Infrastructure Asia (Infra Asia), Singapore Management University (SMU) and the World Bank Group (WBG) have partnered to design and develop a capacity building programme for senior and mid-level regional government officials in the infrastructure sector. The programme was launched at a virtual signing ceremony on 1 June 2020, graced by Ms. Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Finance and Education.
The programme combines the strengths of each partner – Infra Asia’s connections with players in the regional infrastructure ecosystems, SMU’s industry collaborative networks, and the WBG’s global development expertise. Called “Growing Infrastructure – Enabling & Structuring for Private Sector Participation in Finance and Innovation”, the programme aims to raise participants’ awareness of available solutions to support sustainable and resilient infrastructure development for the region’s long term economic growth. Participants would also be equipped with the knowledge and skills to create a regulatory environment that is friendly towards private sector involvement in infrastructure.
