The republic of Singapore is scheduled to be the next destination for the Global Maritime Forum’s Annual Summit on 30-31 October 2019.
The Global Maritime Forum is an international not-for-profit organization committed to shaping the future of global seaborne trade.
The high-level meeting will bring together key industry leaders with policymakers, experts, NGOs and other influential decision-makers and opinion shapers to address global challenges and opportunities that are particular important to 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,” says Andrew Tan Chief Executive of Maritime & 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.”
Attendance at the Global Maritime Forum’s Annual Summit is by invitation only. It is hosted in cities around the world on a rotational basis.
“Singapore’s maritime cluster is known for its continued innovation and strong focus on talent development,” says Peter Stokes Chairman of the Global Maritime Forum.
“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.”
