Singapore: SeaShip News today launches its second annual Singapore magazine, taking a holistic look at the city-state’s maritime and offshore industries. As well as the print edition, readers can read the magazine online via this site for free.
The magazine looks at every facet of Singapore’s maritime make up and identifies both strengths and weaknesses in the Lion Republic’s shipping infrastructure.
A key issue identified in the magazine, both by the writers and the many readers who filled in an online poll, is in securing enough qualified talent for the maritime sectors. Close to 500 people completed SeaShip News’s online poll about Singapore maritime, the results of which will undoubtedly be read by senior names in government as it paints a worrying picture about the nation’s ability to fill its varied maritime ranks.
Sectors for coverage include finance, yards, law, ports, bunkering, shipmanagement, owners and offshore.
The magazine also incorporates the thoughts of more than 20 shipowners, and contains a useful timeline detailing every key news event connected to Singapore shipping and offshore thus far this year.
Commented editor, Sam Chambers, “Running in at 60 pages this is the most comprehensive guide from any media outlet to detail all that is happening in Singapore maritime.”
