Injazat, a G42 company and the UAE’s home-grown technology champion, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Singapore’s leading tech trade association, SGTech in order to explore and identify new business opportunities between the countries.

By signing the MoU, Injazat has become the first international company to be included in the SGTech association, which was previously exclusive to Singaporean companies.

SGTech offers focused support and development to strategic and emerging industry segments of Singapore’s technology sector with the goal of developing a thriving ecosystem for innovation and technology.

As a result of the collaboration, companies in both countries will work together to facilitate cooperation and coordination between tech entities and work together on projects such as smart city technologies and digital transformation.

HE Jamal Abdulla AlSuwaidi, the Ambassador of The United Arab Emirates to the Republic of Singapore, said that “this partnership between the UAE and Singapore SGTech will accelerate tech innovation in the two countries and beyond. It reflects the special and deeply rooted bilateral relations binding the Republic of Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.”

Key initiator and facilitator of this cross-country collaboration, Mr. Martin Yates, CTO at Injazat, stated that, “As countries strive to become globally competitive, establishing international ties is becoming increasingly important. By working across borders, collaborations can help reduce complexity, increase innovation and efficiencies, and allows us to focus on bigger projects.”

“With equally ambitious digital economy strategies and fast-flourishing technology ecosystems, there is a growing convergence of sharing between GCC and South-East Asia countries. As the gateway to Singapore’s tech industry, our partnership with SGTech presents a great opportunity for the UAE’s tech industry to gain valuable knowledge and expand business horizons globally,” noted Mr. Yates.
