Torch Parade – Lighting up the Marina Bay
As one of the main partners, Deloitte was invited to be part of the SEA Games Torch Parade yesterday at The Promontory@Marina Bay.
Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong was the Guest of Honour and he lit the official SEA Games torch which was subsequently passed on to six torch-bearers for a parade that saw the flame travel 2.5km, passing through iconic areas in Marina Bay such as Clifford Square, Merlion Park, The Float at Marina Bay and the ArtScience Musuem before it was retired for the night.
Philip Yuen, Singapore Country Managing Partner, Ernest Kan, Singapore Clients & Markets Leader and Seah Gek Choo, Talent Partner represented Deloitte in the torch parade and participated in the mass walk together with colleagues from the Clients & Markets team.

In line with Deloitte’s commitment to “Youth & Education” causes and as part of the SG50 celebrations, Deloitte supported "Go50 - A Nation in Motion” on 3 June - Day 49 of 50 days of 50km daily run.
