Singapore on India China: The world is watching India’s progress. Today India’s views are listened to very seriously in the international world. Be it Russia-Ukraine war or Israel-Hamas war. On many occasions, the heads of state associated with these countries have said that a solution can be found only through India’s mediation. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of a developed country of the world has composed ballads in praise of India. On India’s progress, the Prime Minister of this country compared it with China and said that ‘whereas India is progressing, China is ageing.’
A country close to China praised India
According to the information, Prime Minister of South East Asian country Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong has praised the Modi government for the development of India. He has also given a statement regarding India being the youth power of the world and China’s aging population. Lee Hsien Loong said that PM Modi is taking the country on the path of rapid development through his economic reforms and digitalization.
What did Singapore’s PM say about India?
At the Bloomberg New Economy Forum Gala Dinner on November 8, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in an interview with Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait that I think India is growing rapidly. Last year, they were one of the fastest growing countries in the world. PM Modi is making progress with his economic reforms and his campaign to take India another level higher towards digitalization. But there is a problem, because the Indian economy is about one-fifth the size of China. India’s population is young and still growing. This is in contrast to China’s population, which is older and already stable and is now beginning to decline.
Singapore is considered close to China.
Singapore is traditionally considered a country close to China. Despite this, politicians and businessmen of Indian origin have considerable influence in this country. Former President of Singapore Halimah Yacob was a politician of Indian origin. Current President Tharman Shanmugaratnam is also of Indian origin. Lee Hsien Loong said India needs to make the most of this and expand its reach beyond the subcontinent to influence East Asia, Southeast Asia and the wider world. I think you can see them starting to do that with the quad. But I don’t think they have put that much resources into expanding influence beyond the subcontinent.
