As Singapore strives to be a leading smart and sustainable city, we are concurrently grooming urban solutions as a growth area, and this was reinforced in the recent report by the Committee on the Future Economy (CFE). Today, companies can collaborate with government agencies and use Singapore as a living lab to demonstrate and commercialise innovative urban solutions before scaling up for the world.
Focus areas include energy, water & environment, mobility, built environment and smart city integration.
The EDB is pleased to share on the latest strategies and opportunities in urban solutions through this breakfast talk.
