C

ongratulations on the launch of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCCI) SG50 Exhibition. SCCCI and its members have played an important part

in the building of Singapore. Founded more than a century ago, SCCCI has established itself as the leader of the Chinese business community. The Chamber supports its members by helping them develop competencies, explore new business opportunities and connect to the wider global Chinese business community. SCCCI is also nurturing a new generation of bilingual business leaders who can operate both in Singapore and abroad. I commend the SCCCI’s efforts to promote Chinese language and culture, and foster social harmony in our multiracial and multi-religious society. This is something unique to Singapore and SCCCI. I am confident that you will continue to do so, and do it well. May the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, which has thrived for more than a century, continue to play a vital role in Singapore’s nation-building.

MESSAGE 蔡其生 新加坡中华总商会会长

加坡中华总商会从1906年创办至今,已经有109年 的历史。在历史的长河中,总商会的航船跨越风

浪,自始至终维护华社和商家的利益,与社会福祉息息相 关。在新加坡的建国历程中,总商会是见证者,也是参与 者。早在1966年,建国总理李光耀就曾说过:“新加坡中 华总商会的历史反映着新加坡的历史。”这句话高度概括 了总商会早期所走过的道路,也凸显了总商会与时并进的 使命感。 新加坡建国之前,总商会照顾华族福利,兴教办学, 协助维持地方治安,赈灾筹款,支持中国辛亥革命和抗日 战争,发起筹建日本占领时期死难人民纪念碑,祭奠遇难 的各族同胞。在新加坡争取独立时,锲而不舍,冲破层层 阻力,为华人争取公民权,最终惠及各个种族。建国后, 总商会善用多年累积的商贸网络,全力推动经济发展,招 商引资,促进新加坡与其他国家的经济联系。同时,总商 会也积极支持国防建设和讲华语运动,努力协助本地企业 提高科技应用水平,通过创办世界华商大会,扩展新加坡 的经济网络,把全球华商汇聚在一起。 在庆祝新加坡建国五十周年之际,总商会举办历史 展,不仅能够让社会各界更加全面地了解中华总商会在建 国前后留下的历史脉络,同时也能倡导追求卓越,回馈社 会,造福民众的华商精神,鼓励年轻一代继承前辈为国为 民服务的精神。迈入新的时代,总商会的命运将更密切地 与国家的命运结合在一起,新加坡的未来,就是中华总商 会的未来!

MESSAGE Thomas Chua President of Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry

S

ince its establishment in 1906, the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry has accumulated a history of 109 years. Despite weathering numerous storms throughout its long history, the Chamber has always adhered to its mission of upholding the interests of the Chinese business community. During Singapore’s journey of nation-building, the Chamber was not only a key witness but a zealous participant. Founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew once said in 1966: “The history of the Chamber is a reflection of the history of Singapore.” This statement encompasses the path taken by the Chamber in the early years, and highlights the Chamber’s mission of progressing with the times. Before Singapore gained independence, the Chamber looked after the welfare of the ethnic Chinese community, established schools, maintained territorial safety, raised funds for disaster relief, and supported the Chinese Revolution and anti-Japanese war efforts. In particular, the Chamber was the key driving force behind the Civilian War Memorial, a monument dedicated as a proper resting place for all victims who perished during the Japanese Occupation. During Singapore’s pursuit of self-government, the Chamber relentlessly fought to attain citizenship rights for Chinese immigrants in Singapore, and in the process, also attained citizenship rights for all other local immigrants. After Singapore achieved nationhood, the Chamber gradually withdrew from the political arena, and concentrated on promoting trade and investment to expand Singapore’s links with other countries. At the same time, the Chamber supported the building up of our National Defence and the Speak Mandarin Campaign, helped local enterprises to step up on technology adoption, and founded the World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention to expand Singapore’s economic network and congregate the global Chinese community. As Singapore celebrates 50 years of independence, the Chamber has organised this history exhibition, not only for the public at large to understand the contributions of the Chamber pre and post-independence, but to impress upon them the Chinese entrepreneurial spirit of pursuing excellence, giving back to society and sharing the fruits of prosperity. As we step into a new era, the Chamber’s destiny will become even more closely linked with that of Singapore, for Singapore’s future is the future of the SCCCI!

Foreword

前 言

说新加坡河的发展是新加坡历史的写照,那么,上百年 前创立于新加坡河畔的中华总商会(简称总商会),就是

新加坡历史长河的一面倒影。 1966年,建国总理李光耀曾说:“新加坡中华总商会的 历史,反映着新加坡的历史”。总商会作为华商的最高代表 机构,不仅维护国内华族商家的利益,也积极地协助推动新 加坡经济、社会、教育、文化等各方面的发展,尤其是1965 年独立建国后,总商会更是孜孜不倦地,持续在各领域上服 务全民,五十载与国家风雨同渡。

I

f the development of the Singapore River is the portrayal of the history of Singapore, the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce that was established more than a hundred years ago in the environs of the Singapore River would undoubtedly be the reflection of Singapore’s history. As Founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew once said in 1966, “The history of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce is a reflection of the history of Singapore”. Besides promoting the interests of the Chinese business community as the apex Chinese business organisation in Singapore, the Chamber actively promoted the development of community, education and culture. Especially after Singapore gained independence in 1965, the Chamber continued to provide assistance and services to every citizen, braving turbulent times alongside the nation over these 50 years.

819年,英国人莱佛士开拓新加坡,鼓励各地人士包括 早期定居南洋的土生华人前来经商定居。19世纪末20世

纪初,新加坡已从原来的渔村发展成为国际贸易商港,吸 引了大批华南地区的穷苦民众飘洋过海前来讨生活,而成 立于这个时期的总商会,其主要任务便是协助华商通商, 让华族移民在本地安顿下来。 新加坡中华总商会于1906年初成立,创会初期入会华 商就达600余人,他们皆为当时新加坡的重要商人及华社 各界领袖。英殖民地时期,总商会除维护华商利益外,也 领导华社、关照本地华人,推动社会与经济和文教发展; 当时,殖民政府通过商会争取民心,而商家和人民则借助 总商会向殖民政府反映民意。

n 1819 when Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore, he encouraged people from all places, including local Chinese who settled in Nanyang in the early days, to settle down in Singapore. From the late 19th century to the early 20th century, Singapore had flourished from a fishing village to an entrepot port attracting poor immigrants from China to seek a living here. Established during this period, the two main missions of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce were to assist businessmen in their trades and to help Chinese immigrants settle down. When the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce was set up in early 1906, it gathered some 600 Chinese businessmen who were important merchants and leaders of the Chinese community. During colonial rule, besides protecting the interests of Chinese businessmen, the Chamber also took on the responsibility of leading and caring for the local Chinese community and the development of culture and education. The colonial government gained the trust of the Chinese community through the Chamber while the Chamber served as a conduit to reflect the views of the local Chinese business community to the colonial government.

uring the Japanese Occupation, activities at the Chamber came to a halt. After the war, the Chamber swiftly took on the responsibility of stabilising the economy, rebuilding our homeland, fighting for citizenship rights for people of all races and protecting the interests of the Chinese by fighting for the right to participate in the legislative assembly elections and opposing the legislature language clause. The Chamber also carried on the tradition and spirit of building schools, giving its fullest support in promoting education. When Singapore attained self-government in 1959, the Chamber gave strong support to the government’s industrialisation policy which set the foundation for Singapore’s economy. From 1963 to 1965, when social unrest was widespread in Singapore and Malaysia, the Chamber worked with the Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and the Singapore Malay Chamber of Commerce to help restore social order.

The service is attended by ambassadors, religious organisations, business and clan associations, uniformed groups and veterans’ league, students and families of the victims, in remembrance of the victims who perished during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore.

1960年代中期,蓬勃发展的新加坡海港。 The flourishing Port of Singapore in the mid-1960s. Shipping has always been a vital lifeline of the Singapore economy. However, the shipping conferences set up during the colonial era had been monopolising freight rates, with adverse repercussions on trade in Singapore. In 1964, the Chamber led the rubber trade in Singapore and Malaysia on a boycott in protest, forcing the Straits/ New York Conference to call off their intended increment. In 1967, the Chamber again brought up the freight rates issue, wanting to break the monopoly of the freight conferences. By the early 1970s, the bargaining power of Singapore and Malaysia businesses against dominant shipping conferences had increased due to this concerted Chamber-led movement. This demonstrated the Chamber’s collective efforts in negotiation and its ability to deal effectively with the government, industries and international business networks.

开埠以来,船运一直是新加坡的经济命脉。但殖 民时期成立的船运公会却长期垄断船运载费,严 重阻碍我国转口贸易的发展。1964年,总商会 带领新马树胶界进行抗争抵制,迫使海峡及纽约 航运公会取消涨价。1967年,总商会再度提出 船运公会费率课题,要求打破船运公会对运费的 垄断。直至1970年代初,这项商会领导的运动 增加了新马商家对西方航运业讨价还价的资本, 突显出总商会集体交涉的力量,以及与政府、商 界和跨国商业网络之间的互动能力。
