Capable People Who Could be Ministers But Didn’t
Only recent examples, but there are more “gems” to be uncovered

Ho Kwon Ping
Ho Kwon Ping (53) is Executive Chairman of the Banyan Tree Group, which owns both listed and private companies engaged in the development, ownership and operation of hotels, resorts, spas, residential homes, retail galleries and other lifestyle activities in the region. Ho is also Chairman of the family-owned Wah Chang Group

In addition to his commitments with the Banyan Tree Group and Wah Chang Group, Ho is also Chairman of Singapore Management University, the third national university in Singapore; Chairman of MediaCorp, the national television and radio company; Board Director of Singapore Airlines Limited; Main Board Director of Standard Chartered Bank plc; member of the Singapore–US Business Council; member of Asia-Pacific Council, the Nature Conservancy; member of the Asia Regional Advisory Board of London Business School; member of the International Council of the Asia Society and member of the INSEAD International Council.

Prior to joining the Wah Chang Group in 1981, Ho worked as a journalist with the Far Eastern Economic Review. Ho's activist streak goes way back. He was a political radical in college, then he became a journalist. His articles for the Far Eastern Economic Review in Singapore rubbed the government the wrong way. And in 1979 he was jailed for several months under the Internal Security Act. After his release, he worked for the magazine for two more years, then decided to take over his father's commodities trading and construction company, Wah Chang/Thai Wah Group. He decided to diversify it, and settled on hotels.
His father, Ho Rih Hwa was then a prominent business and former diplomat (to Thailand).His mother was also a distinguish playwriter.

Note: Three names for the moment. But I’m sure there are plenty of “uncovered gems and talents” in Singapore that could serve the people well.

goh c t once said of joe pillay " he can stand up 2 any PM"

let me tel u may hv been approached 4 elections but they dun turn u down immd they gave polite ans like " children still young"

n i dare say if u serve when ur children r still young most probably u will be drifted away from them. being a minister/MP no joke u will 24 hrs a day nt enuff most probably e hse is 4 u 2 go bk n slp i think u c ur constituents more than ur family mbrs

who wana hold MPS til late @ nite past midnite ? wkends go mkts shake hands with ppl thankless jobs even grassroots leaders r swear @ (wad sorts of names they call us u noe i noe) behind all e glamour who noe wad we did? opp onli noe how 2 criticise high ministerial salaries, fat allowances MP enjoy ling h d cheo c c also serve 1 term Mp ask them wad they done 4 e ppl if they r so gd wont be defeated by ong a h n ang m s u wan ppl like them

let me tel u men like dhanabalan yeo n h n tony tan who hv returned 2 pte sector @ 1 time or another must hv felt their wkload much lighter than b4. well no denial tht dhanabalan n tony tan did return dhanabalan when lhl was ill tony tan when goh wana strengthen e cabinet. let me tel u when tony tan return goh asked if a pay rise was necessary (obviously tony tan must hv drawn more @ ocbc if nt y goh ask tht rite?) tony tan say no. u go tel opp find us more tony tans then i can tel u they cant even find 1.

Hi Wolong

Yes, I agree with you. Maybe, just maybe, that I've been to Meet-the-People sessions (MPS) to know that being a MP is no easy task. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to write the article on MPS, would I? haha.. ;)

Unfortunately and as I've always said, Singaporeans (especially the youths) are to apathetic about Singapore Politics (which I hope this blog can ease some misconceptions). This is a worrying sign. People are opposing based on the wrong reasons and misinformed knowledge.

But that is life, and that is democracy. Slowly but surely, I getting more disillusioned in the process of learn about politics and political science.

And to At82, Nope, I've not bought the WP manifesto as well. It is not like as if it is readily available at all local bookstore..haha. ;P

Cheers!
T

To Trasy:

Yup, so much for the publicity lol...

wads so diff 2 buy mon go 2 their hq @ slyed alwi rd thts it 2 troublesome u young 1 v high tech wad call email rite email la orrrrrr u dun wan 2 show ur face 2 them arrrrr lol
understand ok ok

To wolong:

aiya I think u get me wrong again la...

What i mean is WP generated some publicity with the launch but they din managed to capitalise on it by making the manifesto easily accessible to the general public.

I mean frankly how many S'poreans would spend $5 to buy it even they see the manifesto everywhere? Now the thing is that ppl dun even get to see it anywhere! U still expect them to go down to the HQ to buy meh?

In this scenario those who buy are already diehard supporters. Then this will defeat the purpose of the manifesto which to inform the general public what WP actually stand for. So the least they can do is to create high visibilty for the manifesto so as to increase the chances that ppl will buy it what...

wellllll dr chee bks r in bkstores 2 did many ppl buy? if u wana buy bks on opp go 2 select bkstores @ tanglin shopping ctr.

in the 1st plc if ur bks r defamatory u think bkstores dare 2 carry them? must i get a lawyer 2 go thru every word u write?

certain ppl like 2 defame e moment i c ur bks better dun sell

To wolong:

Whether alot of ppl buy Dr Chee's books is not the pt, the point is that Dr Chee's books are being much better marketed than the manifesto.

At the very least ppl can juz pick it off the bkshop if they decide to buy it on the spur.

Have a gd day!

I already disillusioned... :D

We are cooking a huge disaster.

At least that Ho KP can start as a journalist... I can't.

But if I were to be able to start as a journalist... I'd wanna be covering things in China... And I'd hope to be a journalist based there for as long as possible...

No wonder I can't be a journalist... I don't eat Bryan Trees... (kidding)

Aiyah... problemo. :D
