ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
China-S'pore talks go well
China and Singapore on Friday successfully concluded high-level bilateral meetings that frankly addressed issues arising from the Tianjin Eco-city project and also inked three agreements on tax, currency and films, according to The Straits Times.
Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng co-chaired the 7th China-Singapore Joint Council for Bilateral Co-operation (JCBC) meeting and two others with his counterpart, Vice-Premier Wang Qishan.
The discussions were “very fruitful,” Mr. Wong noted.
'The talks were... very useful - we exchanged many ideas. We talked about our different developmental experiences (and) how, with economic development, we should also take care of the social development of our people,' he told Singapore media in an interview to wrap up his three-day visit to Beijing.
One of the bilateral projects which aims to promote not just economic and eco-friendly development but also social harmony is the Eco-city in Tianjin.
When completed, this 30 sq km city will offer its 350,000 residents eco-friendly public housing and business parks as well as a green light rail transit (LRT) system. The LRT will help the project achieve a key target of making eco-friendly public transport a way of life in the Eco-city.
