BCDA, Enterprise Singapore hold second round of B2B meetings for New Clark City

Pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed during the state visit of President
Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in September this year, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority
(BCDA) and Enterprise Singapore conducted a second round of business-to-business (B2B) and
industry-focused meetings in Singapore with some of the region’s urban development leaders to
move forward with the implementation of its plans and projects for New Clark City.

The MOU signed between the BCDA and Enterprise Singapore in September 2022 aims to foster
collaboration on business or investment opportunities in New Clark City, technologies exchange, and
bilateral promotions of businesses. Among the companies they conducted meetings with in Singapore are in the fields of diversified environmental services, engineering, information and communications technology (ICT), aviation solutions, and smart city technologies.

The BCDA delegation, led by its President and CEO Aileen Zosa, also met with officials of Singapore’s leading environmental services provider Chye Thiam Maintenance to pitch its projects and programs for New Clark City. –BCDA photo.

“As urbanization continues, we at BCDA understand that smart city technologies and public transport
solutions are important in realizing a sustainable and inclusive future for New Clark City. We are very
fortunate to partner with Enterprise Singapore who helps us forge connections with some of the
global urban mobility and smart city leaders. Through their expertise and experience, we will be able
to embed global best practices not just in New Clark City but across all the infrastructure projects we
are developing,” said BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Aileen R. Zosa.

Among the New Clark City projects pitched were the Common ICT Infrastructure Network, the Data
Center Colocation Facility Project, the New Clark City Affordable Housing Project, the New Clark City
Estate and Facilities Management Services, as well as the Operations and Maintenance of New Clark
City’s Sports Facilities.

Its MOU with Enterprise Singapore enables BCDA to increase its understanding of emerging
technologies and solutions used in urban development via knowledge sharing and awareness building
activities. The MOU also facilitates access for Singapore companies and relevant stakeholders
interested to partner in the development of New Clark City.

On the sidelines of the second round of B2B meetings in Singapore, the BCDA delegation also attended
the recently-concluded 2022 Singapore International Transport Congress & Exhibition (SITCE), the leading public transport event in Asia Pacific, where it gathered over 130 urban mobility innovators
across the globe.
