Singapore signed an agreement with China to strengthen cooperation on the Belt and Road Initiative, aiming to expand the city-state's involvement in massive infrastructure projects led by Chinese companies. 

The two sides inked a memorandum of understanding in Beijing on Sunday to set up a governmental working group tasked with formulating plans for greater collaboration between companies from both countries in third-country markets covered by the Belt and Road initiative.
