Prime Minister Lee was given a rousing welcome by the MILO® Kids ambassadors from Yio Chu Kang Primary School when his entourage visited the MILO® booth at the fiesta. At hand to welcome Prime Minister Lee was Mr Suresh Narayanan, Country Manager of Nestlé Singapore who explained MILO®'s strong sporting heritage in developing champions since the 1950s to the guests.
Mr Cheng Ding An, movie director of the Kallang Roar é Movie then took these VVIPs through the highlights of the movie and everyone got a sneak peek of the movie when the enthralling movie trailer was screened. The cast of the Kallang Roar were also at the booth to welcome Prime Minister Lee. The tour at the booth climaxed when Prime Minister Lee, ministers and VIPs penned their support on soccer balls to further encourage MILO® to continue to play an active role in championing sports development in Singapore.
