The Singapore government will set up a skill development centre in Guwahati which will cater to the entire Northeast region. DoNER minister Jitendra Singh informed that the facility will come up in 2019 after a meeting with a delegation led by Singapore high commissioner Lim Thuan Kuan in New Delhi on Monday.
The DoNER minister said that an MoU has already been formalised between Singapore and the Assam government to set up the skill centre in Guwahati. The skill centre is proposed to be set up by 2019 and the ministry of DoNER will coordinate in the initiative.
The Singapore delegation also expressed its preference to engage with India in the area of space technology for collaboration in “peaceful use of outer space”. Singh said the issue will be followed up in an appropriate manner.
