Led by Mr Lim Swee Say, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, and Mr Lawrence Wong, Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, and Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, the 41-member delegation is visiting the cities of Luzhou and Chengdu.

On July 3, Mr Wong will co-chair the 15th Singapore- Sichuan Trade and Investment Committee (SSTIC) meeting with Sichuan vice-governor Gan Lin.

The meeting will review collaboration initiatives in the past year, and discuss new partnership areas in the coming year.
