The upcoming Punggol Digital District, which will be a hub for cyber-security and technology firms in Singapore, is set to feature an environment that balances technology with lush greenery.

The district's project manager, Mr Chan Ee Mun, revealed project details, such as an emphasis on industry-academia collaboration.

A landmark idea of the project is the "exchange" of spaces, where classes could be on a company's premises, and students can mingle with start-up founders.

The project will comprise a JTC Corporation business park, the Singapore Institute of Technology and other facilities.
