Trump-Kim summit to cost Singapore 'about $20 million': PM Lee
Singapore’s hosting of the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will cost the nation “around $20 million”, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Sunday (10 June).
“We may be able to recoup a little bit of that but I think it is a cost that we’re willing to pay and it’s our contribution to an international endeavour, which is in our profound interests,” said Lee during a press conference held at the summit’s International Media Centre.
He added that the summit is an opportunity to “show what Singapore can do” and expressed confidence that it would bring positive publicity to the country.
“The fact that we have been chosen as the site of the meeting… says something about Singapore’s relations with the parties – with America, with North Korea – (and) also our standing in the international community,” said Lee.
When pressed for a breakdown on the summit expenses, he said, “I think if you calculate the price of everything in this world, you will miss out the really important things.”
Lee added that while the government has been “cost conscious” in its approach to spending for the summit it has also worked to ensure that all operational requirements for the meeting – especially in terms of security – have been met.
PM Lee is scheduled to meet Kim at the Istana on Sunday, and Trump on Monday. The historic summit between Kim and Trump is set to take place at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa this Tuesday.

Barring any last minute changes, the historic Trump-Kim summit (featuring US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) is scheduled to happen at the awesome Capella Singapore on 12 June 2018, 9am. But where exactly on the sprawling premises of the said hotel? Now that obviously would be uber top secret or summarily "I could tell ya but I'd have to kill ya" that big a deal. Still, as concerned citizens of the world we would like to humbly tender an excellent recommendation of our own based on a previous staycation experience: the gymnasium. Kindly hear us out.
Both gravitationally challenged (and largely impetuous) characters could torch some serious calories and chill their saggy tits a bit while thrashing things out in the fashionably equipped, well ventilated workout venue. Trump on treadmill, Kim on rowing machine. Or perhaps the other way round if Trump's knees crumple way too easily beyond a slight jog. In any case, exercise clears the head, and a much more sensible deal could possibly be reached courtesy of two clear heads.
