Earlier today, Chief of new party People’s Voice Lim Tean took to social media to call out , the Chief Executive Officer of Temasek Holdings and wife of Prime Minister , for attending the meeting with Vice President of the People’s Republic of China . VP Wang was on an Official Visit to Singapore from November 5 to 7, and was hosted by PM Lee and his wife, along with other ministers.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), “Prime Minister Lee and Vice President Wang discussed the broad and substantial cooperation between our two countries which was built upon the strong foundations laid by earlier generations of leaders. They welcomed the conclusion of the negotiations to upgrade the China-Singapore Free Trade Agreement.”

“Vice President Wang also spoke about the developments in China. Both leaders exchanged views on key global and regional developments, including Sino-US relations, and expressed support for an inclusive, free and open, rules-based multilateral trading system”, the MFA said.

Netizens who commented on the post also were curious as to who the official point of contact for the Prime Minister’s Office was, with others speculating why she attended the meeting since it was in an official capacity.
