About the speaker:

After a career in the Singapore Armed Forces spanning over two decades where reached the rank of Major-General and served as Chief of Army, Mr Chan entered politics in 2011.

Educated at the Raffles Institution and Raffles Junior College, Mr Chan was awarded the SAF (Overseas) and President’s Scholarship to study Economics at Christ’s College, Cambridge University, graduating with First Class Honours. In 2005, he completed the Sloan Fellows Programme at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under a Lee Kuan Yew Scholarship.

At MSF, he was responsible for improving social service delivery, enhancing social safety nets and strengthening support for families in Singapore. On 8 April 2015, the NTUC Central Committee unanimously elected him to be NTUC Secretary-General from 4 May 2015 to help strengthen labour leadership at NTUC and the link between the Labour Movement and the Government.
