Over the years, Mr Leong Sze Hian has written countless letters to the local press on issues which affect every Singaporean. These include the Central Provident Fund (CPF), healthcare, education, transport, housing, credit, the charities, employment and investment.

In this new book, titled “Issues That Matter: Uniquely Singapore – F1 or F9?”, several Nanyang Technological University (NTU) students put together 45 of Mr Leong’s published letters to the press, in 9 different categories. In both English and Chinese, the book is a treasure of information which will enable Singaporeans to look deeper and understand better the national issues concerning them.

Mr Leong, who is also the President of the Society of Financial Services Professionals and has been in the finance industry for 30 years, provides enlightening facts and asks provoking questions of the Government and private companies which many Singaporeans want answers to.

With a foreword by the former Chief Executive of NTUC Income, Mr Tan Kin Lian, the book is a must-read for every Singaporean who wants information which might have otherwise been unavailable.

Please do support this admirable effort by the NTU students and purchase a copy of it at major bookstores, including Kinokuniya and Borders Bookstores.


Here is a video with Mr Leong. In this 8-minute short film, Mr Leong speaks about a few issues which are highlighted in his latest book,

“Issues That Matter: Uniquely Singapore – F1 or F9”.
