All Headlines 14:50 July 09, 2018

SEOUL, July 9 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Monday it will hold a conference on water businesses in Singapore this week to help nurture the industry and support local firms' inroads into foreign markets.

The 10th Water Business Forum is taking place on Wednesday, co-hosted by the Ministry of Environment and the Korea Water Forum, a Seoul-headquartered organization, on the sidelines of the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), a three-day global water conference that opened earlier Monday in the city state.

It's one of the world's top-three water-related events, along with World Water Forum and Stockholm Water Week.

The foreign and environment ministries are taking part in the Singapore event in a bid to publicize South Korea's water management technologies. The authorities are joined by South Korean start-ups and small-and medium-sized companies that do water business.

More than 100 people are expected to attend the water forum to be organized by the ministries with the theme of "Smart Integrated Water Management for Sustainable Cities."

Environment Minister Kim Eun-kyung and Diane d'Arras, president of the International Water Association, plan to address the session to be held at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center in Singapore on Wednesday afternoon.
