High local costs and limited human resources remain the two largest sources of complaints for those involved in shipping in Singapore, according to a new publication from Splash. Our latest Singapore Market Report includes a survey of 250 people in maritime in the Lion City which had a series of topical questions about conducting business in what has become – according to many polls – the world’s most vibrant shipping hub.
The 60-page magazine looks at every facet of maritime Singapore from the port, to owners, shipmanagers, the fight against piracy and what the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore is up to.
Furthermore, in a special to celebrate the republic’s 50th anniversary, award winning author Paul French provides readers with an exclusive history of maritime Singapore, which also features some great archival photography.
Commented editorial director, Sam Chambers: “Country reports – especially ones focusing on Singapore – have tended to be all a bit soft focus, glossing over issues without digging too deep. Splash’s latest magazine will serve as an important reminder to the authorities in Singapore that there is still plenty of work to be done if the country is to retain its leading maritime position.”
The magazine is being distributed worldwide, but readers of Splash can access the publication free of charge online by clicking here.
