Vietnamese Ambassador to Singapore Mai Phuoc Dung on July 13 presented his credentials to Singaporean President Halimah Yacob who expressed her delight at the comprehensive development of the ties between the two countries in all fields, especially since both sides lift up relations to a strategic partnership in September 2013.
The President congratulated Vietnam on its successful performance as the ASEAN Chair in 2020, during which the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) was signed.
She said that Singaporean investors are keen on expanding investment in Vietnam, especially in areas of Singapore’s strength such as digital transformation, 4.0 technology, green growth and education.
She said she hopes Vietnam will control Covid-19 soon so that the two countries can recover traveling, creating favorable conditions for their investors and tourists to enter each other’s country. She revealed that Singapore is scheduled to vaccinate 70 percent of its population against Covid-19 by late this August and gradually re-open its border.
