STB is deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Othman Wok, who served as STB's (previously STPB) Board Member.

​​​ All of us in STB are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Othman Wok and we extend our heartfelt condolences to his family. Formerly the Minister for Culture and Social Affairs in 1966, Mr Othman helped put Singapore on the forefront in the field of international sport. He was instrumental in the establishment of the 55,000-seater National Stadium in 1973, and oversaw a number of successful sports projects, including the Singapore Grand Prix. After his retirement from politics, he continued to play a strong supporting role in Singapore’s tourism developments, serving as then-STPB’s Board Member from 1981 to 1994. We mourn his passing, but we are confident that his legacy will live on.
