Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung expressed his wish during a meeting with Singapore’s President Halimah Yacob today [October 18].

At talks, Yacob expressed her impression of the development pace of Hanoi and expected further progress in the coming time but noted the necessity to preserve cultural and historical values during this process.

Given the city’s strong focus on heritage preservation in line with tourism development, Yacob called for Hanoi to share its valuable experience with Singapore in this regard, especially as the latter is pushing for further urban development.

She called for greater cooperation with Hanoi in training and education and supporting the Singaporean business community operating here.

For his part, Hanoi Party chief Dinh Tien Dung said the solid bilateral relations over the years were thanks to the support and attention of both country leaders.

Dung briefed Singapore’s President on the city’s development progress, with a GRDP growth of 2.92% in 2021 amid severe Covid-19 impacts, higher than the national average of 2.58%.

According to Dung, Hanoi is focusing on building Ring road No.4 in the Hanoi Capital Zone with a length of 112.8 kilometers, and is scheduled to complete before 2027.

As part of future cooperation, Dung expected both sides to expand partnerships in education and training, especially in preparing a high-quality workforce in the public sector.

Dung mentioned the significance of preserving major historical heritages in Hanoi, such as the Co Loa Citadel or Thang Long Imperial Citadel.

“Culture and history are essential for a country, and their preservation has always been a top priority for Hanoi,” Dung said.
