Abu Dhabi, both countries have agreed to build on their economic partnership.

Singapore company registration specialist Rikvin is positive that the discussions following the 6th Joint Forum will open more doors for Singapore businesses and create more employment opportunities for professionals from both economies to tap.

The forum, which was organized by International Enterprise Singapore (IE Singapore) and Abu Dhabi’s Executive Affairs Authority (EAA), was attended by approximately 100 government and business representatives from both countries.

In gist, both Singapore and Abu Dhabi have agreed to work together on the areas of 1) urban planning, 2) waste and wastewater management, 3) R&D for semiconductors and 4) media development. In the area of urban planning, Abu Dhabi’s Urban Planning Council (UPC) and Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) have signed a 3-year Memorandum of Understanding Singapore to pave the way for 1) information exchanges relating to sector developments in respective economies and 2) the development of human capital between UPC and URA.

Rikvin is optimistic that the UPC-URA MoU will create more employment and professional exchange opportunities between both countries as RFPs may be granted to private sector vendors. R&D
