On the same day, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and his wife visited the Singapore Botanical Garden, which covers an area of nearly 74 hectares, a place to research and preserve more than 30,000 species of plants. It is famous around the world for the National Orchid Garden, the largest display of tropical orchids in the world with more than 1,000 orchid species and 2,000 hybrid orchid species.

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh attended the ceremony where a new orchid species was named "Pham Le Tran Chinh".
