    Chee Koon was presented with the Business China Young Achiever Award by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in 2017, for his contributions towards strengthening Singapore-China relations through Ascott. In 2016, he was also conferred the prestigious National Order of Merit (Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite) by the President of the French Republic for Ascott’s contributions to France.
