On 16 February 2013, the NUS Economics Alumni gathered at Bee Heong Palace Restaurant for its annual Chinese New Year lunch. Staff of the Economics Department, alumni as well as mentors and mentees of the mentorship programme provided a rousing start to the lunch, tossing Yu Sheng into the air and shouting many good-luck wishes.
They then tucked into a sumptuous eight-course lunch and caught up with old friends as they chatted the afternoon away. Prof Julian Wright, Head of the Economics Department and A/P Victor Savage, Acting Director of Alumni Relations joined the alumni in the festivities too.
The lunch ended with Prof Wright presenting letters of appreciation to the committee members of the alumni and also welcoming its new chairman Mr Daniel Lo.
