The delegation visited the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and discussed partnerships in various areas.

Singapore's minister for sustainability and environment Grace Foo Hai Yen said that since Singapore is a very small country with limited resources of water and land, people there pay special attention to hygiene and cleanliness.

The tours and roadshows are part of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's efforts to make the state a USD 1-trillion economy in the next five years by bringing foreign investment to the tune of Rs 10 lakh crore.

As many as eight teams comprising state's ministers and senior officials are visiting 18 countries.
