From the Singapore side Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong led the delegation. The five-day trip will be Lawrence Wong’s first official visit to the country in his capacity as Deputy Prime Minister.

“Delighted to participate in the India-Singapore Ministerial Roundtable along with FM @nsitharaman & CIM @PiyushGoyal. An open and freewheeling discussion on the possibilities and prospects of our ties in the coming decade. Considerable food for thought. Look forward to our next session,” Jaishankar tweeted after the meeting.

Wong, who is also Finance Minister, attended the ISMR with Minister for Foreign Affairs Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong and Minister for Transport and Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations S Iswaran.

The Ministers were later joined by industry leaders from both sides.

On Sunday, Wong will travel to Gujarat, where he will meet Chief Minister Bhupendrabhai Patel and visit Gujarat International Finance City.
