Singapore City (Singapore), Nov. 23 (ANI): Stating that Singapore is one of India's most important partners in the world at the present, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the relationship between both the countries is "as strategic as it is wide-ranging".

"We have comprehensive defence and security relations. It flows out of shared interests and a common vision. Singapore holds regular exercises with and in India," he said.

"Singapore is the biggest investment source and destination for India in the world; the world's most connected nation to India; the largest trading partner in Southeast Asia; and, a popular destination for tourists and students."

Now, as we build the India of our dreams, said the Prime Minister, Singapore is already a major partner in that enterprise - world class human resources, smart cities, clean rivers, clean energy, or next generation sustainable infrastructure.

"Starting from the first IT Park in Bengaluru, it now includes the newest state capital in India, Amravati in Andhra Pradesh. Our partnership will expand as our economies grow and the framework of trade and investment improves further."

Stating that Singapore's success in overcoming odds leads him to seek a partnership that addresses the challenges of 21st century - from food and water to clean energy and sustainable habitats, the Prime Minister said, "In many ways, Singapore will also influence the course of our region in this century."
