|1.55 pm||Plenary 1: Disrupting the Infrastructure Market in Asia|
The global economy is increasingly uncertain. New forces are coming into play – rising protectionism, support for the populist agenda etc. How are these forces influencing and shaping the infrastructure market in Asia? Do they affect how countries in Asia prioritise their projects? Are there any market specific trends? How do we bring in long term financing for infrastructure amidst this uncertain climate? How can the private sector play a role?
|2.50pm||Plenary 2: Building Next-Gen Smart Infrastructure in Asia|
Infrastructure development is not spared from digitalisation and constant disruption by new technologies. While technology can help increase infrastructure efficiency, it will also render existing infrastructure obsolete. How will the next generation of smart city infrastructure look like? What are the implementation hurdles to be overcome? Looking back on Asia’s progress thus far, are there best practices or standards which we can adopt? Is there a possibility for developing Asia to leapfrog developed countries by harnessing innovation?

|Session 1: Distributed Solutions in Asia|
Small-scale solutions such as distributed generation have been touted as the way forward to support development in small and scattered communities. Is this the way forward for Asia market? Can distributed solutions be more cost effective and sustainable? How do we finance such projects?
|Session 2: Connecting the World with Rail Projects |
Rail projects are important for building overland connectivity and enabling development. However, rail projects are capital intensive and difficult to structure. What are the best practices in rail project planning and development, and how can private sector players prepare themselves to enter this sector? What are some upcoming technologies which can increase the capital efficiency of rail projects?
