State-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority and Enterprise Singapore conducted a second round of business-to-business and industry-focused meetings in Singapore with some of the region’s urban development leaders to polish plans and explore new projects for New Clark City.
“As urbanization continues, we at BCDA understand that smart city technologies and public transport solutions are important in realizing a sustainable and inclusive future for New Clark City,” said BCDA president and chief executive Aileen Zosa.
“We are very fortunate to partner with Enterprise Singapore who helps us forge connections with some of the global urban mobility and smart city leaders. Through their expertise and experience, we will be able to embed global best practices not just in New Clark City but across all the infrastructure projects we are developing,” Zosa said.
BCDA met with companies involved with diversified environmental services, engineering, information and communications technology, aviation solutions and smart city technologies.
Among the New Clark City projects pitched were the Common ICT Infrastructure Network, the Data Center Colocation Facility Project, the New Clark City Affordable Housing Project, the New Clark City Estate and Facilities Management Services and the Operations and Maintenance of New Clark City’s Sports Facilities.
The BCDA and Enterprise Singapore signed a memorandum of understanding in September to foster collaboration on business or investment opportunities in New Clark City, technologies exchange and bilateral promotions of businesses.
The MOU will help BCDA understand emerging technologies and solutions used in urban development through knowledge sharing and awareness building activities.
The MOU also facilitates access for Singapore companies and relevant stakeholders interested to join the development of New Clark City.
The BCDA delegation also attended the recently-concluded 2022 Singapore International Transport Congress & Exhibition—the leading public transport event in Asia Pacific which gathered over 130 urban mobility innovators across the globe.
