GIWEH at the 10th Water Business Forum, Singapore

On the 11th July 2018, GIWEH participated in the 10th edition of the Water Business Forum, a global platform for international cooperation held in Singapore during the Singapore International Water Week 2018, organized by the Korea Water Forum.

Bringing together the public and private sectors, the forum provides a precious space for dissemination and sharing in the water sector and sustainable development. Reflecting the need to involve all actors in water development and management, the forum aims to connect governments, businesses, NGOs and international organizations to create new business opportunities and catalyze cooperation across borders and sectors.

The session was opened by the Minister of Environment of the Republic of Korea, Ms. Eunkyung Kim. She was followed by Mr. Dongkyu Lee, Mr. Jong-soo Yoon, and Mr. Henk Ovink, who presented their congratulatory remarks. The keynote speaker for the event was Ms. Diane D'Arras, President of the International Water Association (IWA). 

Director General of GIWEH and Board Member of Swiss Water Partnership, Dr. Nidal Salim, was among the panel members for the discussion on "Requirements to carry out Smart Integrted Water Management for Sustainable Cities", alongside Mr. Takuya Kamata of the World Bank, Dr. Stefanos Fotiou of UN ESCAP, Dr. Shahbaz Khan of UNESCO, Mr. Pierre Flamand of the Japan Sanitation Consortium, and Mr. Sanghoon Cha of K-Water.
