Turkish Development Minister Lütfi Elvan met Singaporean Trade and Industry Minister S. Iswaran on Nov. 15, and agreed to boost economic ties between the two countries further, according to a Turkish ministry source.
They discussed ways to deepen collaboration in education, science and technology sectors plus other priority areas, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.
