Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar recently visited Singapore when he met top leaders of the country and exchanged views on deepening engagement in the identified pillars of cooperation including fintech, digitalization, green economy, skills development and food security.

During his visit, Jaishankar met Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore and Lawrence Wong, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister.

He also met Teo Chee Hean, Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, during his two-day visit to Singapore from March 24 to 25.

"EAM held comprehensive discussions with H.E. Mr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister of Foreign Affairs on bilateral, regional and global issues of mutual interest," read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.

EAM also had a 'productive' meeting with  Gan Kim Yong, Minister of Trade & Industry, focused on bilateral co-operation in Trade and Investment, green energy and food security.

He also met K Shanmugam, Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Law to exchange views on strengthening our bilateral partnership.

Jaishankar paid homage to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at the INA marker in Singapore.

He also attended an event organised by the ISAS (Institute of South Asian Studies), where he interacted with thinktanks and policy makers.

"The visit presented an opportunity to further deepen the Strategic Partnership between India and Singapore and to take stock of progress in several areas of cooperation.
