Indranee Rajah, Senior Minister of State for Finance and Law, says that Singapore’s lawyers and legal experts should contribute to shaping international laws, since these laws affect the country as a whole.

At the conference for the International Law Year in Review, attended by more than 200 officials, lawyers, and diplomats and organized by National University of Singapore’s Centre for International Law, Ms. Indranee reiterated that since global statutes and laws have a hand in regulating what each country is allowed to do within its borders, these laws profoundly affect Singapore’s citizens as well.

Ms. Indranee said, “The impact of international law on Singapore’s domestic economic and social life will continue to grow. Singapore must ensure that not only our national interests, but also our values, traditions and perspectives are brought to the table.”
