Planning for Singapore’s Future

As a small city-state, comprehensive and integrated planning allows Singapore to optimise its limited land to meet the needs of current and future generations. This means taking the long-term approach to balancing the social, economic and environment considerations of urban development, and working closely amongst government agencies and the public when we produce and review our Master Plans.

Join us for a dialogue with Mr. Lim Eng Hwee, CEO of Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), to hear how Master Plan 2019 (MP19) will guide Singapore’s development over the next 10 to 15 years. MP19 focuses on planning for inclusive, sustainable and green neighbourhoods with community spaces and amenities. It also includes strategies that plan for the rejuvenation of familiar places and for creating capacity to meet Singapore’s future needs.

Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) also looks forward to collaborating with members of the French Chamber across different business activities and industries.

The dialogue will be moderated by Alexandre Parilusyan , co-president of  the Smart Cities and Mobility Committee at the French Chamber and-VP Business Transformation, Global Accounts Director at Dassault Systemes.
