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).
