Belgium and Singapore: Climate change is a global challenge which requires a global response. It is therefore of paramount importance to bundle the forces and to strengthen international cooperation. When it comes to renewable energy, the country is a frontrunner.
Belgian technologies varying from offshore wind generated from windfarms, waste-to-energy technologies as well as electrolyzers for the production of hydrogen, are gaining traction worldwide. Meanwhile, the country aims to become a hub for the import and transit of green molecules. In these contexts, they see plenty of opportunities for cooperation with Singapore.
Along with this, the city-state’s Green Plan 2030 for example, offers exciting opportunities for collaboration and everyone therefore look forward to stepping up with the collaborative links with Singapore in order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. In light of the UN Climate Conference (COP27) in Egypt (6-18 Nov), this is a fitting moment to deepen Belgium-Singapore ties.
Furthermore, the Ambassador therefore had a meeting today with Mr Joseph Teo, Singapore’s Chief Negotiator for Climate Change. In addition, they mentioned in the statement, “Let’s move towards a greener future together!”
