Ambassador Catherine Wong Siow Ping thanked Minister Nguyen Chi Dung for taking the time to welcome her and highly appreciated the relationship between the Embassy of Singapore and the Ministry of Planning and Investment, which had strengthened Vietnam and Singapore cooperation relationship in the last few years.

Singapore is currently the third biggest foreign investor in Vietnam. This is an outstanding achievement, showing that the Singaporean business community believes in Vietnam’s market. Singaporean investors are now looking for more opportunities to invest in Vietnam, especially in such new fields as innovation, smart cities and start-ups. These fields also match the Government’s development priority.

Ambassador Catherine Wong Siow Ping congratulated the Ministry of Planning and Investment on the inauguration of the National Innovation Center (NIC) in Hoa Lac, Hanoi and believed that many Singaporean enterprises would like to be a partner of NIC in near future.

Minister Nguyen Chi Dung agreed and highly appreciated Ambassador Catherine Wong Siow Ping's opinion on the cooperation and relationship between the two countries over the years, especially on the connection between the two economies in science and technology and innovation. He also congratulated Ambassador Catherine Wong Siow Ping for successfully completing her term of office in Vietnam and wished her success in the next position and to continue making contributions to the development of Vietnam and Singapore.

Singapore is an important partner of Vietnam in the region and in the world, especially in economics, trade, investment, tourism, culture and politics. Both countries always support each other in the world market. The relationship between two countries has never been as good as now. Singapore is an important partner in trade and investment, making numerous contributions to the socio-economic development of Vietnam. Vietnam owns land, labour, human resources and favourable geographical location while Singapore possesses technology, capital, experience in management, etc. This creates excellent conditions to enhance investment cooperation and to bring benefits for both countries, Minister Nguyen Chi Dung emphasized./.
