Singapore Maritime Week (SMW)

In view of the current global COVID-19 situation and in consultation with our partners, we have decided to postpone SMW events originally slated from 18th to 24th April 2020. Some events will be postponed to the second half of this year while others will reconvene at SMW 2021. This reconfiguration would allow maximum participation given the international nature of SMW events. We will share more details at a later date. We hope to receive your continued support and participation in our events to be held in the second half of this year, and look forward to welcoming you at next year’s SMW.
SMW 2021 will be held from 17th to 25th April 2021.

Preparing future-ready skilled workforce

AS Singapore's maritime sector is expected to create over 5,000 good jobs by 2025 and create S$4.5 billion in value add, talent development is a key focus in this direction and a lot of investment is being done in the process.


Unions actively supporting talent development

THE labour movement has been actively engaging companies as well as workers in the maritime sector to upskill and reskill with the aim of upgrading and talent development in this important industry. Singapore's status as an international maritime hub contributes 7 per cent of the country's GDP.
