Anwar arrives in Singapore for official visit

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim arrived in Singapore today for an official visit.

It’s Anwar’s third official visit abroad since appointed as the prime minister.

The special aircraft carrying the prime minister, who is accompanied by his wife, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, landed at the VIP Complex, Changi International Airport, at 9.40am.

He was greeted on arrival by the republic’s Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia Vanu Gopala Menon.

Also present at the airport were Foreign Minister Zambry Abdul Kadir, Foreign Ministry secretary-general Amran Mohamed Zin, and the Malaysian High Commissioner to Singapore, Azfar Mohamad Mustafar.

A tight schedule awaits the prime minister, with the day trip kicking off with an official welcoming ceremony held at the Istana.

He will call on Singapore President Halimah Yacob and have a meeting with his counterpart Lee Hsien Loong, who will also host an official lunch.

Thereafter, both prime ministers will witness the signing of three agreements before Anwar leaves the Istana to hold an engagement session with the Malaysian diaspora in the island city.

This will be Anwar’s first official visit to Singapore in his current capacity.

The Malaysian delegation comprises Transport Minister Anthony Loke, International Trade and Industry Minister Tengku Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil, and officials from the relevant ministries and agencies. 

Sarawak Premier Abang Johari Openg and Johor Menteri Besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi are also part of the official delegation.
