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.
