As part of a deal signed in September, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and Enterprise Singapore held a second round of business-to-business (B2B) and industry-focused meetings in Singapore.
The talks were attended by some of the region’s urban development leaders seeking to move forward with the implementation of its plans and projects for New Clark City in Capas town in Tarlac province.
The MOU signed between the BCDA and Enterprise Singapore in September sought to foster collaboration on business or investment opportunities in New Clark City, technologies exchange, and bilateral promotions of businesses, according to the BCDA.
BCDA representatives met with those from companies in the fields of diversified environmental services, engineering, information and communications technology (ICT), aviation solutions, and smart city technologies.
“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 CEO 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,” she said.
Its MOU with Enterprise Singapore enables BCDA to increase its understanding of emerging technologies and solutions used in urban development via knowledge sharing and awareness building activities.
The MOU also facilitates access for Singapore companies and relevant stakeholders interested to partner in the development of New Clark City.
