decades, Shell has benefited from his stewardship.

We express our deepest condolences to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his family.
