The MOU between the Bureau of Public Works of Shenzhen Longhua District and Meinhardt Group encompasses professional consultancy, and technical services and support in relation to urban development and construction projects.

It was signed by Mr Xiong Bin, Director of the Bureau of Public Works of Shenzhen Longhua District, and Mr Go Yang San, Managing Director of Meinhardt Singapore. And officiated and witnessed by the Honourable Deputy District Mayor of Shenzhen Longhua District People’s Government, Mr Wang Chao Cheng, and Mr Omar Shahzad, Group CEO of Meinhardt.

The ceremony took place on 11 December at the China (Shenzhen Longhua)-Singapore Economic and Trade Cooperation Seminar which was organised by the Shenzhen Longhua District People’s Government in partnership with Meinhardt Group. It was held at The Singapore EDITION and attended by a high-level delegation from Shenzhen, China, including Mr Wang, Mr Xiong, Mr Jiang Yu Liang, Chief Officer of the Branch Bureau of Longhua of the Bio Environment of Shenzhen Municipality, and Mr Bai Hong Tao, Chairman of Shenzhen Longhua Drainage Co., Ltd.

The seminar was a remarkable gathering of distinguished guests, industry leaders, and visionary minds from both China and Singapore.

We also had the privilege of hosting prominent speakers such as Mr Omar Shahzad, Meinhardt’s Group CEO, who shared invaluable insights on the firm’s journey towards becoming the largest privately held engineering firm in Asia, as well as the key projects and infrastructure that it has helped to build and develop in China; Mr Tay Lian Chew, Deputy CEO of Singapore Cooperation Enterprise, who delivered a speech on the common challenges that Shenzhen and Singapore face in the course of developing a liveable city and the opportunities for collaboration; Mr Pang Yee Ean, Founder of Urbina Capital, who shared his wealth of experience from leadership roles at Surbana Jurong Capital and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and delved into the realm of infrastructure and urban development, as well as Mr Xiong who highlighted the remarkable achievements of the Bureau of Public Works of Shenzhen Longhua District and its contributions to Longhua District’s development.

We recognise the world is full of consulting engineers, planners and managers. We must therefore have visible differentiating factors that set us apart. These include design of smart and innovative solutions that cost less and can be built quickly and are indeed sustainable. Meinhardt has an enviable enviable track record in the built environment sector that is second to none: but we cannot sit on our past laurels. We must continue to excel in our service to our clients and maintain our goal of offering powerful engineering solutions that others will find hard to match.

This conference and this evening holds special significance for us as it is about looking at our past and learning what we could have done better, navigating the present and more importantly charting a visionary course for the future. Our company leaders must continue to inspire and motivate our staff, place clients as priority number one and we must jointly work for the vision we have set – we do not want to be the biggest, but we do want to be the best.
