Lee Hsien Loong names his cabinet line-up 

Lee Hsien Loong takes over as prime minister of Singapore tomorrow. Yesterday, he named his cabinet line-up.

Interestingly to me, Mr Lee will remain as Finance Minister. Apparently, finance is an area which he sees as critical, and for which continuity is important.

Reinforcing the importance of finance is the fact that the outgoing prime minister Goh Chok Tong will replace Mr Lee as chairman of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The swearing-in of the new prime minister takes place tomorrow evening.
