PM Lee opens Mapletree Business Centre in Ho Chi Minh City
SINGAPORE Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially opened the Mapletree Business Centre in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday morning.
This 17-storey premium office tower is Mapletree's first office development in Vietnam, and marks the completion of the second phase of the 4.4-hectare Saigon South Place Complex in Ho Chi Minh City's affluent District 7.
Mr Lee was at the opening ceremony with Vietnam's Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung. Among Mr Lee's delegation at the event were his wife Ho Ching, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Chan Chun Sing and Singapore's ambassador to Vietnam Catherine Wong.
The Mapletree Business Centre has nearly 28,400 square metres of gross floor area and is designed to international Grade A specifications.
Mapletree chairman Edmund Cheng said: "Tapping on our rich experience in rejuvenating the HarbourFront and Alexandra precincts in Singapore, we aim to create a work-live-play environment by combining lifestyle, office and residential at Saigon South Place Complex."
