Denmark and Singapore have been collaborating in the water space for the past many years, with the most recent five-year environmental collaboration agreement (MoU) between Singapore and Denmark, including water, signed in February 2020.
Join us, as we dive into Singaporean and Danish collaboration during Singapore Int. Water Week. We have secured keynote speakers and are pleased to announce that H.E Ms. Grace Fu, Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Singapore and H.E Ms. Lea Wermelin, The Minister for Environment of Denmark will speak live at the event. The keynotes are followed by moderated fireside CEO-chat by three of the leading water utilities in Denmark.

Paneltrack #1 focuses on business opportunities and operation models within Resource Recovery.
