The 15th Singapore Maritime Week (SMW) 2021 will take place from 19 to 23 April 2021. The week-long event will bring together industry experts and thought leaders in the maritime sector to discuss the changing face of the industry, and explore solutions that will enable the industry to thrive in the post-Covid-19 environment.
The event is organized by the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), in collaboration with industry stakeholders and research and educational institutions. Themed “New Frontiers, Shifting Paradigms”, it will include 19 events and take place through a mix of virtual and hybrid formats, focusing on the major challenges facing the industry and emerging opportunities for growth with the transformation of international trade.
Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Singapore’s Minister for Transport, will open the Singapore Maritime Week on 19 April 2021. During the opening ceremony, he will launch the second phase of digitalPORT@SGTM which will progressively roll out a Just-In-Time (JIT) module for port stakeholders such as ship owners, agents, terminal operators, and marine service providers. This will enhance the turnaround time of ships calling at the Port of Singapore, increase port efficiency and reduce business costs.
With its myriad of knowledge exchange platforms, engaging dialogues, and insightful conferences, SMW 2021 will shine a spotlight on critical areas for the continued vibrancy and diversity of Singapore as a global hub port and leading international maritime center.
