Quotation PM Lee Hsien Loong Speeches to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi at the Official Dinner

Lee Hsien Loong: “Our people-to-people links are strong and growing. I am glad that we are lifting visa requirements for our peoples to visit each other’s country, as Daw Suu had proposed six months ago, and Singapore would welcome the first Myanmar travellers under this exemption tomorrow. We also hope to increase the air connectivity between our countries so that our peoples can visit each other more easily.”

“Tomorrow, I am looking forward to opening the exhibition “Cities and Kings: Ancient Treasures from Myanmar” at the Asian Civilisations Museum, together with Daw Suu. The exhibition will showcase Myanmar artefacts dating from the 4th to 19th centuries in Singapore. They will give our peoples valuable opportunity to learn about the ancient civilizations and the rich history of Myanmar. I would to thank the Myanmar Government for their generosity and support.”
