Trade agency IE Singapore has rolled out two new initiatives to help Singapore capitalise on the need for infrastructure development in Asia.

The first is an internship programme offered in collaboration with the National University of Singapore.

It will give tertiary students the chance to work for project developers, consultancies, project finance banks and others in the infrastructure development sector.

The second is a $17 million collaboration between IE Singapore and the Asian Development Bank that aims to work with governments in the region to structure public-private infrastructure development partnerships.
