Singapore to host maritime summit
The Global Maritime Forum has chosen Singapore as the venue for its 2019 annual summit.
The summit, held in October next year, is organised by the international not-for-profit organisation and brings together industry leaders, policymakers, NGOs and other stakeholders to address challenges and opportunities in the maritime industry.
“The maritime industry is undergoing a transformation that has potential to bring about positive long-term change for the industry and society,” said Andrew Tan, chief executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.
“This will require closer dialogue and collaboration amongst public and private stakeholders from the international community. We look forward to welcoming key leaders from around the world to Singapore next October.”
Singapore was chosen in part because of its strategic location in the heart of Asia, its strong offshore sector and large number of shipping groups and maritime service providers.
Peter Stokes, chairman of the Global Maritime Forum, explained: “Singapore’s maritime cluster is known for its continued innovation and strong focus on talent development.”
“It connects Asia with the rest of the world which makes Singapore a natural meeting place for our next Annual Summit where we expect to see wide regional and international representation. The meeting will explore new solutions to collective challenges and seek to unlock new opportunities for sustainable growth.”
