Under this partnership, the Botanic Gardens, which is a unit of the Singapore National Parks Board, and the AHSI will cooperate to foster capacity building and training in horticulture through knowledge sharing on management and appreciation of the living heritage.

The organisations will work together on multiple fronts such as public interpretation, educational outreach activities and skill development for staff.

The AHSI and Singapore Botanic Gardens will also collaborate towards implementing joint horticulture projects of mutual interest.

"AHSI is excited about the partnership with Singapore Botanic Gardens. It is not only one of the best park attractions in Asia, but also the only tropical garden to be honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site," a statement said.
