Water/Wastewater Opportunities in Southeast Asia

  • 28 Apr 2020
  • 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
  • Online

Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development Job Creation and Trade, in collaboration with Global Affairs Canada and Québec’s Ministry of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade, invite you to join a webinar on April 28th from 9:00 am – 10:00 am EST, with a focus on real time opportunities in Water/Wastewater in three key markets in Southeast Asia; Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Did you know that:

  • Singapore’s water sector continues to experience strong growth, with a robust water ecosystem anchoring Singapore as a leading global hydrohub. With over 200 water companies and more than 25 research institutes, Singapore continues to focus on developing innovative solutions, accelerating the commercialization and export of technologies, and building a range of capabilities.
  • Water management in Indonesia is in a rapid growth stage.  The recent commitment of over $400 billion dollars in infrastructure build over the next five years, includes significant investment in clean water and water treatment.  Many regional governments have urged their water utilities to seek partnership with private entities through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme to build and develop drinking water supply systems (SPAM) to overcome clean water shortages in their areas.  Other solutions being considered to overcome clean water scarcity are; wastewater treatment, reduction of non-revenue water and desalination. However, being a price sensitive market, Indonesia relies very much on private companies and foreign investor’s participation given the public finance constraints.
  • A lack of waste water treatment is one of Vietnam’s most pressing environmental concerns. Only 21% of waste water in urban cities is properly treated, the rest is discharged directly into the environment and is polluting the surface water. Given public finance constraints and the phasing out of Official Development Assistance (ODA) from major donors such as the World Bank, the Government hopes to source a significant portion of the capital through Public Private Partnerships (PPP), including foreign investors. There is also increasing interest from many local investors who are building small to medium scale water supply and waste water treatment projects.

Join us on April 28th from 9:00 am – 10:00 am EST to learn more!  Please email Ritishka Grover, Regional Trade Commissioner, Clean Technology (APAC), Ritishka.Grover@international.gc.ca  to register for the webinar or feel free to contact Eve.Rotstein@ontario.ca  if you have further questions.
