Ms Fu has also been promoted to become a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office as part of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s cabinet ‘reshuffle’.
Speaking to the state-controlled media, Mr Shanmugam described Ms Fu as a ‘tremendous asset’.
“She’s effectively bi-cultural and would be very helpful in many areas and also we’re discussing with her, I’ve started speaking with her on how we can share responsibilities,” he said.
Mr Shanmugam added that Ms Fu will help in managing Singapore’s external relations in an “increasingly fluid and challenging regional and global environment”.
Ms Fu was lampooned a few months ago by netizens after complaining about her pay cut in the aftermath of the General Election last year.
