How will cities around the world cope with the resulting urban challenges? The Siemens Singapore City of the Future was conceived with a vision to create a place, where city authorities, planners, and infrastructure developers can discuss how to approach these new challenges through technology, innovation and progressive thinking.

  • Singapore's Next Generation TUAS Port (NGP 2030). The Tuas Terminal development is a centerpiece of Singapore’s ‘Next Generation Port Vision’ and testament to Singapore’s commitment as a global maritime nation. NGP 2030 will utilise a new generation of technologies to increase efficiency and productivity, maximise use, improve safety and security and raise the level of environmental sustainability. The Tuas Terminal will be developed in four phases over 30 years, with Phase 1 scheduled to be completed by the early 2020s. Phase 1 of the terminal will be able to handle about 20 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of cargo a year. The ongoing Phase 1 work will include reclaiming 294 hectares of land, dredging the Tuas basin and Temasek Fairway, as well as constructing the wharf structure. The entire Tuas Terminal could eventually handle 65 million TEUs of cargo annually, making it the largest single container terminal in the world. Venue information at mpa.gov.sg

The day will begin with a Singapore City Tour, taking in the sights of some of Singapore's attractions like Chinatown, Little India and Marina Bay. You will then get to explore the unique Peranakan Culture, a race of mixed descendants of the Straits - Chinese and Malay people. Peranakans are renowned for their dress, ornaments, jewellery and creative cuisine. Participants will see some of the old traditional Peranakan shop houses, including an exclusive visit to the home of a 7th generation Peranakan Baba. This will be followed by a delicious Peranakan-themed lunch. During the afternoon, participants will have the choice of shopping on the famous Orchard Road or have a reprieve from the tropical heat by heading to the cooled conservatory of one of Singapore's newest attractions—the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome at The Gardens by the Bay. These uniquely designed structures won the World Building of the Year award at the World Architecture Festival 2012.
