Courtesy Call by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Received a Courtesy Call from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. They had a fruitful discussion on various issues. They spoke on expanding their bilateral economic relations, including having more Singapore companies to invest in Canada, as well as the importance of creating a society based on inclusivity and diversity.
Prime Minister Trudeau shared with President Halimah Yacob that he will be visiting the grave of his great-great-great-great-grandmother Esther Farquhar Bernard at Fort Canning. He is a direct descendent, on his mother’s side, of William Farquhar, the first Resident of Singapore.
