Chee Hong Tat Appointed to MAS Board of Directors

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Board of Directors has appointed Chee Hong Tat, Singapore’s Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Finance. The appointment, made public on May 2, 2024, will take effect on June 1 and last for three years, ending on May 31, 2027.

Chee’s nomination is part of a more extensive MAS Board reorganization. In addition to Chee, five current board members have been reappointed. These include Mr. Alvin Tan, the Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Culture, Community, and Youth, and Heng Swee Keat, the Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies.

Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, a former National University of Singapore president, will leave the MAS Board on May 3 after serving his final term. Tan was a vital member of the Board Risk Committee and was named to the MAS Board in June 2012.

The MAS Board chairman, Lawrence Wong, expressed his sincere gratitude for Professor Tan’s services during the previous twelve years. He emphasized that Tan would make a great contribution to the MAS Board because of her ability to think clearly and approach complicated issues from a systems perspective.

The MAS Board, which will take effect on June 1, will consist of Lawrence Wong, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance; Heng Swee Keat – Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies and the Deputy Prime Minister; Gan Kim Yong, the Minister of Trade and Industry; and Chee Hong Tat, the Minister of Transport and Second Minister for Finance.

Following his nomination as the full Minister for Transport in January 2023, Chee’s appointment to the MAS Board represents a key career turning point. His experience and knowledge in finance and transportation are anticipated to benefit the MAS Board.

As the central bank of Singapore, the MAS is essential to advancing the country’s economic stability. The MAS is fortifying its leadership group with these board changes, guaranteeing that it will always be in a solid position to handle the intricacies of the world financial scene.
