India expressed interests and plans to Capitaland to build a 100 more Smart Cities and Ascendas-Singbridge & SembCorp Development is bidding to be master developer for Andhra Pradesh’s new capital Amaravati.

Temasek Holding’s involvement in the development of India and China (Chongqing Raffles City for example) is phenomenal, building mega infrastructures, immovable assets, and creating jobs & an economic multiplier therein.
