Singapore and US deepen cooperation on cybersecurity and digital economy

US Vice President Kamala Harris is in Singapore for an official three-day visit, where she is looking to deepen bilateral cooperation in multiple areas. 

The countries concluded three agreements between their cyber, defence and finance agencies.

The agencies involved said they will strengthen cooperation in critical technology, critical infrastructure protection, data security and sharing of best practices.

They will also cooperate on regional cyber capacity-building, and international cyber policy discussions to support a rules-based multilateral order in cyberspace.

The vice president's visit follows US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s trip to Singapore a month ago, with Singapore's PM saying that the high-level visits emphasise the US' commitment to the region and shows it has "strategic and economic stakes" in Southeast Asia.
