Singapore keen on urban development with India
Singapore foreign minister K Shanmugam will be here next week for discussions with the new Indian government of prime minister Narendra Modi on scaling up bilateral cooperation.
Shanmugam will discuss two-way cooperation in various sectors, including urban development, said Singapore High Commissioner Thuan Kuan. Thuan on Saturday met Urban Development minister Venkaiah Naidu and conveyed his country’s keenness to collaborate on the sector. Singapore is the second largest foreign investor in India. ‘India is now like a fast train and everyone wants to get in,’ Thuan remarked during the meeting with Naidu.
Singapore has plans to invest in the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor.
