            “We welcome the successful conclusion of the elections in Taiwan on 16 January 2016 and congratulate Dr Tsai Ing-wen and her party on the victory.  As a longstanding friend, Singapore looks forward to maintaining our close relations and cooperation with Taiwan based on our consistent ‘One China’ policy.

            Singapore supports the peaceful development of cross-strait relations.  We hope that both sides will build on the hard-earned achievements over the last few years, and continue to engage in dialogue and mutually-beneficial cooperation for the benefit of the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.  These efforts will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the region which will be welcomed by all.”
