The Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation has forged a five-year partnership with UNESCO to support five cycles of the Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation. In 2022, 13 projects from six countries, namely Afghanistan, China, India, Iran, Nepal and Thailand have been recognised, covering outstanding work on archaeological sites, cultural landscapes, urban streetscapes and ancient hydrological systems. Mr Daryl Ng, Director of NTFCF and Deputy Chairman of Sino Group, addressed the 2022 award winners, congratulating them on their remarkable achievements.
This is our second year of partnership in promoting transformative heritage conservation practices in the Asia-Pacific region. It holds special meaning for us as the historic Tai O Heritage Hotel, Hong Kong’s first UNESCO-awarded hotel, celebrated a decade of community making in 2022.
A committed corporate citizen, the Group has worked on a significant number of heritage projects across the region to preserve cultural heritage and collective stories for future generations, including:
- The heritage-listed former Sydney general post office (currently The Fullerton Hotel Sydney);
- Singapore’s 73rd National Monument, the former Fullerton Building (currently The Fullerton Hotel Singapore);
- Clifford Pier, Customs House and The Fullerton Waterboat House in Singapore (currently The Fullerton Heritage); and
- The restoration of the Great Wall and Yanxi Gong in Beijing
