In appreciation of Dr Riady's support, the Labour Movement of Singapore has renamed the NTUC Auditorium at One Marina Boulevard, NTUC Centre, to Stephen Riady Auditorium @ NTUC. The newly named auditorium was unveiled at a ceremonial event led by NTUC President Mary Liew and NTUC Secretary-General Chan Chun Sing

The donation forms part of the $25 million that the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) has raised to date, aimed at advancing the professional development of Singapore's workforce through subsidised education and training opportunities.

"Everyone can acquire new knowledge and skills through education and continuous learning. I am pleased to support the mission of the NTUC Education and Training Fund to equip the working population in Singapore with relevant skills for the future economy," said Dr Riady.

The Labour Movement will continue to reach out to more donors in the coming months as it works towards the target of injecting a total sum of $200 million into the NETF.
