Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore, met in Berlin with Members of the German Bundestag, officials from several federal ministries, and selected experts to discuss Singapore’s role in the economic and security policy challenges of Asia Pacific. He was accompanied by a high-ranking delegation. The main topics included current challenges in the relations to China and Europe, regional implications of new free trade agreements, and Singapore’s role as a key member of ASEAN.
Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As in the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place shielded from the public, so as to enable a confidential, frank, and constructive exchange.
