CM visits Lion City to foster closer ties

PENANG Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was in Singapore over the past two days on a visit to enhance existing ties and establish new contacts with Singaporean businesses, industrialists and the media.

He led a delegation of key officials which included his policy adviser and Bukit Bendera MP Liew Chin Tong, his investment officer Jeffrey Chew, Penang Development Corporation deputy general manager Julian Candiah and Petaling Jaya MP-cum-Invest Penang director Tony Pua.

Lim met several Singaporean ministers yesterday for bilateral talks.

On Monday, he delivered a talk titled ‘Winds of Political Change in Malaysia: Can the Opposition Alliance Hold?’ at the Singapore Press Holding which was attended by editors and senior reporters.

He also met with ex-Xaverians and Penangites at Marina Square on Monday for a talk on ‘Penang — The Next Economic Growth Centre of Malaysia’.

Lim’s press secretary Cheong Yin Fan said the visit was part of his efforts to strengthen existing business and tourism ties between Penang and Singapore in the face of the economic slowdown.
