Embrace technology to improve development of sustainable infrastructure: Indranee Rajah – The Straits Times

SINGAPORE – With more data, financing sources and better use of the right technology, it is now possible to plan, design, construct, upgrade and maintain all types of infrastructure so that they are more sustainable, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Indranee Rajah.

Ms Indranee, who is also Second Minister for National Development and Finance, said that despite significant efforts by governments around the world to catalyse sustainable financing and investing, Covid-19 has strained already limited financial resources.

“To ensure that the development of sustainable infrastructure continues to advance in tandem with population and economic growth, we need to prioritise projects and embrace technology to support growth areas that align with the trinity of national interests, regional needs and global trends.”
