Suresh Prabhu to Attend Infra Finance Summit in Singapore Today


NEW DELHI:  Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu left for Singapore on Monday to participate in the Infrastructure Finance Summit.

Mr Prabhu will be a key speaker today at the summit, which has been organised by World Bank in association with the Singapore government, said a senior Railway Ministry official.

The rail minister is participating in the event to facilitate sourcing of funds for infrastructure development in India, a cause he has been championing for long.

Mr Prabhu had gone on a week-long visit to Japan and South Korea last month to explore possibilities and avenues of technology cooperation with these countries to achieve the goal of ‘zero accident’ and acquiring high-speed technology for the railways’ ambitious bullet train project.

He has been specially invited to the Singapore meet to share experiences related to the work that Indian Railways is doing for infrastructure financing. More info
