SINGAPORE - Big-picture issues such as climate change, the economy and the importance of pre-schools were the topics discussed by Malay community leaders, volunteers and youth at a dialogue on Sunday .

"I think this is a great sign, a good sign that our leaders in our community are able to articulate and be more concerned about longer-term issues that are as important as the bread and butter issues that we face," said Mr Masagos, who is also Minister for the Environment and Water Resources. Mr Masagos kicked off the session by recapping three main areas of the National Day Rally speech by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Aug 18: forging a Singaporean identity, looking for opportunities in turbulent times, and preparing for climate change.

What sets the Malay community apart from others is the Singaporean identity that is a common thread among all races and religions here, he said.
