Coronavirus is not stopping Australia and Singapore from forging stronger business links as the two countries’ leaders today held a virtual meeting in which they committed to drive cooperation on low emission solutions, including hydrogen.
Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia, and Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore, agreed to expand the two countries’ strong bilateral relationship and Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) in several areas of common interest via video conference.
At a time of global uncertainty, this Virtual Annual Leaders’ Meeting demonstrated the conviction of Australia and Singapore to continue with government-to-government business and uphold the excellent momentum of its CSP, even as each country deals with the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Prime Ministers committed to conclude a Memorandum of Understanding in 2020 to drive cooperation on low emission solutions, including new and emerging low emission technologies.
Australia and Singapore will work together on practical projects or initiatives in developing hydrogen markets, supply chains and standards, as well as carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCS).
