The SG50 Partnership Committee is urging more companies, including SMEs, to take part in the nation's 50th birthday celebrations next year.

SINGAPORE: The SG50 Partnership Committee is urging more companies, including small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to take part in the nation's 50th birthday celebrations next year.

Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing who is advisor to the SG50 Partnership Committee said: "Whether it is an SME, a micro-enterprise, or even an individual effort like some of the sole proprietors, I think everyone has a special story to tell. They can either work individually or as a team to bring an idea to fruition."

He was speaking to the media at the third SG50 Engagement and Networking Session on Tuesday (Aug 26). The event was attended by over 1,000 people from various companies and industry associations.

One SME that is taking part in the SG50 celebrations is Ayam Brand. Besides producing one million limited edition sardine cans next year, it is also inviting the public to take part in a design contest, where winners may get to see their designs printed on that iconic can.
