Education Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam hopes to see more activities that will allow Singapore students to interact with their counterparts in the region.

Speaking at a student camp for over 180 students from Singapore and Malaysia on Wednesday, he stressed that this will help break down barriers between the young people who share a common future.

Foo Hui Chian, a Malaysian student said: “Even though we’ve just met each other for a few days, we’re like good friends, we’re staying in the same dorm, we get along very well.” (story)
