Four day joint study concluded.

The two Ministers meet to discuss projects.

(Singapore=Koreanpress) Benjamin Kim = Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for Defence Chan Chun Sing concluded a joint study visit on the proposed third Government-to-Government (G-to-G) project in Western China from February 1 to 4, 2015.

Together with PRC Vice Minister of Commerce Gao Yan, Minister Chan and a Singapore business delegation with representatives from the aviation, logistics and services sectors visited the three shortlisted cities for the project – Chongqing, Chengdu and Xi’an – to better understand the conditions in each city.

While in China, Minister Chan called on PRC Minister of Commerce Gao Hucheng in Beijing, where both leaders re-affirmed 25 years of strong diplomatic relations between Singapore and China and agreed to work closely on the study for the proposed third G-to-G project.

 During the visit, Minister Chan also called on provincial and municipal
leaders, including Chongqing Party Secretary Sun Zhengcai, Sichuan Party
Secretary Wang Dongming and Shaanxi Party Secretary Zhao Zhengyong.

Throughout the four-day visit, the delegation visited commercial sites
and met with local officials and potential business partners to better
understand each city’s developmental plans and how they relate to China’s
national strategies for the western region.

 Commenting on the visit, Minister Chan said, “This has been a very
fruitful exchange on potential business opportunities in the western region of
China. As a next step, our Singapore businesses will continue to explore
potential collaborations with their counterparts. This is important as the project
must be relevant to China’s developmental priorities and be commercially
viable. Singapore hopes to value-add to developments in the Western region,
by enhancing connectivity within the region as well as connecting the region to
other parts of China and the world. This is in line with the theme of
collaboration - ‘modern connectivity and modern services’ jointly identified
earlier.”

 The visit underscored the strong bilateral economic relations between
Singapore and China and the mutual interest to advance economic
collaboration. Economic linkages between Singapore and China have been
growing in recent years. In 2014, China was Singapore’s top trading partner
and export destination, and total trade between China and Singapore
amounted to S$121.5 billion. Singapore was also China’s fourth largest
trading partner in Asia and top foreign investor last year.
