SINGAPORE: Singapore and the United States will sign a Memorandum of Understanding on collaboration in the education sector. This will be done during Education Minister Heng Swee Keat's visit to Washington DC on Monday. The signing ceremony will take place during his meeting with US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan. Singapore's Education Ministry said the agreement will build on the first US-Singapore MOU on education signed in 2002. It will extend the scope of collaborations between the two countries. While in Washington, Mr Heng will hold meetings with Mr Duncan and Special Advisor to the President on Education, Roberto Rodriguez. He will also attend the Singapore Conference (on February 8), organised by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies where he will deliver the keynote address during the education segment.
