His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam on Tuesday received in audience Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance of the Republic of Singapore Lawrence Wong, at Istana Nurul Iman.

During the Audience Ceremony, His Majesty welcomed the Singapore delegation for the 9th installment of the Young Leaders’ Programme (YLP), which is the first time the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance as the head of the delegation.

Recollecting the speech made by President Tony Tan Keng Yam during His Majesty’s State Visit to Singapore in April 2014, His Majesty expressed firm belief that the YLP serves to strengthen the special relationship between Brunei Darussalam and the Republic of Singapore that was established during the time of his late father, Al-Marhum Sultan Haji ‘Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien and the late Lee Kuan Yew.

Meanwhile in another part of Istana Nurul Iman, Her Majesty Duli Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha binti Al-Marhum Pengiran Pemancha Pengiran Anak Haji Mohamed Alam, received in audience the spouse of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance of the Republic of Singapore Madam Loo.
