Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry S Iswaran on Sunday (Jan 11) called on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat.

During the meeting, both parties reaffirmed the long-standing bilateral ties, as well as the strong and growing economic links between the two countries. They also discussed opportunities for further bilateral economic collaboration in sectors such as urban solutions, energy and manufacturing.

Mr Iswaran, who is also minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, is in India for a four-day trip.

He noted that Singapore had committed to being a partner country for the 7th Vibrant Gujarat Summit when Mr Modi was the then chief minister of Gujarat. He added that Singapore’s participation was timely as 2015 also marks the 50th year of diplomatic relations between Singapore and India.

Mr Modi welcomed Singapore’s participation in the summit and also expressed his support for Singapore’s partnership in developing Andhra Pradesh’s new capital city. Mr Iswaran said that Singapore looks forward to working closely with the Indian government on the project.

Earlier, Mr Iswaran also met Chief Minister of Gujarat Anandiben Patel for the first time. Mr Iswaran shared that Singapore is happy to be partner country for the summit and highlighted the business interests from Singapore companies. Chief Minister Patel welcomed Singapore’s strong support with around 40 companies exploring opportunities in Gujarat.
