SMa, together with SPRING Singapore, helped SMEs forge ahead in urban development projects – usually the domain of MNCs – at this year’s World Cities Summit.
Taking up almost 40% of the SMa booth space was the anchor exhibitor – WaterTech – who with a group of Singapore SMEs are helping the local government in Fujin City, Heilongjiang Province, to develop the first phase of the Heilongjiang (Fujin) International Safe Food Industrial Park. WaterTech is inviting Singapore investors, especially SMa members to join in this venture. Special privileges are being worked out just for SMa members.

Besides giving delegates the opportunity to explore China, there was also the avenue to discover the up and coming Angola township development, which was showcased by Real Kaiten, a consultancy and investments company.
CEO of Real Kaiten Group Elaina Olivia Chong, said: “We are developing an eco-town with some 6500 housing units that will feature practical applications of green technologies. We aim to establish a milestone for Green Building & Infrastructure development in Africa. The project will be built based on an economically sustainable model that will ultimately benefit the locals.”
