The close ties between India and Singapore have a history rooted in strong commercial, cultural and people-to-people links. Singapore is not only an important trading partner in ASEAN but also a major source of FDI inflows in India.

The robust relationship was elevated to a Strategic Partnership during the visit of PM Narendra Modi to Singapore in 2015 who signed a Joint Declaration on a Strategic Partnership with Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong. Later, Singapore's President Tony Tan Keng Yam undertook a State Visit to India on 8-11 February 2015 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
