WHAT RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE SPEECHES AND PRESS RELEASES DATABASE?

The database consists mainly of ministerial speeches and press releases that were transferred to the National Archives of Singapore from the former Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Information and The Arts (MITA), Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts (MICA) and the current Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI). These speeches provide insights into the thoughts and policy directions of Singapore's political leaders and throw light on Singapore's concerns and challenges.
