A heartfelt congratulations to His Excellency Tharman Shanmugaratnam on his victory in the Presidential elections of Singapore on 1 September 2023.
Malaysia and Singapore share close ‘familial’ ties with a proven history of mutual cooperation. Through our relationship built on shared history and mutual trust, we have strengthened our ties through trade, defence, and technological exchanges. This relationship serves as the cornerstone of peace and prosperity in Southeast Asia which continues to inspire the greater ASEAN community.
I strongly believe the ‘can-do’ spirit of Malaysians and the enterprising spirit of Singaporeans will continue to be the recipe that propels both of our countries to greater heights. Joint projects such as the ongoing Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link serves as an indelible testament of our countries growing ever closer together.
On behalf of Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia, I wish His Excellency Tharman Shanmugaratnam every success in his duties as the head of state of Singapore.
Datuk Dr. Dominic Lau Hoe Chai
Presiden Nasional Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia
