Singapore is one of Vietnam's largest trade partners, currently the ninth largest trade partner and the third largest investor in Vietnam.

The official visit by National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and the high-level NA delegation is designed to tighten relations among senior leaders, especially when Singapore has just elected the President and the Speaker of the Parliament for new terms.

During the visit, both sides will exchange views on the proposed amendment to AIPA Regulations in the time to come and introduce Vietnam’s legal policies, and investment and business environment.
