Wen Jiabao arrived in Singapore yesterday for an official visit to the country. It is
the first visit by a Chinese premier to Singapore in eight years. In the arrival statement,
Wen said he is looking forward to the meeting with Singapore on ways to deepen East
Asian cooperation between two nations so as to contribute to the building of a
peaceful, harmonious relationship.
Premier Wen Jiabao and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong agreed to
jointly develop an environmentally friendly city in northeastern China. The city will
be a model for sustainable development, a Singapore government statement said. The
“Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city” will be developed by a joint venture (合资) formed
by Chinese and Singapore companies. “This eco-city, to be built in Tianjin, will
become another highlight in our relations,” Wen said after signing an agreement with

Bilateral (双边的) relations between China and Singapore have seen big progress
even though the two countries established diplomatic ties (外交关系) only 17 years
ago, Wen said during his talks with Lee.
China and Singapore have also kept close contact and coordination (协调) on
regional issues, he added. Wen said China and Singapore are both important Asian
countries that share common interests in many areas.
