PM Narendra Modi visits Hindu, Buddhist temples and mosque in Singapore

Moody's cuts India's 2018 growth forecast to 7.3% from 7.5

In his speech, Modi spoke of how India's strategic autonomy had helped it to develop "special" and "privileged" ties with Russian Federation, a strong partnership with the U.S. and a multilayered relationship with China. Taking to Twitter, he said that the Temple illustrated the vibrant cultural connect between India and Singapore. Is that possible? Yes it is possible.

In his keynote address at the Dialogue, Mr. Modi had said an "Asia of rivalry" will hold the region back while an Asia of cooperation will shape the current century.

India's GDP grew at the fastest pace in seven quarters at 7.7 percent in January-March, retaining the fastest growing major economy tag on robust performance by manufacturing and service sectors as well as good farm output, the Central Statistics Office (CSO) said in its national accounts data released yesterday in New Delhi. "It includes all nations in this geography as also others beyond who have a stake in it", Modi said. "It is also the lifeline of global commerce".

"In recent times, both India and China have shown wisdom and maturity in managing issues and ensuring a peaceful border".

"India stands for a free, open, inclusive Indo-Pacific region, which embraces us all in a common pursuit of progress and prosperity", he said. "There is growing intersection in our worldwide presence".

Earlier on Thursday, Modi hailed the "warmest and closest" relationship between India and Singapore, saying the future is a world of unlimited opportunities and the two lions (countries) shall step into it together. "Differences must not become disputes", he said and stressed "friendships are not alliances of containment". The temple is based on the Tang dynasty architectural style and built to house the tooth relic of Buddha.

PM Modi made a case for greater India-Singapore cooperation at a joint press conference following a bilateral summit with his Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong in Singapore.

PM Modi also unveiled the Kala Sangam, a permanent platform established by High Commission of India, Singapore and Indian Heritage Centre, Singapore to bring Indian artisans to Singapore to demonstrate the craft, make and sell their products.
