Luncheon Plenary by Special Guest Speaker

Grand Ballroom, Level 1

As ASEAN economies continue to thrive, investment opportunities increase and demand for infrastructure projects continues to grow, governments are now transforming the political and legislative landscape of the infrastructure sector. With the region seeking to introduce PPP projects at a rapid pace, now is the time for increased international collaborations and to learn from other markets. How can we actively share best practice? What can be learnt from previous developments? And, most importantly, how can the ASEAN community better prepare and design more efficient infrastructure projects?

Infrastructure Opportunities in Vietnam

Vietnam is one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia and a target country for infrastructure investors. The expansion of its population in major cities has fuelled demand for more transportation and logistics networks, and utilities infrastructure. The government has also made efforts to introduce PPP projects especially in the road and rail sectors to attract foreign investments. How does Vietnam keep the investment coming from foreign investors?

Project Sharing by Infrastructure Asia

Infrastructure Asia, set up by Enterprise Singapore and the Monetary Authority of Singapore, offers a platform for information exchange and sharing of best practises in the development, financing and implementation of infrastructure projects. Since its inception in late 2018, it has engaged various ASEAN countries, private investors as well as a range of stakeholders in infrastructure projects to push forward its agenda. What role would Infrastructure Asia play in catalysing infrastructure development in Asia?

Project Sharing by MCC Land Singapore

When we talk about Cambodia, we will associate her with Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s busy capital, sits at the junction of Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers. It was a hub for both the Khmer Empire and French colonialists. Siem Reap is the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer Kingdom from the 9th – 15th centuries.

Little is known about the hidden jewel located off the south coast of Cambodia. The aim of this presentation is to give you a glimpse of this emerging jewel which will be a liveable, smart, and innovative city.

Ms LI Yanmei

Senior Vice President, Urban Development
MCC Land (Singapore)

Side Meetings
