Your Excellency,

 

On behalf of the people of Singapore, I would like to express my warmest congratulations to you and the people of India on the occasion of India’s 73rd Independence Day.

 

Since the establishment of diplomatic ties between Singapore and India 54 years ago, bilateral relations have grown from strength to strength, buttressed by deep historical and cultural linkages, extensive cooperation in many areas and close people-to-people ties. With unity of purpose and minds, I am confident that our two countries can build on this enduring foundation to achieve greater heights.

 

I wish Your Excellency good health and every success.

             

Yours sincerely,
