About Infrastructure Asia

Overview

Infrastructure Asia supports Asia’s social and economic growth through infrastructure development.

Singapore is home to an established ecosystem of public sector agencies and private sector firms that include developers, engineering, procurement and construction companies, professional services firms, financial institutions, and multilateral development banks.

With our understanding of regional markets and our own development experience, Singapore is well-placed to serve Asia’s infrastructure needs and unlock the region’s infrastructure potential.

We enable good-fit solutions from companies and institutions in addressable infrastructure sub-segments in Asia, catalysing project development, financing and execution opportunities to meet the region’s growing needs.

We match-make organisations that are domain experts in their respective fields with regional governments, firms and multilateral development banks. At the same time, we bring various industry stakeholders across the value chain together to explore project opportunities in Asia.

We are set up by Enterprise Singapore and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

Our Focus

Overview

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) estimates that developing Asia will need to invest US$1.7 trillion annually in infrastructure until 2030 to maintain its growth momentum, tackle poverty and respond to climate change.

Infrastructure Asia looks at power, transport, urban and smart cities, and water and sanitation projects. Further, given the increasing need to ensure sustainable growth as well as deal with the impacts of climate change, Infrastructure Asia also works towards advancing sustainable infrastructure in the region.

Sustainable infrastructure

Sustainable infrastructure refers to the designing, building, and operating of structural elements in ways that do not diminish the social, economic and ecological processes required to maintain human equity, diversity, and the functionality of natural systems. Renewable energy projects, including floating solar panels, are some of the sustainable infrastructure projects that we look at.

The definitions of the focus sectors are as follows:

Energy infrastructure includes many components: generation, transmission, and various means of distribution of electricity.
Power refers to electricity generation, transmission and distribution from both conventional and renewable energy sources.
Social infrastructure can be broadly defined as the construction and maintenance of facilities which support social services. This includes healthcare and educational institutions.
Transport refers to railways, roads and bridges, ports, airports, urban public transport (metros, buses and taxis) and their supporting infrastructure (payment networks, security and surveillance etc.).
Urban and smart cities refer to a wide repertoire of technology enabled solutions ranging from urban mobility (driverless vehicles) to smart street lighting (energy saving, multi-purpose lamp posts) to smart city planning.
Water and sanitation refers to water supply pipelines, water treatment plants, desalination plants, sewage projects (sewage collection, treatment and disposal systems, water recycling plants), solid waste management, and storm water drainage systems.

The process

A successful infrastructure project requires effective planning, coordination and implementation among multiple stakeholders from start to end. Figure 1 below illustrates the key stages undertaken by real economy service providers and financiers in the life cycle and value chain of an infrastructure project.
