Singapore experts share water management tips

Officials of the Haryana government on Monday met a team of experts from Singapore to discuss ways to tackle shortage of water supply in industrial areas here. The meeting was intended to introduce Singapore water supply models, including recycle and reuse concepts, and to share the understanding of existing water situation in the DMIC (Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor) region.

The two-member visiting delegates discussed the DMIC project, which covers areas of Manesar and Bawal Investment Region (MBIR).

Apart from the visiting team comprising chief executive officer of SCE, Wy Mun Kong, and vice president of construction consultancy CH2M HILL Vinod Singh, representatives of Singapore Public Utility Board also joined the meeting through video conferencing.

The team held separate meetings with officials of HSIIDC (Haryana State Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation), departments of irrigation, agriculture, and health to collect information to develop a proposal for technical cooperation between Singapore and the Haryana government for potential water sources development.

On Tuesday, the team will meet the managing director of DMIC in Delhi and visit Manesar Bawal Investment Region.

A presentation was also given by the team about sustainable water supply management in Singapore.

SCE was formed by the ministry of trade and industry and the ministry of foreign affairs to cater to the countries willing to implement Singapore’s development model.

SCE has carried out several projects in more than 30 countries in different parts of the world, including Asia Pacific, China, Middle East, North America, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.

Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE) was formed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Singapore to have an agency to respond effectively to the many foreign requests to tap into Singapore’s development experience.

SCE works closely with Singapore’s 15 ministries and over 60 statutory boards to tailor possible solutions to match the foreign parties’ needs. Solutions could include visit programmes, trainings, advisory services and even project implementation. Where necessary, SCE will invite participation from relevant private sector players, including representatives from trade and industry associations.

While SCE is glad to share Singapore’s lessons and experiences with others, we hasten to add that Singapore is also still learning. Indeed, we have found it necessary to adopt new strategies and policies from time to time in response to changing circumstances at home and abroad. Singapore certainly does not know it all nor have the answers for every situation. In fact, we welcome every opportunity to learn from others so as to improve ourselves.
