VALLETTA: India and Malta signed three MoUs on Monday, including one on maritime cooperation, as Vice President Venkaiah Naidu held comprehensive discussions with the President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca on ways to bolster bilateral relations.
The two countries signed the three MoUs for collaboration between the foreign services institutes and cooperation in maritime and tourism.
Naidu, the first senior Indian leader to visit the Mediterranean nation in the last 28 years, after holding talks with the President of Malta said India is very keen to strengthen bilateral ties with one of its “most trusted partners” within the EU.
“India and Malta are growing at a steady pace. If we can work together, we can certainly grow faster. Both our economies are complementary and technology based. We need to bolster our relationship with far more substantive cooperation on the economic, scientific and technological, human resource development fronts,” he said. (AGENCIES)
