Letter from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison
19 May 2019
Dear Prime Minister Morrison,
Warmest congratulations on the Coalition’s well-fought victory at Australia’s federal elections, and on your election as Prime Minister!
Singapore and Australia share a robust and longstanding relationship, and cooperate closely across a broad spectrum of areas including defence, trade, science and innovation, and people-to-people exchanges. Our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership has deepened significantly in recent years, and I look forward to continue working with you to strengthen existing links, and to explore new areas of collaboration such as in the digital economy. I hope that you will be able to visit Singapore officially this year to attend the annual Singapore-Australia Leaders’ Summit so that we can discuss these issues further.
I wish you the very best of health and success, and look forward to seeing you soon.
LEE HSIEN LOONG
The Honourable Scott Morrison MP
Commonwealth of Australia
