The Singapore Lecture is designed to provide an opportunity for distinguished statesmen and leaders of thought and knowledge to reach a wider audience in Singapore. The presence of such eminent personalities allows Singaporeans, especially younger executives and decision-makers in both the public and private sectors, the benefit of exposure to leading world figures who address topics of international and regional interest. The 40th Singapore Lecture was delivered by His Excellency François Hollande, President of the French Republic, on 27 March 2017 under the distinguished Chairmanship of Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies, Singapore.

"When Special Operations Executive was set up in the summer of 1940, Singapore seemed far from any likely war zone. But Lt. Colonel Alan Warren was sent there in early 1941 to take charge of all SOE operations in the Far East. His job was far from easy as both the native population and the military saw little purpose in his mission. Yet a year later Britain's empire in the Far East had collapsed like a pack of cards, suffering disaster at sea and on land. This is the story of that year for the Orient Mission (the name given to this section of SOE) as this small number of men tried desperately to achieve results against the Japanese advance through Asia"--Page 4 of cover.
