Strengthening Singapore’s Position as a Global Maritime Hub

Emcee Singapore: Charmaine is honoured to host the Singapore Maritime Week, where Minister for Transport Chee Hong Tat emphasized that Singapore is making strides in maritime innovation and sustainability.

Mr Chee highlighted these forward-looking initiatives : 

🤝 Collaboration is key to driving maritime innovation in Singapore. Green and digital shipping corridors are paving the way for more sustainable and efficient maritime operations. Empowering vessel owners through just-in-time planning is reducing costs and minimizing carbon emissions. 

🔍 Looking ahead, Singapore has an ambitious roadmap for decarbonization and talent development. Investment in the next generation of tankers capable of bunkering higher blends of biofuel and methanol will significantly reduce vessel emissions. Leveraging maritime drones with 5G connectivity will enhance efficiency and safety within port waters by mid-2025. 

📚Singapore is establishing a Maritime Training Hub in collaboration with 23 key stakeholders. Commitment to developing a skilled workforce in the safe handling of alternative fuels and low- or zero-emission vessels will produce 10,000 maritime personnel by the 2030s. 

🏗️🚢And, Tuas Port, when completed in the 2040s, will be the world’s largest automated container terminal.
