The participants were very impressed with NParks' efforts and strategies in greening and shaping Singapore's landscape over the past 46 years. Besides sharing sessions and learning journey on our CIAG efforts, the participants were introduced to one of Singapore's newest landmarks – Gardens by The Bay. The participants were impressed by the high-tech and innovative landscaped gardens as well as the spectacular view of the Super Trees and Flower Dome.
