Penny Wong Australia Finance Minister
A Malaysian born ethnic Chinese Penny Wong has become the new Finance Minister of Australia:
I remembered that when Tan Siew Sin was the Finance Minister of Malaysia, we never hear of any financial scandals compared with what all the mega billions scandals that are currently being exposed. Will we ever see a Chinese Finance Minister ever again for Malaysia?
No I am not advocation Malaysia should have a Finance Minister because he or she is an ethnic Chinese, but what I dearly hope would be such an important post be solely based on merit, on abilities to manage the country's finance well. It does not matter what race or religion.
