24 Aug 2021 | BY SUE-ANN TAN, THE STRAITS TIMES

Nine agreements were inked between Singapore and Chongqing businesses yesterday to further cross-border digital collaborations in a wide range of sectors, including manufacturing, trade and logistics, and healthcare.

These reflect the "solid foundation" laid over the past five years that has helped to catalyse collaborations and innovation between Singapore and Chongqing companies, said Mr Lew Chuen Hong, chief executive of Singapore's Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

"By leveraging on Chongqing's strengths as the advanced manufacturing and logistics hub for China and Singapore as a trade and financing hub for South-east Asia, I am certain our collaborations will result in many significant projects for the region," he said at the International Dedicated Connectivity forum, held as part of the Smart China Expo 2021.
