Japan and Singapore to collaborate on R&D projects in used water treatment
Singapore’s national water agency PUB and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (Nedo) of Japan signed a Letter of
Intent yesterday to work together on R&D projects in the field of used water treatment. The projects will focus on enhancing the quality of used water and producing industrial grade water. Work is expected to start in January. Nedo is Japan’s largest public management organisation promoting R&D and the deployment of industrial, energy and environmental technologies. Water has been identified as a key engine of growth for the local economy. A total of  $330 million has been committed over five years to develop the sector into a
hotbed of water technologies. Singapore is wooing R&D investments from international water players and encouraging local firms to venture overseas.

Blackrock is focused on companies that

1. have individual stock specific catalysts to release additional value

2. benefit the most from an improvement in the macro environment, through either higher oil prices or increased industry capital expenditure.

3. oil services

(Backdrop of oil price driven earnings revisions is a positive one, there are many company-specific factors to highlight even in flat price environemnt. Companies that are low-cost producrs and have strong resource positions, and high impact exploration programmes that are attracting value.)
