Kong Hee Huat Chye – Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong [ 李 显 龙 ] hoped “fervently” that Singaporeans would boost the city-state’s stubbornly-low birth rates in the coming Year of the Dragon. Superstitious Chinese believe children born during the Year of the Dragon [ 龙 年 ], the symbol of ancient emperors, will possess courage and wisdom and bring luck to the entire family. Lee Hsien Loong himself was a dragon baby born to Singapore First Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, in 1952. He was given a name with a dragon [ 龙 ] character in it.
