Looking forward to bilateral cooperation between Singapore and China

Singapore’s Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and the PRC’s State Councilor and Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi have met shortly earlier this week when Wang stay in Singapore for a brief transit stop in his South-east Asia diplomatic drive. The Ministers agree that both countries should overcome the post-pandemic hardship, including committing the cooperation in COVID-19 vaccines and mutual support for economic recovery in the post-pandemic era. They have also discussed about the possibilities of the safe resumption of international travel given the situation is feasible.

Indeed, both countries have recently marked their 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations in early October. The Ministers reaffirmed the excellent relationship between the two countries. More bilateral cooperation in aspect such as trade, investment, supply chain connectivity are expected. Last year, all member countries in the ASEAN including Singapore, have joined the Cross-Border Inter-Bank Payments System (CIPS) for the remittance and clearance of the Chinese Dollar RMB via the cross-border bank system. This may enhance the financial flow and efficiency of the bank clearance within the region. Jobs in the financial and professional service sectors are secured. Opportunities are landed here. The CIPS, in fact, contributes to the uniqueness to this financial hub given Singapore’s constant trade with China in the past decades.

Now, Singapore is seeking for solutions for quick economic recovery after the pandemic crisis. Potential Singapore-China reciprocal green lane to Chinese tourists and investors is definitely a timely rain to rescue to Singapore’s tourism and hotel industry. Currently, the pandemic in Malaysia and Indonesia is still uncertain. By contrast, China has now fully recovered from the dreadful COVID-19. Exploring the possibility to guests from PRC would likely boost Singapore’s business and economic activities, provided that the Chinese immigrants are provided with a safe itinerary to comply with the local health guidelines and arrange necessary medical check-ups.

Both Singapore and China should cherish and value their mutual relationship. Their friendship may further be extended with Singapore’s participation of the Belt and Road Initiatives, whereby Singapore may engage by committing her expertise and talents such as infrastructure financing and green technology, etc. With Singapore’s involvement, the circle of BRI partners would benefit. The bilateral cooperation between both countries relies on trust and respective capabilities. Meanwhile, we are praying for the speed up of Singapore’s economy recovery. Let’s witness the milestone of the giants’ cooperation.

  • Politics Of Diplomacy:

    The politics of diplomacy is to always say the good and nice stuff, pleasing to the ears. Words said in front of the face may not be consistent with actions carried out behind the back.

    “With Singapore’s involvement, the circle of BRI partners would benefit. The bilateral cooperation between both countries relies on trust and respective capabilities. Meanwhile, we are praying for the speed up of Singapore’s economy recovery. Let’s witness the milestone of the giants’ cooperation.”

    Questions:

    1. Can BRI partners do without Singapore? Yes. Can Singapore do without BRI? No. So, Singapore benefits from the circle of BRI partners, or the circle of BRI partners benefit from Singapore?

    2. How to build trust when Changi Naval Base is home to the US Navy and the Indian Navy but not to the Chinese Navy and Singapore news media (government mouthpiece) keep singing the songs of US propaganda attacking China almost every single day without respite?

    3. Singapore has now become among the “giants”?

  • Harder Truths:

    So… more FT coming in right? That’s is the agreement. Given schooling, housing and jobs that are denied to locals, who are funding all these ‘adventures’.

    India and China have a large chunk of SG citizen’s wealth. These are called ‘investments’ and will never be see again. In return Team Despot gets jobs for its own people and corporations and whatever money they get from this arrangement they keep.

    Is it just me or does anyone else see a problem here?

  • It's a Lie:

    China has now fully recovered from the dreadful COVID-19.

    Chu Kar-kin, I believe you know this is a lie, yet your repeated it. Many places in China are now on high alert after their golden week holidays. Currently, Shangdong, Qingtao is seriously hit by the virus. However, as we all know the CCP number is always grossly under reported to look good. And, please don’t refer to our MSM (Main Stream Media), it echoes the CCP approved narrative.

    A LIAR trying to point his fingers at others as lying. This is the reversed psychology tactic being used by the evil US Empire and their running dogs.

    Anyone using the three letters CCP instead of China is a clear tell-tale sign that he is a US running puppy.

  • @It’s a Lie

    Obviously have been reading too much MSM tabloids.

    The reason why it is looking so serious in China is because they take the C19 threat seriously.

    As a matter of fact, there are only about 10 infections in QingDao, but the authorities decided to restrict all ins and outs and compel testing the entire city, just to be absolutely safe. They are willing to go to the extreme to ensure that no stones are left unturned.

    Compared to the local MSM who have been down-playing the seriousness of teh C19 threat and massaging the figures, you say which approach is better?

    Seriously speaking, which idiot would believe that out of 60,000 people who kenna, less than 500 are local Sinkies?

    You really believe Sinkies are mostly immune and the virus dare not bite Sinkies because the party for sign contract with the C129 virus issit?

    One thing for sure, the Chinese will be celebrating Christmas and Lunar New Year practically uninhibited while I cannot say teh same for Sinkies, which is still stuck in the 1st stage of the pandemic and with the 3rd phases re-opening planned, there may be a massive spread resulting in another Wuhan.
