About 600 participants to attend MPA’s 9th international safety sea week
The annual event will discuss issues and practices on maritime safety
In its ninth International Safety Sea Week, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) will bring top practitioners from the international maritime community to tackle sea safety issues.
The event was launched by Senior Minister of State for Transport and Finance Chee Hong Tat at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre from 30 to 31 August. The conference, which is in a hybrid setup, runs from 30 August to 2 September.
Over 600 participants from about 30 countries will participate in the sessions whilst 20 local and international speakers will be featured in the conference, titled, “Riding the Waves for Maritime Safety.”
To build maritime safety capabilities, the MPA said technology and connectivity must be used such as developing 5G mobile network capacities to improve digital connectivity at Port of Singapore.
Full 5G coverage in the maritime sector’s major anchorages, fairways, terminals, and boarding grounds is scheduled to be delivered by 2025.
