Donald Trump accepts PM Lee's invitation to visit Singapore next year

SINGAPORE: United States President Donald Trump has accepted Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's invitation to visit Singapore next year, the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement on Monday (Oct 23).

Mr Lee is currently on an official working visit to Washington, DC at the invitation of Mr Trump.

Mr Trump hosted Mr Lee to a working luncheon together with cabinet secretaries and key White House officials, after witnessing the signing of a Singapore Airlines-Boeing deal worth US$14 billion.

Mr Lee also met with US Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, during which the two reaffirmed the "strong and mutually beneficial trade and investment linkages" between Singapore and the US and the importance of continued US economic engagement of the Asia-Pacific, said PMO.

"Singapore and the US are partners in many areas, but above all we are warm friends, as we have been for 51 years," said Mr Lee in a Facebook post. "I expressed my hope that the US will continue engaging the Asia Pacific, and extended an invitation to President Trump to visit us, which he has accepted."

"Long may our friendship continue!"
