Feb. 1, 2006 — India has proposed cooperation with Singapore in the areas of nanotechnology and biotechnology to benefit the two countries and help tackle some of the major problems of the world.
“We need to explore more areas of expanding our cooperation and in this respect I do believe that there is a very good potential for cooperation in aspects of science and technology, particularly nanotechnology and biotechnology,” President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam said today at a banquet hosted by Singapore President S.R. Nathan in Singapore.
“I am convinced that for entrepreneurs and creative societies like ours, who have placed great faith in using technology for development, opportunities for cooperation are immense. Such cooperation will benefit not only our countries but also the people of the world, in tackling some of the major problems,” Kalam said. He said India looked at cooperation with Singapore as the gateway to larger cooperation with South East Asia, East Asia and Asia Pacific.
