April 2023 saw the international community gather for the much anticipated Singapore Maritime Week, held from the 24th to the 28th of April 2023. The week encompassed a diverse collection of flagship conferences, dialogues, exhibitions and social events in celebration of the maritime sector.
The range of activities and events reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Singapore as a global maritime hub and leading international maritime centre.
