The port authority released the overall bunkering figures on Friday during the launch of the Sea Transport Industry Transformation Map (ITM) at the annual Singapore Maritime Foundation new year cocktail reception.
Developed by MPA in partnership with the industry, unions and other government agencies, the Sea Transport ITM builds on MPA’s strategic long term plans to develop Singapore’s next-generation port while strengthening its international maritime centre (IMC).
Specific initiatives have been laid out under the Sea Transport ITM to catalyse innovation, drive productivity improvements, as well as enhance the skills of the maritime workforce.
The aim is to grow the sector’s value-add by S$4.5 billion ($3.39 million) and create more than 5,000 good jobs by 2025.
