ADB will work in partnership with a consortium of Singaporean-based companies and public sector body Singapore Co-operation Enterprise to ensure an annual pipeline of water projects worth $150m (USD). The consortium of water and construction companies comprising Crest Spring, The Konzen Group and United Engineers Singapore are expected to invest $6m (USD). Seethapathy Chander, deputy director general of ADB’s Private Sector Operations, said: "AIPD will be an innovative one-stop shop that provides the necessary resources and expertise to identify and develop projects from the time they are being drawn up until they are completed and are being considered for public-private partnership undertakings." Many countries in Asia are facing growing strains on water supply and an increase in pollution as they industrialise at rapid rates. AIPD’s will initially focus on China with Vietnam and India said to be next on the list. China’s government needs $140bn in investment to meet its targets to extend water supply coverage to 95% of the population and wastewater treatment to 70% of the population by 2010.
