REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, AMBON -- The Ambon city administration in Maluku Province is looking into the possibility of sister city cooperation with the Singaporean government in the health field.

"We will explore the possibility of sister city cooperation with Singapore in the future," Ambon Mayor Richard Louhenapessy said here on Tuesday.

The cooperation was necessary to improve the welfare and health of the local residents, he noted.

"By establishing such cooperation, we hope that the Ambon city administration can further improve the welfare and health of local residents through health instrument and medical worker assistance," he said.

The Ambon city government had earlier established sister city cooperation with Darwin city in Australia and Vlissingen city in the Netherlands, he stated.

Richard pointed out that Ambon has continued to grow not only as the seat of the Maluku provincial government but also as a center of education, services, trade, and tourism.

This year the Ambon city government had received a team of doctors from Singhealth and Singapore General Hospital to explore the possibility of sister city cooperation.

The team of doctors comprised Chujeow Leng (heart surgeon), Tay Boon Keng (bone surgeon), Foo Chee Liam (plastic and reconstruction surgeon), and Fong Yuke Tian (internist).

"We hope this cooperation could be realized soon to promote people's welfare," he added.
