The following upload caught the attention of Indonesian netizens. They highlighted the simplicity of the Singaporean PM's meeting table, which is considered to be different from what happens in Indonesia.

"Hello Sir, why in that meeting only provided with drinking water? In Indonesia, every meeting is accompanied by a lavish meal because the budget is very large," wrote the account @rthubraga. There are also those who consider the cabinet meeting to be experiencing a lack of funds and suggest reviewing their neighboring countries."

               

"Minimalis"

"The meeting is minimalist, your budget is not fully absorbed, sir. Learn from our neighboring country," wrote @wali_ulu. The netizens, who are suspected to be from Indonesia, also jokingly suggested PM Lawrence Wong to conduct a comparative study."

Because, netizens assess that Indonesian officials often use luxurious equipment and facilities when conducting a meeting. "Are there no snacks? Where are the drinks? They say it's a developed country, how come there's no budget for that? Regarding the budget for meetings, sir, can you send a team to our country for a benchmark study?" wrote another netizen.

There are also netizens who commented that Singapore PM's meeting is very simple and minimalist, only with a cup of coffee or tea.

He then compared the expensive snacks and drinks, as well as the luxurious and sophisticated facilities, with the high prices in the Indonesian government officials' meetings. Some even commented that Singapore is considered a developed country but does not seem luxurious in holding meetings.

"What kind of cabinet is this? A country with the strongest passport in the world and the largest GDP in ASEAN, its meeting table is clean. Where are the assistants? Where is the luxurious banquet? Where is the expensive tablet? Where are the hi-tech items that are only used for their presentations? You all pale in comparison to the Indonesian cabinet, Mr. Wong! 😂," wrote @bstirv. It is known that Lawrence Wong has officially become the Prime Minister of Singapore, replacing Lee Hsien Loong, after being inaugurated on Wednesday night local time.

Lee Hsien Loong will join Wong's cabinet as a senior minister. Lee will hold the position together with Teo Chee Hean. Lee previously announced his resignation effective one month from April 15, 2024. He then recommended Wong to President Tharman as his replacement.
