Titan 2 centuries Lee Kuan yew
Who died in Singapore on the night of Monday 1st Prime Minister of this country's Lee Kuan yew to the last days was considered the most respected and influential politician in Asia and in the world - besides the narrative is at the same time on the 20th century and this century.


Premier Li was not only the most productive in modern history politician of the era (made his country economic sample even owned For once her UK), but also a prominent global ideologue, nonstop formulated the principles of the arrival of the Asian century "replacement" century West." Economic miracle " of China, confidently facing Today on the role of first economy and, perhaps, the first powers of the world, was consciously modeled from Singapore and supported by the boards of several Singaporean Directors, including himself.

The per capita GDP of residents in Singapore (purchasing power parity) is in the year 60, 6 thousands of U.S. dollars, making Singapore the third most flourishing country in the world according to the analysis by the IMF and fourth - world Bank (after Qatar and Luxembourg, in one version and Macau, Qatar and Luxembourg on the other). However, in no country Of the current "leaders prosperity" success is not associated with the personality of one man, and a bit where the gap between the source and the current point of development is so great. This situation is reflected in the title of one of the books premiere of Lee: "From the 3rd world to the 1st ".

since the establishment of Singapore as an independent country in 1965 specialists, and the then head of the local administration Lee Kuan yew believed that the separate existence of a small city-island-state without any natural resources economically impossible.

Today, among other things, Singapore is considered one of the world leaders in medical science - lived to 91 years, Lee Kuan yew and his son, current Prime Minister of state Lee Hsien Loong, many years ago cured from cancer, are examples.


A political dynasty Lee has ruled Singapore since 1959 (before the independence from the UK) with the formal break in 1990-2004, when Lee was a senior Minister in the government of Goh Chok Tong. Lee himself during his Premiership eight times won the national elections led he created the people's action Party. Voluntary transition in 1990, the year from top Executive positions to the role of a person who holds in practice, informal power, was copied in China in the era of Deng Xiaoping. Lee Kuan yew was the first world leader who has proved in practice that the immutability of the chief may, at our age to be a guarantee of stability and successful development from the outset poor nation. Political and economic practices of Singapore became a model For several other countries, most importantly in Asia that have achieved on the Singapore recipes " similar successes: South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and China finally.

In several books, many interviews and public lectures talked about the value of "success stories" of Singapore To other countries and civilizations, most importantly, For Asia. Around the views of the author "Singapore miracle" line up the views of many modern politicians and ideologues, including the theorists of " Asian values ".

note that Lee Kuan yew was well educated; he graduated from the London school of Economics and Cambridge University. It is known that Premier Li was deemed to limit the rigidity and discipline, demanding of themselves and others. The combination of these 2 qualities, perhaps, led him to thinking ability completely on their own, without succumbing to the economic and political concepts that are considered in one or the other point is undeniable.


in recent years, the dialogue between Russia and Singapore was very active and developed at all levels. Sam Lee Kuan yew went to Russia almost every year, high-ranking Russian officials, too, were frequent guests in Singapore. The main event in bilateral relations was the official visit to Singapore in November 2009, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's first visit to this Asian country at this level in recorded history of relations between 2 countries.

In this case, apparently, the intensive contacts between Russia and Singapore are not limited to ceremonial party and are based on mutual interests. No wonder Singapore became one Of the few countries that have close economic and political ties with the US, which has not succumbed to the pressure of the capital of the United States or entered against the Russian Federation punishment after the acute drop in the Ukraine.

Interest in continuing cooperation understandable. For Asian States to Russia - a very large and promising market. And Moscow attracts most importantly, the experience of structural reforms in Singapore for over 3 decades has managed to make the leap from the typical state of the 3rd world to a highly developed market economy. Problems, which then stood in front of an island nation, very familiar at the present time in Russia: the struggle against illegal activities of officials, the organization of public service, transparency, economic activity, infrastructure transformation. It is for this reason that Russian officials - Federal and municipal levels - with pleasure addressed and to present, try to learn from Singapore's experience, know-how Lee Kuan yew and his followers from financial and economic reforms before the construction of roads.
