Mr Lee and Mr Goh will each have one special assistant and one part-time press secretary, plus one secretary and two full-time clerical officers, said a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday.
The statement noted that Mr Lee and Mr Goh continue to make significant contributions to Singapore, especially internationally.
“They have strong personal relationships with many world leaders. Their views remain widely sought after by political and business leaders, prominent thinkers and the foreign media.
“From time to time they will travel overseas to meet leaders, engage investors, and speak at conferences. These activities raise Singapore’s international profile and promote our political and economic interests. Their staff will help them to carry out these functions,” it said.
