Singapore Maritime Week 2018: Positioning for Future Growth

18 Apr 2018

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) Tuesday announced Singapore Maritime Week (SMW) 2018, which runs from 21 to 29 April at the republic.

“This is an exciting time for the maritime industry,” said Mr Andrew Tan, Chief Executive of MPA.

“With the advent of Industry 4.0, rise of e-commerce and changes to global logistics supply chains, the industry has to transform itself.

“SMW 2018 will not only bring together the who’s who from the global maritime industry but also business leaders and leading experts from non-maritime and adjacent sectors to delve deep into the dynamic maritime environment.

“Through events such as the flagship Singapore Maritime Lecture, the inaugural Global Perspectives Forum and the 3rd Singapore Maritime Technology Conference, panellists and participants will not only debate emerging trends but also new strategies as the maritime industry readies itself for the future.”

The global shipping industry has been undergoing both cyclical and structural changes in recent years. While the industry still faces challenges from geopolitical uncertainties, industry consolidation, regulatory pressures and disruptive technologies, there have also been promising signs of recovery.

Against this backdrop, SMW 2018 will centre on the theme, “Positioning for Future Growth – Driving Connectivity, Innovation and Talent”.

Organised by the MPA, SMW is a key platform for the industry to gather and discuss the pressing and emerging issues driving the regional and international maritime landscape.

The 13th edition of SMW brings the international maritime community together for 19 forums and conferences, 11 networking receptions and four public outreach activities.
