James Huang reportedly to be named representative to Singapore

The Presidential Office on Thursday declined to confirm a media report that former Foreign Minister James Huang (???) will be named Taiwan's new representative to Singapore.

The selection of representative office personnel is still being planned and will be announced as soon as it has been finalized, Presidential Office spokesman Alex Huang (???) said when asked to comment on the report.

According to Apple Daily, President Tsai Ing-wen (???) has decided to appoint James Huang, who currently serves as director of the New Southbound Policy Office under the Presidential Office, as representative to Singapore to fill the vacancy left by Antonio Chiang (???), who resigned last month before assuming the office amid controversy swirling around him for a drunk driving violation in Taipei.

Singapore will become the command center for the government's "New Southbound Policy," the paper said.
