Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been invited to present the 'Delhi Model' at the World Cities Summit in Singapore.
The summit will take place on August 2-3. High Commissioner of Singapore Simon Wong called on Kejriwal at the Delhi Secretariat with the invitation, according to an official statement.
Kejriwal informed Wong about Delhi's streetscaping and road redevelopment project and said his government would be open to inviting companies from Singapore to develop pilot stretches under the project, the Business Standard reported.
The high commissioner said he would love to explore the collaboration on the project. The leaders also held an in-depth discussion about Delhi's efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent vaccination programme.
