I attended the Mayors Forum and learned a lot from other mayors and city managers who talked about how their cities developed and challenges they faced… That’s excellent for learning and I hope we can benefit from it by applying what we have learnt for the future.
HIS EXCELLENCY DR. ALI YOUSIF ABDULNABI AL-SHUKRI Minister of Planning, Iraq
World Cities Summit is definitely very useful to network with many high-level city representatives and learn about each city’s experiences and initiatives. Such forums and conferences are very beneficial in exchanging excellent solutions to problems faced in city planning.
What we can learn from Singapore is its very relevant industrialization experiences… Singapore was able to upgrade and transform itself from a manufacturing industry to a knowledge industry, including biotechnology and medical services, which can be exported to the whole world.
JEREMY BENTHAM Vice President, Global Business Environment, Shell
Having a forum where people come together from the different sectors that is seen to be independent and integrated is a very positive contribution to actually dealing with issues… Singapore is seen as a model for integrated city development and it has become an urban powerhouse.
