      A centerpiece of Singapore’s ‘Next Generation Port Vision’ and testament to Singapore’s commitment as a global maritime nation. It utilizes a new generation of technologies to increase efficiency and productivity, maximize use, improve safety and security, and raise the level of environmental sustainability.

      2. AECOM: Digital Engineering
      AECOM will share best practices in embracing new technology to deliver better outcomes across built environment assets.

      3. Transport: Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High-Speed Rail (HSR) Infrastructure
      The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) is a joint project between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore that provides a high speed transport link between the two capital cities. With stations in Kuala Lumpur's Bandar Malaysia and Singapore's Jurong East, it should cut the travel time between the two cities to 90 minutes.

      4. Water: Deep Tunnel Sewerage System
      The Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) is one of Singapore's national water agency’s biggest projects and one of the most significant used water projects in Asia. When completed, it will support Singapore’s population growth and free up land for other higher-value developments.

      4:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
