‘Embracing Construction of Tomorrow’: Singapore to host 47th IFAWPCA Convention in April 2025

Singapore Contractors Association Limited (SCAL) has assumed the chairmanship of the International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors’ Associations (IFAWPCA) for the new term 2023-2025, and will be hosting the 47th IFAWPCA Convention, scheduled to take place at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore from 7 to 11 April 2025.

This significant regional gathering brings together industry leaders, stakeholders and experts from the construction sector across Asia and Western Pacific. The last edition was held in November 2023 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

According to SCAL, the IFAWPCA Convention 2025 will be themed ‘Embracing Construction of Tomorrow’, which reflects Singapore’s commitment to exploring transformative ideas and technologies, sustainable practices, and collaborative solutions that will help shape the industry’s future.

The event will include a business forum featuring a diverse range of topics as well as panel discussions and an exhibition showcase aimed at exploring emerging trends, fostering partnerships and promoting sustainable practices within the construction sector. Another highlight is the Emerging Young Leaders programme, which will bring together aspiring individuals and foster their growth and impact within their respective communities.

IFAWPCA comprises the fraternity of builders from 18 member countries and regions in Asia and Western Pacific. The organisation plays a critical role in promoting international fellowship and cooperation; in developing beneficial relationships between governments and contractors in the region; and in establishing cooperative working arrangements in the furtherance of civil and building construction projects.
