Soon Indian chartered accountants and nurses will get easy access to work in Singapore as the two countries are finalising mutual recognition agreements.
Mutual recognition agreements (MRAs) pave the way for recognition of professional body of one country by the other. Regulatory bodies of various professional services like engineering, accountancy and architecture are encouraged to enter into these pacts.
"We already have Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) going on for Singapore. In nursing we have finished MRAs. The other MRAs on chartered accountancies are under negotiations," Commerce Secretary Rajeev Kher told reporters here.
With these agreements, chartered accountants and nurses of Singapore too would find it easy to work in India.
