The article said the visits conveyed a clear message of wishing to boost economic and political ties with ASEAN in general and Singapore, Brunei in particular toward building a harmonious, prosperous and sustainable ASEAN Community.

Achievements in economic bonds between Vietnam and Singapore over the past years are an outstanding highlight in Southeast Asia. Singapore has been the biggest investor of Vietnam in ASEAN, ranking second out of 140 countries and territories investing in the country.

In March 2019, Vietnam and Brunei upgraded their ties to comprehensive partnership level and agreed to build an Action Programme for their comprehensive partnership for the 2023-2027 period.

Vietnam, Singapore, and Brunei promised to continue working closely together, promote ASEAN's common principles and stance on its relationship with partners, step up the implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC) and negotiations on an effective and substantive Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC) in accordance with international law and the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), according to the article.
