Their was pointed out by the secretary-general of the People’s Power Party (PPP), Mr Goh Meng Seng, who said, “What is this NONSENSE! Singapore is termed as “Oversea Province ” of China?!”


The mistake was first shared online by netizen Alvin Teo.

This is not the first time Singapore has been wrongly termed, as earlier this year, the transcript of United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s remarks at a press briefing has listed Singapore as part of Malaysia.


Netizens who commented on the post had a laugh, saying that this error has happened in Singapore many times before, so it should just be shrugged off.
