J.M. Jumabhoy served as the Minister for Commerce and Industry from 1956 to 1959, and was a minister in the Labour Front government, Singapore’s first elected government. In this clip, he talks about a futuristic idea David Marshall had conceptualised, of Singapore being an open city, one where people from all around the world congregated for large-scale conventions, trade, and international discussions. At that time, it was an idea that was ridiculed, but today, we see that it has materialised.
