Visit to Hanoi, Socialist Republic of Vietnam - Aug 2023
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong made an official visit to Hanoi, Socialist Republic of Vietnam from 27 to 29 August 2023 at the invitation of PM Pham Minh Chinh.
PM Lee’s visit reciprocated PM Chinh’s official visit to Singapore in February 2023. The exchange of PM visits coincided with the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations and 10th anniversary of Singapore’s Strategic Partnership with Vietnam.
PM Lee called on PM Chinh, as well as Communist Party of Vietnam General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, President Vo Van Thuong, and Chairman of the National Assembly Vuong Dinh Hue. PM Chinh hosted PM Lee to an Official Dinner. PM Lee also laid a wreath at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
During the visit, PM Lee and PM Chinh attended an event on the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP) where they witnessed the virtual ground-breaking ceremony of several VSIPs, as well as the presentation of the investment licenses for new VSIPs.
Both leaders also met students from the Vietnam National University, and engaged participants from the inaugural Singapore-Vietnam Youth Leaders Exchange (SVYLE) programme.
