In today's episode, the CCTV.com Panview Opinion Page team feature's an interview with the Singaporean envoy to China Stanley Loh. He talks about how China and Singapore bilateral relations have witnessed remarkable progress in the past few decades.
Singapore was one of the first countries in Southeast Asia to recognize formal diplomatic ties with Beijing. Additionally, Singapore has played a pivotal role to help China embark on rapid economic growth rates and now moving forward on a sustainable development path. By working together on major economic cooperation projects, the two countries now enjoy robust diplomatic and trade ties.
The Singaporean ambassador believes even brighter days are ahead, since his nation lays claim as a premier hub for trade and investments in the Southeast Asia region. Singapore has maximized its benefits by joining China to spur more enhanced free trade agreements (FTAs) in bilateral and multi-nation deals.
Stanley Loh also highlighted how Singapore hopes China can deliver on a more eco-friendly future and ways the two sides can collaborate to engage in more profitable ventures.
He explains this and more.
