Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s visit to China this week signals efforts on both sides to reaffirm relations that have showed strains over the past year – both in its timing and number of high-level meetings.
“This is an extremely high-profile visit that happened at an extremely critical time,” said associate professor Li Mingjiang, coordinator of the China programme at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University.
“It shows the high-level connection between the two nations is stable and they highly regard each other in the relationship,” he said.
