Hwa Chongians Glean Insights On Futuristic City of Tomorrow18 Dec 2017
On 29 November 2017, 73 Bicultural Studies Programme (BSP) students and teachers visited the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC); a key collaborative project between the Chinese and Singaporean government akin to the renowned Suzhou Industrial Park and Tianjin Eco City.
Many students were amazed by this ‘Future City’ which is a model for economic transformation and industrial upgrading. One notable similarity between SSGKC and Singapore is in urban planning where its neighbourhood centre functions like our community centers as hubs promoting sports, culture, healthcare and offering family care services.
The students and teachers were also welcomed by Hwa Chong alumnus Mr Ang Boon Peng, Vice President, Strategic Collaboration at SSGKC Investment and Development Company Limited. Mr Ang shared meaningful insights on SSGKC’s development as well as on the current Sino-Singapore relationship. Our students left with a deeper understanding and renewed appreciation of the diplomatic ties and mutual benefits essential for future development and cooperation.
