Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong attended the G20 Summit, held on July 7-8 at Hamburg Messe in Germany.
At this 12th installation of Group of Twenty (G20), world leaders discussed issues “relating to global economic growth, international trade and financial market regulation.”
Before the commencement of the summit, PM Lee met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. "As a member of the Global Governance Group, Singapore hopes to strengthen relations with Germany and promote the #G20 goals," the PM said in a Facebook post.
It was also the first time that PM Lee met with US President Donald Trump and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.
With President Trump, PM Lee discussed "regional and international developments."
President Macri of Argentina accepted PM Lee's invitation to visit Singapore.
With Japanese PM Shinzo Abe, PM Lee discussed the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail project. "I welcomed Japan’s interest in this major venture. Singapore and Japan celebrated 50 years of diplomatic relations last year and we looked forward to enhancing our bilateral cooperation," he added.
While on the tip, the PM showed off his photography skills, which were known to be pretty impressive. Here are some photos from his "#jalanjalan" album. ("jalan" is the Malay word for walk.)
After mingling with world leaders, PM Lee also headed to Munich for a National Day Reception with close to 400 Singaporeans and friends of Singapore.
