With a population size similar to Denmark’ s, Singapore’ s land area is just slightly bigger than Bornholm. With limited land for farming, Singapore is heavily reliant on food imports. Today, 90% of the country’ s nutritional needs are imported, but an ambitious national strategy aims to change that outlook and ensure diversity in supply and a higher degree of self-suffiency. Led by the ambition to drive ’the future of food’ , Singapore is investing significantly in aquaculture, AgriTech and FoodTech to develop its urban farming capabilities and innovate food production through R&D. Right now, Singapore is looking for partners with expertise, experience and next-gen technologies to accelerate its local food production to 30% by 2030. The Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore is pleased to invite you for a webinar with Singapore Economic Development Board and key industry players to get a taste of country’ s investment plans and not least to learn how you can be a central partner in fulfilling Singapore’ s food strategy.
