SG, China ink 3 MoUs on maritime collaboration 

One of the MoUs will explore the use of zero or near-zero-emission marine fuels.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has signed three Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with regional maritime administrations and partners in China to advance collaboration on digitalisation, decarbonisation, talent development, and information exchange. 

MPA-Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission 

The MoU aims to strengthen port and maritime ties between two of the world’s largest ports to foster mutual learning through information exchange on port and shipping developments, maritime policies and regulations, and training and research. The MoU also aims to co-develop digitalisation and decarbonisation solutions for shipping and port development.

MPA-Tianjin Port and Shipping Authority 

The MoU will discuss issues on maritime digitalisation and decarbonisation; exchange information and experiences on the development of shipping and regulatory framework, port developments, and maritime training; and facilitate maritime talent exchanges and collaborative opportunities in areas such as maritime research and development. 

MPA-China Classification Society 

Under the MoU, MPA and CCS will explore collaborations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the use of zero or near-zero emission marine fuels and marine battery technology; and co-innovate smart ships technologies with researchers, industry, and maritime startups through platforms such as PIER71™. It also aims to support the development of maritime talent and training through a scholarship programme and internship opportunities.
