Australia and Singapore Agree to Plans tor a "Safe & Calibrated" Travel Bubble
The Prime Minister managed to slide in a successful Singapore stop-over on Thursday before heading to the G7 Summit in Cornwall.
The PM and his counterpart Lee Hsien Loong have vowed to ramp up efforts to create a quarantine-free travel bubble that, in its incubation would allow students to return to Australia.
Singapore has recorded on average four local Covid-19 cases a day and are rolling out their vaccine program with younger people included in the programme.
Mr Morrison has congratulated Singapore on a "tremendous" job in tackling the virus and would like to see the two countries create a travel bubble, similar to the Australia-New Zealand bubble starting with students in the hope of countering some of the financial losses driven by the pandemic on universities.
"For the Students from Singapore to be the first opportunity to see increased travel between Australia and Singapore realised"
- PM Scott Morrison
The National Briefing
Both leaders are committed to opening a "safe and calibrated" travel corridor starting with mutual recognition of vaccine certificates.
