SBF Infrastructure CommitteeA private sector-led initiative, the SBF Infrastructure Committee (SBF IC) brings together the Singapore business community to foster capabilities in key focus sectors. The committee aims to build a robust infrastructure ecosystem to help Singapore companies seize regional opportunities. SBF IC will complement Infrastructure Asia, which is driven by the Government, to develop Singapore as the infrastructure hub for Asia.
Officially launched on 27 August 2018 at the 4th Singapore Regional Business Forum, the SBF IC will be project-driven and will focus on four sectors – utilities, transport, telecommunications, built environment – across two geographical regions, namely Southeast Asia and South Asia.
SBF IC’s Founding Chairman is Mr Pek Lian Guan, SBF Vice Chairman and Executive Director and CEO of Tiong Seng Holdings Ltd. The committee consists of 14 members who come from infrastructure-related sectors in Singapore, such as construction, utilities, urban planning, and legal and financial services.
SBF IC's Sub-Committees
In 2019, at the inaugural Singapore Regional Infrastructure Summit, Mr Pek announced the formation of the Built Environment Sub-Committee (BES) and the Water and Waste Sub-Committee (WWS). These two sub-committees will identify key concerns which are affecting the corresponding sectors and communities.
