Deputy PM Truong Hoa Binh spoke highly of the fine development of the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Singapore over the years, noting bilateral relations have flourished in various areas, from politics and diplomacy to economics, culture, and education-training, according to VOV.
Economic cooperation is a bright spot in bilateral relations, he said, adding Singapore is now one of the leading foreign investors in Vietnam. The system of Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Parks (VSIP) industrial parks has been increasingly expanded and it has brought about good results.
