During the meeting, it was planned that an year-long series of events be held to mark the completion of fifty years of diplomatic relations between Singapore and India. Both Prime Ministers are keen that the occasion should be celebrated in a way that further expands the canvas of the relationship. 

Mutual cooperation in the fields of skill development, development of smart cities, water management, shipping, port management and coastal development was discussed in depth. 

Shri Narendra Modi said that his Government plans a major thrust in low-cost and affordable housing, and sought Singapore's assistance in construction technology for this purpose.
