President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan has said his visit to Singapore, which concluded on March 30, was fruitful, significantly strengthening ties between VFF and the People’s Association (PA) as well as the citizens of both countries.

During his stay, Nhan visited the National Community Leadership Institute of Singapore, the Vietnamese Embassy and representatives of the Vietnamese community in the country.

Nhan also called in at the two most sufficient Vietnamese firms in Singapore, the Petrolimex Singapore and FPT Asia-Pacific (FAP).

With 2013’s profit of 2.7 million USD, FAP is the only Vietnamese firm among nine companies recognised as capable enough of providing information technology to the Singaporean government.

FAP, which has been present in Singapore for seven years, won a 2 million USD project from the Singapore Police Force last year.

Speaking with a VNA correspondent in Singapore during the visit, Chief Executive Director of PA, Ang Hak Seng, said the relationship between Vietnam and Singapore is very special and his visit has deepened it further, not only government to government, but more importantly, people to people.

The People’s Association and the Vietnam Fatherland Front have many similarities and these will result in many future collaborations, allowing both agencies in Singapore and Vietnam to better serve their peoples, he said.-VNA
