Lawrence Wong pledges more press conferences as part of government's effort to improve public communication; MCI to be renamed

SINGAPORE: &nbsp, Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong has pledged to carry more press events so that the government you better connect its” thinking and factors” to the consumer when he publicly takes over as Singapore’s third prime minister.

After announcing his new Cabinet lineup two days before he will take the oath of office as the next Prime Minister, Mr. Wong said the government generally held press conferences to inform the general public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At one point, regular press meetings were held to provide the public with frequently updated information on the COVID-19 incident and the most recent pandemic control measures.

Mr. Wong claimed that he found these lessons “useful,” despite the fact that he has no ideas to keep press conferences with such consistency.

” I’m not planning to do it like that, please do n’t misunderstand”, he said.

From time to time,” when there’s some fresh innovations, new thinking”, he said it would be beneficial for himself or appropriate officials to meet with the internet in a media event.

“( This is ) just to share our thinking, just to let you know what is happening, and through you, explain the government’s thinking and considerations to the public at large”, he said.

Mr. Wong further explained the justification for changing the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI)’s new name to” MDGDDI,” which he claimed was” not just a renaming exercise.”
