Prominent among the outcomes of the visit are that the two sides agreed on major directions to further deepen bilateral relations and cooperation in all fields; it contributes greatly to the attraction of resources to the economic recovery; it affirms that Vietnam and Singapore are trustable strategic partners in various regional and international issues of mutual concern; and it manifests the Party and State’s attention to the community of the Vietnamese origin in Singapore in particular and in foreign countries in general, Dung highlighted.
