Had a few hours before my flight home, so I went exploring in Mercado de San Telmo (San Telmo Market). Chatted with several shopkeepers and customers, many of whom were from other countries in the region, such as Brazil and Venezuela. It’s not often I get the chance to take photos in relative anonymity. :) (The first photo is actually of my charming guide when I dropped by El Ateneo Grand Splendid. Thanks for showing me around your beautiful bookstore!) – LHL (Photos by me)

Couldn’t leave without visiting El Ateneo Grand Splendid, possibly one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world! This 99-year-old theatre was converted to a bookstore in 2000. It was buzzing with people when we visited, not only bibliophiles but those who wanted to take photos to post on Instagram. :) – LHL (MCI Photos by Betty Chua)

@g20org ended on a positive note, as leaders were able to agree on a joint communique. While this does not solve the difficult issues dividing countries, it is a small step towards building a better world together, with fair and sustainable development. Also held a few more bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the summit. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to focus on exploring new ways to strengthen cooperation and deepen ties with like-minded partners around the world. I’m enroute home now. Am flying via Newark so I get to try the world’s longest flight, on SQ of course! :) – LHL #G20Argentina ([1-4] MCI Photos by Betty Chua; [5] MFA Photo; [6] Photo by me)

Took a #jalanjalan in the Puerto Madero district to unwind after a day of meetings. It’s a waterfront district overlooking the Rio de la Plata. The area was bathed in the warm orange glow of the setting sun, perfect for photo-taking. – LHL (Photos by me)

Tis the season of summits. @asean2018 and @apec took place in November, and now we have completed the first day of @g20org. Opening the meeting, Argentine President @mauriciomacri spoke on multilateralism and international cooperation, and how governments must work together to overcome current tensions and build a common development strategy. At the first lunch retreat, I spoke about how we must embrace technological change, and not obstruct it. Governments must provide workers with the skills and the confidence to adapt to the changing nature of work. Also met leaders from the Netherlands, Brazil, the UK, and Jamaica on the sidelines of the summit. – LHL #G20Argentina ([1] Photo courtesy of G20 Argentina; [2] MCI Photo by Karen Tan; [3] MCI Photo by Betty Chua; [4] Photo by me)

A fruitful day meeting with our Argentine counterparts yesterday. We may be on opposite sides of the globe, but our bilateral ties are strong and warm. Started the day with breakfast hosted by President @mauriciomacri. We’ve made good progress on the Bilateral Investment Treaty, and hope to tie it up next year. We will also start working on an Avoidance of Double Taxation Agreement. Later, I met with Argentine Members of Congress. We covered many topics, including education and how we cleaned up the Singapore river. Good that Heng Swee Keat and @vivianbalakrishnan were there to share their experiences, as these came under their previous portfolios! Also met Mayor of Buenos Aires City @horaciorodriguezlarreta. We spoke about #SmartNation cities, mobility, and public transport. Mr Larreta told me he was last in Singapore more than 20 years ago, so I invited him to visit us again to see how things have changed, and to learn more about our policies. – LHL (PMO Video by Alex Qiu)

One way of acclimatising to the Argentinian time zone is to catch some sun. After lunch, we went #jalanjalan to stretch our legs and take in the sights of Buenos Aires. We headed to the historic Caminito in La Boca neighbourhood. It’s filled with lovely colourful buildings – reminds me of our own Haji Lane – but infused with an Argentine flavour. Going to be busy with meetings over the next few days. – LHL (Photos by me)

Hola from Argentina! Crossed quite a few time zones to get here - Buenos Aires is 11 hours behind Singapore Happy to accept the invitation by President @mauriciomacri for my first working visit here, where I will also participate in @g20org. This year’s summit will be an important one, especially with changes in the global landscape. – LHL #G20Argentina (The historic Obelisco de Buenos Aires, situated on the site where the Argentine flag was first raised in 1812.

Went #jalanjalan along the Singapore River over the weekend. Met many families out and about, and also chanced upon a few small animal, reptile, and avian friends too. :) Flying off to Argentina for the #G20 later - a 30-hour journey! – LHL (Photos by me)

Met founder and chairman of GERINDRA Party Mr Prabowo Subianto today. He is in town to speak at The Economist’s “The World in 2019” Gala Dinner tomorrow. He is also a candidate in next April’s Indonesian Presidential Election, and has been busy campaigning all over Indonesia. We discussed how Singapore and Indonesia can strengthen our strong ties and take our relationship forward. I wished him all the best and an enjoyable stay in Singapore. – LHL (MCI Photo by Fyrol)

Congratulations to all pupils who collected their PSLE results today! If you have done well, good job! Continue to work hard and do your parents, teachers, and most importantly, yourselves proud. If you did not get the results you hoped for, don’t be discouraged! Exam results are not the only thing that counts in life. Dust yourselves off and don’t give up! Parents, do continue to support your children and help them become the best they can be - not just in terms of results, but in character and values as well. – LHL (PSLE results day at Guangyang Primary School. / MCI Photo by Fyrol)

This year marks 25 years of diplomatic relations with Kazakhstan, so it was an apt time for Kazakhstan @primeministerkz Bakytzhan Sagintayev to make his first visit here. Kazakhstan is a vast country (9th largest in the world by area) blessed with abundant natural resources. It is a landlocked country surrounded by several neighbours notably China and Russia. Despite our differences in geography and distance, Singapore and Kazakhstan enjoy very warm ties and good cooperation with each other. Kazakhs residing in Singapore could perhaps pass off for Singaporeans due to their Asian looks! We exchanged two MOUs – for the mutual exemption of visa requirements for holders of diplomatic, service or official passports, and the promotion and mutual protection of investments. Hope to continue exploring more ways to work together. – LHL (MCI Photo by Clement)

Am back home from #APEC2018! Spoke twice at the @apec summit yesterday, at the #APEC Leaders’ Retreat and the working lunch. Both times I touched on coping with the disruption caused by digitalisation and technology on our economies. We need to update current trade rules to address the digitalisation of trade, e.g. cross border flows of data, e-payments, digital standards, and even our approach to AI. At the WTO, Japan, Australia and Singapore are co-convenors of an initiative to develop rules on e-commerce, which will provide business certainty and keep the e-commerce space open. APEC too should pursue initiatives to promote the digital economy. At lunch I spoke about how we are dealing with economic disruption in Singapore – by building on traditional strengths such as finance, and overcoming traditional constraints through innovation and new technologies. We are also taking care of our people – by making our education system prepare our students for the future economy, by equipping workers with relevant and up-to-date skills, and by looking after workers whose jobs may be displaced by technological disruption. – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Papua New Guinea is one of the most diverse countries in the world - culturally and linguistically. It’s reported that 850 languages are spoken here! But just like so many other populations in the world, the Papuan people are also adapting to the effects of technology on their society. It was therefore apt that the theme of the dialogue between @apec leaders and leaders from Pacific Island States at #APEC2018 was “Partnering for an inclusive Digital Future”. Digital linkages are one way to overcome our limits and challenges. But to harvest the full benefits of the digital economy, we need to invest in infrastructure and our people. – LHL (MCI Photos by Kenji Soon)

From one summit to another! Have arrived in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, for the @apec Economic Leaders' Meeting (AELM). This is the first time that this island nation is hosting such a large international summit (21 leaders from #APEC member economies will be attending). The Papuan people have gone all out to welcome their guests. Look forward to fruitful meetings with my counterparts. – LHL #hotelview #APEC2018 (The APEC Haus, where some of the meetings will be held, resembles the distinctive crab-claw sail of the Lakatoi canoe of Papua New Guinea. / MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Happy to welcome US @vp @mike.pence to the Istana this morning. We’ve had fruitful meetings with him and other leaders over the past few days in @asean2018, which Mr Pence attended on behalf of President Donald Trump. At the ASEAN-US Summit yesterday, we adopted the ASEAN-US Leaders’ Statement on Cybersecurity Cooperation. We also agreed to develop the US-ASEAN Smart Cities Partnership. During the East Asia Summit (EAS), we also issued statements, covering issues like terrorism, marine plastic debris, radioactive material and the digital economy. Singapore and the US have a deep and close partnership. We cooperate across economic, defence, and security areas, not to mention our strong people-to-people ties. Hope to see our strong relationship, as well as ASEAN’s relationship with the US, continue to progress. – LHL 🇸🇸 ([1,3-4] MCI Photos by LH Goh; [2] MCI Photo by Chwee; [5] MCI Photo by Clement)

After a busy yet productive week of meetings, the 33rd @asean Summit has come to an end. Chairing #ASEAN this year has been a honour for Singapore. We chose the themes “Resilience” and “Innovation”, as we recognised the challenges and opportunities that faced ASEAN. One of our projects was the ASEAN Smart Cities Network, which is set to bring our cities and peoples closer together. Hopefully, our efforts will make for a more united, resilient and innovative ASEAN. We hand over the Chairmanship to Thailand, and wish them the very best. Our Chairmanship may have come to an end, but this is only the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for ASEAN! – LHL #ASEAN2018 #WeAreASEAN

Australia, Canada, China, Chile, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, and the US. They aren’t @asean member states, but they are important strategic partners of Singapore and #ASEAN, and good trading partners as well! Meeting them regularly allows us to find opportunities for cooperation. If you wonder what goes on at international summits, it is usually a series of meetings (not glamorous, but necessary!). Today was no different, as we held several summits with these important partners all through Wednesday. I also met one-on-one with several leaders. We ended tonight with a Gala Dinner, which you may have seen streamed on the PMO YouTube channel! Tomorrow will be the last day of the summit - hoping for more fruitful discussions. :) – LHL ([1] MCI Photo by Betty Chua; [2-3] MCI Photo by LH Goh) @asean2018 #ASEAN2018 #WeAreASEAN

Tonight, we officially kicked off the 33rd @asean Summit! Such gatherings are useful for #ASEAN member states to get together and find new areas of cooperation. ASEAN’s future is bright, although new challenges and threats lie ahead. Digital technologies have changed the way we live, work and play, interact with each other, and transnational threats like terrorism and climate change will need all of us on the same page. Chairing ASEAN has been a great honour for Singapore, and I am glad that member states have come up with concrete measures to work better together. Will be posting more of what’s going on at the Summit, so stay tuned for more of my posts! :) – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol) @asean2018 #ASEAN2018 #WeAreASEAN

Busy day at the Istana! After meeting Dr Mahathir earlier, I welcomed Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in the afternoon. This is Premier Li’s first official visit to Singapore as Premier. We have met many times before, most recently at the ASEM meeting in Brussels. China and Singapore have a long-standing relationship, built up by generations of leaders from both sides. China has been our largest trading partner since 2013, and our largest foreign investment destination. In turn, we are China’s largest foreign investor since 2013 and China is our largest tourist source. Today also happens to be the exact day of the 40th anniversary of Mr Deng Xiaoping’s visit to Singapore in 1978! May we continue to build warmer ties and continue to learn from each other. Look forward to the Premier’s talk at the Singapore Lecture tomorrow and hope for a fruitful session at the @asean-China Summit. – LHL #ASEAN2018

Happy to welcome Malaysian PM (@chedetofficial) to the Istana this morning. Dr Mahathir’s visit kicks off a very busy week – he is the first of many foreign leaders who will be in town for the 33rd @asean Summit, which opens tomorrow. Dr Mahathir and I discussed a wide range of bilateral and regional issues, and agreed to work together to advance Singapore-Malaysia relations. Singapore and Malaysia are bound by ties of history and kinship, and we have close bilateral cooperation in many areas – economic, cultural, education, and security. Even if we do not hold the same views on all issues, we are committed to working out any differences peacefully and constructively. Dr Mahathir and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali received the uniquely Singaporean honour of having an orchid named after them. Tomorrow, Dr Mahathir will be conferred an honorary doctorate by the @nus_singapore. Look forward to enhancing our positive and forward-looking relationship with our closest neighbour. – LHL 🇸🇾 ([1,3] MCI Photos by Chwee; [2] MCI Photo by LH Goh)

The People’s Action Party (@papsingapore) turns 64, and this Party Conference marks the transition to the 4G leadership. The Party held its Central Executive Committee elections today. Soon a new slate of office holders will take on key Party appointments. I am confident the new team have their hearts in the right place and have what it takes to lead Singapore. The Party has a basic responsibility to maintain good politics in Singapore, so that the Party can continue to do right by the people and keep on improving people’s lives. Let us stay on course, and show that we are working with Singaporeans to give them, and their children, opportunities for progress and a better life! Together, we can! – LHL

At first he was my mentor, bringing me into politics; then we became comrades; and now ESM Goh Chok Tong and I are old friends. Last night, I had the honour of launching Chok Tong’s biography, “Tall Order: The Goh Chok Tong Story”. The book covers Chok Tong’s life, from childhood up till the point he succeeded Mr Lee Kuan Yew as Prime Minister. The book launch is timely. We are again preparing for a new generation of leaders to step up and write the next chapter of the Singapore Story. It is good to look back at previous transitions, and study how we made them work. You can watch both our speeches at the book launch on the PMO YouTube channel (click on the link on my profile). – LHL (MCI Photos by Kenji Soon [1] & LH Goh [2,3])

Religion is a source of spiritual strength and moral guidance for many of us. As a multi-religious and multi-racial society, we have worked hard to establish social norms of compromise and accommodation, to enable people of different religions to live harmoniously together. The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) has done good work providing Islamic direction and guidance for Muslims in Singapore’s unique context. MUIS celebrates its golden jubilee this year, and I was happy to join their International Conference and book launch today. Religion is a deeply personal matter. I am heartened to see many religious groups and leaders reaching out to strengthen interfaith ties and do good beyond their communities. I hope this will endure, and the next generation will continue building a stronger and more united Singapore. – LHL (MCI Photo by Kenji Soon)

Glad that Singapore had the opportunity to host the inaugural edition of the Bloomberg New Economy Forum. Its theme, “A new community for the new economy”, matches our desire to be part of an open, rules-based multilateral trading system. The forum brought many visitors to Singapore. Dr Henry Kissinger, whom I had the pleasure of lunching with on Monday, Mr @mikebloomberg, and several business and political leaders too, including Chinese Vice-President Wang Qishan, whom I hosted to lunch yesterday. In the evening, I had a lively dialogue with the delegates. We discussed issues ranging from US-China relations and @asean, to governance in Singapore and the country’s future. You can watch the dialogue on the PMO YouTube channel - click on the link in my profile. – LHL (MCI Photos by LH Goh) #NewEconForum

இனிய தீபாவளி வாழ்த்துகள்! Happy #Deepavali to all who celebrate it! The message of Deepavali is one of hope - the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil. To mark this symbolic victory, many families decorate their homes with lights, ranging from modern multi-coloured LEDs, candles, to traditional oil lamps. Whatever your preference, I wish all Hindu friends a meaningful celebration with family, friends, and neighbours. May the Festival of Lights fill your lives with happiness and warmth. – LHL

Had the pleasure of hosting Dr Henry Kissinger to lunch at the Istana today! Dr Kissinger is here to speak at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum, on the opening of China in the last and next 50 years. Dr Kissinger was an old and close friend of my father’s. At 95, he is astute and sharp as ever, still filled with zest for life and a deep interest in international developments. He has travelled a long way and I am glad that he took the time to meet with me today. I will also be speaking at the forum tomorrow and will post more updates then. – LHL (MCI Photo by Betty Chua)

A sunny Sunday morning in Fernvale – perfect tree planting weather! Planted an Agathis Borneensis (also known as the Malayan Kauri) with residents. This species can grow up to 50m tall. With love and care, the tree will grow taller each year, together with the young ones in the neighbourhood. Keeping Singapore a green and beautiful place to live takes effort – that’s why we hold Tree Planting Day every year! But this effort can take many forms. As long as each of us does our bit to help the environment, Singapore will be a beautiful home for years to come. – LHL (MCI Photo by LH Goh)

Congratulations to @sghseen‘s Department of Urology on their 30th Anniversary! The department was established in 1988. It was Singapore’s first urology department. It has become a one-stop centre for all urological needs, using advanced techniques including robotic surgery. Found out the nickname of the department’s robot last night – it is named after a *very* famous painting. #guesswhat The department also honoured Professor Foo Keong Tatt who established the department and is a pioneer in urological procedures. He trained many urologists, not only in Singapore but in other countries such as Bangladesh and Nepal as well. The Foo Keong Tatt Professorship will enable the department to recruit and retain the best researchers and teachers. My thanks to all the doctors, nurses, and staff at the SGH Department of Urology for setting high standards of excellence and tirelessly attending to patients under your care. – LHL

We’ve come a long way since the first “Keep Singapore Clean” campaign, launched when we were newly independent. Singaporeans now enjoy many green spaces and waterways in our “City in a Garden”. But our mission is far from over. With the threat of climate change, we must protect the environment for ourselves and future generations. The Government is implementing our Climate Action Plan, e.g. introducing a carbon tax, improving energy efficiency, and stepping up research in clean tech. This is why we still hold Clean & Green Singapore campaigns every year. To remind everyone that we all have a part to play keeping Singapore clean, green, and liveable, and that we share a responsibility to protect this planet earth that we all live on. – LHL (MCI Photos by Fyrol)
