Dear President Xi,

 

 

     On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Singapore, I extend my warmest congratulations on your re-appointment as President of the People’s Republic of China. 

 

 

     Over the past five years, you have led China to new achievements amidst an uncertain and challenging international environment. Your government has shown great determination to improve the lives of the Chinese people.  I am confident that, under your strong leadership, China will continue to forge ahead and realise its vision for a new era. 

 

 

     Singapore and China enjoy excellent relations underpinned by wide-ranging cooperation, which has expanded to new areas such as the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, as well as new initiatives to facilitate closer cooperation on finance, and legal and judicial matters.  We share a common interest in preserving a free trading system and maintaining global peace and stability, which has benefitted both our countries.  As ASEAN Chair in 2018 and the current Country Coordinator for ASEAN-China Dialogue Relations, Singapore will work with China and other ASEAN members to further broaden and deepen ASEAN-China cooperation. I look forward to continue working with you closely to take our strong bilateral relationship to greater heights.

 

 

     I wish you good health and continued success.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

LEE HSIEN LOONG

Dear Premier Li,

 

 

     Please accept my warmest congratulations on your re-appointment as the Premier of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China. 

 

 

     China’s continued development and opening up over the past decades have brought about many benefits to the Chinese people.  This has also contributed to the stability and prosperity of our region and the world. 

 

 

     Singapore and China share a close and longstanding friendship.  Our bilateral cooperation continues to keep up with the changing interests and priorities of our people, and has expanded to new areas, such as the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, finance, legal and judicial matters.  We share a common interest in preserving the global free trade system as well as maintaining peace and stability in the region and the world.  As the current ASEAN Chair and Country Coordinator for ASEAN-China Dialogue Relations, Singapore will continue to work with fellow ASEAN Member States and China to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation between ASEAN and China.  

 

 

     I wish you good health and continued success. 

 


Yours sincerely,
