It’s not known if there would be any conflict of interest by appointing Heng’s wife to lead a statutory board.

For example, if the government decided to cut its fiscal budget so as not to risk a GST increase but Mdm Chang firmly opposes any cuts coming from NHB’s side, would her husband, Minister Heng, back down?
