SGC Breakfast Briefing on "Investment and Business Opportunities in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City"


About the Breakfast Briefing:

The Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City is a landmark bilateral project between the governments of China and Singapore. Located in the Tianjin Binhai New Area (45 km away from Tianjin City Centre), the 30-sq km Eco-City is envisioned to create a harmonious and sustainable community that meets the needs of an urbanizing China and will be a modern, green township where 350,000 residents can work, live, learn and play.

The Eco-City has been named by China’s State Council as the first National Green Development Demonstration Zone, and serves as a test-bed for new models of green development in China. To date, more than 2000 companies have established in the Eco-City to take advantage of this high profile platform.

This briefing shall provide the latest on Eco-City’s development, with focus on the assistance and support schemes offered to Singapore-based companies. It will also delve into specific examples on how companies are able to leverage on Eco-City’s platforms in seeking business and investment opportunities, particularly in the areas of Cleantech, ICT, Biomedical Sciences and Healthcare.
