2020/04/01

On April 1, 2020, when co-chairing the virtual China-Singapore Joint Meeting on COVID-19 with Permanent Secretary Chee Wee Kiong of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Singapore, Vice Foreign Minister Luo Zhaohui said, China-Singapore relations enjoy a good momentum of development. The two sides have reached important consensus on expanding practical cooperation and celebrating the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations before the pandemic. But the pandemic disrupted the original arrangement and rhythm of bilateral relations. However, the two sides have helped each other and overcome the difficulties in the midst of the pandemic. The bilateral relations have shown new vitality, and we have gained time and accumulated experience for the world's fight against the pandemic. At present, the epidemic situation in both countries has entered a relatively stable period. We need to maintain the good momentum of bilateral relations. While cooperating to prevent the rebound of epidemic input, we should strengthen forward-looking planning, focus on bilateral relations during the "post-pandemic" period, and discuss the provision of convenient access to ensure smooth supply chains between the two sides, so as to accumulate more experience for the global economic recovery and globalization after the pandemic. It is what this meeting is all about.

The Singaporean side fully agreed with the Chinese side. The two sides had a lively, efficient, result-oriented and constructive discussion and reached much consensus. Both sides agreed to hold a second virtual meeting in due course.
