Enabling sustainable infrastructure for Asia’s recovery
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and global travel restrictions, the Asia Infrastructure Forum (AIF) will take on different formats this year, to safeguard the safety and well-being of our participants. In place of a fully physical event, AIF 2021 will be presented as a hybrid Forum.
The Asia Infrastructure Forum (AIF) is a foremost platform for infrastructure players and thought leaders to discuss key issues such as the future state of infrastructure, sustainable financing, technological innovation and collaboration. AIF 2019 saw over 900 attendees across 20 countries, from senior regional government officials and project owners, equity and debt financiers, developers to professional services providers.
Building on the success of 2019’s edition, we are pleased to announce that AIF2021 will take place in the week of 20 June 2021.
AIF 2021 will introduce various segments – Ideation Roundtables, Legal Symposium and Project Discussions – that will bring the discussion to a higher level.
Participants can look forward to in-depth discussions providing insights into the latest developments and sustainable solutions in regional infrastructure.
Infrastructure Asia supports Asia’s social and economic growth through infrastructure development.
The organisation match-makes organisations that are domain experts in their respective fields with regional governments, firms and multilateral development banks. At the same time, it brings various industry stakeholders across the value chain together to explore project opportunities in Asia.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is Singapore’s central bank and integrated financial regulator. As a central bank, MAS promotes sustained, non-inflationary economic growth through the conduct of monetary policy and close macroeconomic surveillance and analysis. It manages Singapore’s exchange rate, official foreign reserves, and liquidity in the banking sector. As an integrated financial supervisor, MAS fosters a sound financial services sector through its prudential oversight of all financial institutions in Singapore – banks, insurers, capital market intermediaries, financial advisors, and stock exchanges. It is also responsible for well-functioning financial markets, sound conduct, and investor education. MAS also works with the financial industry to promote Singapore as a dynamic international financial centre. It facilitates the development of infrastructure, adoption of technology, and upgrading of skills in the financial industry.
Ministry of Finance
The Ministry of Finance aims to advance the well-being and development of Singapore through Finance. The Ministry strives to achieve a balanced budget through prudent and sustainable fiscal policies, foster a regulatory environment conducive to business and enterprise, ensure prudent investment of the Government's reserves and other public funds, and set policies for government procurement, customs regulation, accounting standards and business regulation.
We achieve this together with our departments (Accountant-General’s Department, Singapore Customs and Vital), and statutory boards/bodies (Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority, Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore, Tote Board and Singapore Accountancy Commission).
