NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his spouse left Hanoi on April 25 for an official visit to Singapore and participation in the 32nd ASEAN Summit.

The leader is accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung, together with the Ministers of Planning and Investment, Industry and Trade, Natural Resources and Environment, and Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, and the Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam.

This is the first official visit to Singapore by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc as the Government leader of Vietnam.

Following the official visit to Singapore, PM Phuc will attend the 32nd ASEAN Summit from April 27-28. This will be the first ASEAN Summit in 2018 as Singapore takes over the bloc’s rotating chairmanship.
