           Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong met with PRC President Xi Jinping in Hamburg on 6 July 2017.  They last met when China hosted the G20 in Hangzhou last year. Prime Minister Lee congratulated President Xi on the 20thanniversary of the return of Hong Kong to the PRC under the “One Country, Two Systems” framework.  Both leaders affirmed the substantive bilateral relationship, frequent high-level exchanges and good progress made in bilateral cooperation.


            Both leaders discussed how Singapore could work with China to implement the Belt and Road (B&R) Initiative, including the Chongqing Connectivity Initiative, which has achieved good progress in financial services and aviation connectivity.  The B&R initiative will not only benefit regional countries economically but enhance China’s contribution to globalisation and regional development. They agreed that it was important to promote closer economic integration, through the expeditious conclusion of the China-Singapore Free Trade Agreement upgrade.  Both leaders discussed the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project and PM Lee welcomed China’s interest. Prime Minister Lee and President Xi also expressed their commitment to work together to promote closer ASEAN–China cooperation, under Singapore’s ongoing coordinatorship of ASEAN–China Dialogue Relations and Singapore’s chairmanship of ASEAN in 2018.


            Prime Minister Lee and President Xi also exchanged views on regional and international developments.
