Tribute to Mr C V Devan Nair

I wish to give tribute to the late Mr C V Devan Nair.

Mr Nair was the secretary general of the National Trades Union Congress in 1970, when NTUC Income was founded.

He provided great leadership to the trade union movement during its formative years. He was also a source of inspiration and a pillor of support to NTUC Income during our early years.

I met Mr Devan Nair when I joined NTUC Income in 1977.

Mr Devan Nair later served as President of the Republic of Singapore. After relinquishing this office, he left Singapore and resided in USA for many years. I last met Mr Nair in Boston in 1993.

Mr Nair passed away in USA a few years ago.
