The Asia Sustainable Infrastructure Advisory Panel (“ASIA Panel”)

A panel of international experts on sustainable infrastructure will share their economic and financial perspectives across the entire infrastructure value chain, from the planning, design, construction, to the operation and maintenance of projects.

The Asia Sustainable Infrastructure Advisory Panel (ASIA Panel), chaired by Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and National Development, aims to build up the region’s knowledge and awareness on sustainable infrastructure by sharing the latest trends, ideas and best practices.

Infrastructure underpins social and economic development and is linked to all 17 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Post COVID-19, there has been a global call to develop sustainable infrastructure and “recover better” from the pandemic. Asia, particularly Southeast Asia, has shown increased interest in sustainable infrastructure. At the 37th ASEAN Summit in November 2020, the ASEAN Comprehensive Recovery Framework (ACRF) aimed to advance a more sustainable and resilient future in line with goals set out in the United Nation’s (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Singapore has displayed strengths in various aspects of sustainability, such as green finance, urban solutions and climate change mitigation. Earlier this year, Singapore unveiled the Singapore Green Plan 2030 to advance sustainable development and achieve our long-term net-zero emissions aspiration. This strengthens Singapore’s commitments under the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Paris Agreement.

As a regional hub for sustainable infrastructure, Singapore seeks to build on these strengths to accelerate the development of sustainable infrastructure in the region. A panel of international experts on sustainable infrastructure would be able to share their economic and financial perspectives across the entire infrastructure value chain, from the planning, design, construction, to the operation and maintenance of projects. This would enable more collaborations and business opportunities for regional sustainable infrastructure.

About Infrastructure Asia
Infrastructure Asia aims to support Asia’s social and economic growth through infrastructure development. Infrastructure Asia was established by Enterprise Singapore and Monetary Authority of Singapore to support infrastructure financing and development in the region. It does so through early project scoping, best practice sharing and brokering, harnessing Singapore’s best-in-class infrastructure ecosystem (international developers, engineering and professional services, along with financial institutions and multilateral development entities).

It also works with global players in the regional infrastructure ecosystem and leverages the collective capabilities and networks of various government agencies to catalyse more trade and investments into infrastructure in the region.
