Statement by the Press Secretary on the visit of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore to the White House

 

President Obama will welcome Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore to the White House on Tuesday, April 2. The United States and Singapore have strong economic and security ties, and our strategic partnership reflects a shared commitment to working together to ensure the continued peace, stability and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region. The President looks forward to discussing with Prime Minister Lee a broad range of strategic and economic issues affecting the Asia-Pacific region.

 

The Prime Minister’s visit underscores the strategic importance the President places on Asia and the value we place on our relationship with Singapore as a key partner.  The visit will provide an opportunity for the two leaders to discuss deepening our bilateral relationship, working together in the region’s multilateral institutions, including the East Asia Summit and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, and continuing progress on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
