The S Rajaratnam Endowment (SRE) was set up by Temasek in 2010, in conjunction with the 45th anniversary of Singapore’s independence, to recognise Singapore’s first Foreign Minister, one of our pioneering leaders. Its objective is to achieve development, peace and stability in the region by deepening international friendships, promoting regional cooperation, and fostering a greater and common understanding of international rules, based on the twin pillars of good governance and sustainability.
