Singapore-Skyline-mediumIn a move that aims to boost Rajasthan’s tourism industry, the state has inked two agreements with Singapore today (Oct 6).

The first agreement was signed between International Enterprise (IE) Singapore and the Rajasthan government to facilitate partnerships in the areas of urban solutions and tourism development.

IE Singapore’s subsidiary, the Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE), signed the second agreement to develop a training programme for about 100 Rajasthani government officials in the state’s Tourism Department. The SCE programme will consist of seven workshops – five in Jaipur and two in Singapore and involve topics like promotion and destination marketing.

The agreements took place in the presence of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is on a five-day working visit to India, at the Oberoi Hotel. He had earlier met Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday.

Tourism is a key sector in Rajasthan. In 2013, it received more than 34 million visitors, including 1.5 million foreign tourists.
