Vietnam’s Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan Phuc arrived in Singapore early this week for an official visit ahead of the 32nd ASEAN Summit. Nguyen Xuan Phuc made the official visit at the invitation of Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong. The visit was to celebrate the 45-year relationship between both countries since establishing diplomatic ties in 1973. The visit also marks the fifth anniversary of the establishment of the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Singapore in 2013. The visit proved to be a fruitful one as both, Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Lee Hsien Loong witnessed the signing of six Memoranda of Understanding on renewable energy, liquified natural gas development, environmental cooperation, trade, banking and financial innovation. Aside from that, they also held bilateral talks where they discussed regional and international issues.
