SILA will cooperate in developing the business capabilities of our SILA Recognized Practice(s) in Singapore, raising their profiles to attain greater representation locally, regionally and internationally. SILA hopes to create a well-integrated and established network not only within the landscape industry, but also among key stakeholders and partners abroad. Our business development plans will assist our landscape professional practices in profiling the highest standards of work and design. SILA Recognized Practice(s) would greatly benefit from this thrust as SILA strives to assist promising practices to achieve potential clientele through an enhanced network in the design and landscape industry. In 2010, SILA joined seven other professional institutes to form DesignS network, an alliance under the initiative of DesignSingapore, to collectively market and launch the design professions of Singapore to overseas market.
