Tan, who has been on an official visit to Viet Nam at the invitation of National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue, said Singapore is currently one of the largest foreign investors in Viet Nam and the relationship between the people of the two countries has also been strengthened,

He underlined that the visit takes place in the context of the friendship between the two countries that has been developing fruitfully.

The Vietnamese National Assembly and the Parliament of Singapore have signed a cooperation agreement, adding that this document is the foundation for the two legislatures to continue strengthening their collaboration.

The visit is a symbol of good things in the relationship between the two countries, which will continue to develop in the future, Tan said.

The Speaker of Parliament also highly evaluated Viet Nam's hosting of the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31), saying the organisation of the event is absolutely perfect.

Tan thanked the host country for offering a warm welcome to the Singapore sports delegation at the Games. It’s the friendliness of local people that has left a strong impression on them, he added.
