AmCham Singapore and the US-ASEAN Business Council is pleased to invite you to the Briefing on ASEAN Smart Cities Network.

As this year’s ASEAN Chair, Singapore has proposed to establish an ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN). The ASCN is envisioned as a collaborative platform where up to three cities from each ASEAN Member State (AMS) work towards the common goal of smart and sustainable urban development. Specifically, the ASCN aims to:

 

·         Facilitate cooperation on smart cities development

·         Catalyse bankable projects with the private sector

·         Secure funding and support from ASEAN’s external partners


On May 22-25, 2018, ASEAN cities and their National Representatives to ASCN held a Smart Cities Governance Workshop. As part of the workshop, Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs  invited partner countries including the United States to participate in a full day meeting on Friday, May 25, where ASEAN cities shared their plans.

AmCham Singapore representatives will conduct the briefing on the outcomes of this meeting for AmCham members.  We recommend companies in the infrastructure, transportation, waste management, energy and info-communications technology (ICT) industries to join us for this session.  Please review the following documents in advance:
