SMF was honoured to organise the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Day Combined Rededication Ceremony 2024 (East Zone) on Monday, July 1st, 2024, at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. This event's success was a testament to the dedication of our organising committee and valued partners.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Minister for Defence Dr. Ng Eng Hen for his inspiring SAF Day speech. We were also privileged to have Chief of Defence Force VADM Aaron Beng, Chief of Army MG David Neo, and Chief Armour Officer COL Lim Han Yong for gracing the event.

Mr Dennis Mark


Minister Ng Eng Hen, SMF President Mr. Lennon Tan and CEO Mr. Dennis Mark 麥榮良 touched on the continued importance of the SAF and National Service (NS), especially in today’s increasingly volatile geopolitical environment, as well as the enduring partnership between the SMF and the SAF in fostering a strong and resilient nation. They highlighted the crucial role of the manufacturing sector in supporting national defence and security, emphasising the need for continuous collaboration and innovation to meet evolving challenges.

Dr Ng referenced the late Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew's statement, "Without security, progress and economic development are impossible." This central message, conveyed to senior military commanders of the Singapore Armed Forces in 2012, remains relevant and significant today.

As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Total Defence, today’s event served as a powerful reminder of the SAF’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding our nation. The SAF's dedication to protecting Singapore's sovereignty and security is a testament to the strength and resilience of our people.

The SMF is proud to have played a part in organising this rededication ceremony, reaffirming our commitment to Total Defence. We remain steadfast in our support for the SAF and our shared mission to build a stronger, more secure Singapore.
