On heritage, ST (1 Mar, p H8) and ZB (1 Mar, p10) highlighted Minister's announcement that NHB will devote $2 million each year to train professionals in heritage research and conservation, and support new cultural tourism services and exhibitions, to reach out to foreigners and Singaporeans. He supported MP Fatimah Lateef's suggestion to tap on the heritage potential of Geylang. ST quoted Minister's light-hearted remark earlier that he thought Geylang "is one part of Singapore that required the least publicity on our effort."
