From 29 November to 3 December 2020, over 50 European companies will be part of the virtual Environment and Water Technologies Business mission to South East Asia to meet with industry players and partners in the region. 

“As part of the European Green Deal, environmentally sustainable technologies are at the core of the EU’s priorities. I encourage industry players from the region to connect with their European counterparts to discuss collaborations that are mutually-beneficial for their businesses,” says Barbara Plinkert, European Union Ambassador to Singapore. 

“The EU has great experience and innovative solutions to offer for water treatment, recycling and waste management that could be shared with the region.
