Singapore, France trade leaders adopt digital work plan for SMEs
The programme supports firms’ research and development projects.
Trade ministers of Singapore and France approved the France-Singapore Digital and Green Partnership (DGP) work plan, which will support innovations of firms in both countries.
The adoption of the work plan came after Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations S Iswaran met with French Minister in charge of Foreign Trade, Attractiveness, and French Nationals Abroad Olivier Becht, who recently paid a visit to Singapore.
It includes a co-innovation programme to back joint research and development (R&D) projects by Singapore and French firms, cybersecurity schemes, AI, and heritage conservation.
In March, the DGP was signed to help companies grow, especially small-medium enterprises.
