It was recently announced Wong Kan Seng has now been appointed as a Special Advisor for Economic Co-operation to the Prime Minister, covering programmes with China and other Asian countries. Wong will also be made chairman of Singbridge, a wholly owned Temasek Holdings company which invests in and manages integrated projects such as Guangzhou Knowledge City project, the Suzhou Industrial Park, Tianjin Eco-City and Bangalore International IT Park. With all that travelling to do, it looks like the baby sitting will have to be outsourced. Former Singbridge chairman Mr Lim Chee Onn will be stepping down a couple of rungs to make way for Wong and redesignated Senior International Advisor .
