Pay Comparison Between Singapore and Hong Kong Ministers

According to a 9 Jun 2008 source, there was an outcry on Hong Kong government over fat pay packets. The highest paid of all was said to be their Chief Executive Donald Tsang HK$334,758 (S$58,400) per month or S$700,800 per year.

From a 9 Apr 2007 source, Singapore ministers were said to get an exaggerating fat 60 percent pay hike. This hike was justified by the Singapore government as deemed necessary to keep pace with the private sector. With that, Singapore ministers will get an average of S$1.9 million a year. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is said to be receiving S$3.1 million which will be five times the US$400,000 that U.S. president George Bush earns.
