Building on existing partnerships, India and Singapore are finding new avenues for strengthening bilateral ties.
This was evident in the high-level meeting between the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Singaporean Senior Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam on January 06, 2020.
Tharman has reportedly told Indian PM that they are optimistic about long-term prospects in India.
The Minister has informed about their growing investments in various Indian sectors, especially technology and logistics, among other areas.
The two sides have discussed about economic cooperation, infrastructure & skill development and India-Singapore Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA).
“We are also deepening collaboration in the digital economy, including linking up our payments systems and national single window platforms for trade. PM Modi and I had a good discussion on India’s economic and social strategies to ensure sustained growth and inclusivity in the years to come,” read Tharman’s statement.
Tharman is currently on bilateral visit to India until January 08, 2020, where he is scheduled to meet Indian officials, business community and more.
Hope this visit will pave way for enhancement of India-Singapore bilateral ties in the future.
