SINGAPORE: The Republic and the city of Shanghai, China on Wednesday (May 13) signed four agreements to strengthen the services sector, particularly in healthcare, education and media services.

The International Enterprise Singapore (IE Singapore) and the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce inked an agreement that signals closer ties between both governments. It includes promoting trade in services as well as exploring collaboration in trade, finance, insurance, education, environmental services and smart city developments, according to the IE Singapore press release.

On the business front, Raffles Medical Group is partnering Shanghai New Bund International Business District Investment Group in setting up a 400-bed integrated international hospital in Shanghai Qiantian.

EtonHouse Education Group also signed an agreement to establish its third international preschool in Shanghai at the Shanghai Hongqiao Vanke Business Centre, which is scheduled to open in September 2016. It will cater to 200 students ranging from 18 months to 6 years, IE Singapore said.

Singapore-owned MyChina Channel is also collaborating with China Business Network to distribute the latter's media programmes in the region, the press release said.
