Taipei, Nov. 27 (CNA) National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Hospital signed a memorandum of understanding Tuesday with India's Cygnus Hospitals, promoting bilateral exchange in medical developments.

The MOU was inked, at a signing ceremony held in Tainan, by NCKU Hospital Superintendent Yang Chyun-yu (楊俊佑) and Director of Operations at Cygnus Hospitals Naveen Nishchal, who is also chairman of "Voice of Healthcare," a policy think tank based in New Delhi.
