The second edition of the Youth@SMW this year is conceptualised and fronted by our MaritimeSG Youth Ambassadors. The event brings together industry leaders and youths across various institutions to share with them the exciting careers in maritime, and the various pathways they can embark on to be part of this dynamic industry at the cusp of transformation. Industry representatives are invited to network with students from the Institutes of Higher Learning over lunch and share with them the diverse career opportunities in maritime. Through this event, we hope that more youths will be inspired to explore the maritime industry as a career choice.
