We have established and invested in several strategic partnerships and platforms to enhance our resilience, competitive position and geographically expand across Asia. Working with like-minded, reputable and resilient strategic partners on several fronts has allowed us to pool our complementary capabilities and expertise to take on larger-scale projects and broaden our offerings to clients, while simultaneously reducing commercial and operational risks related to a particular geographic market, industry cluster or real estate sector. Activities under strategic partnerships potentially feed into our engineering & construction and real estate businesses.
