SINGAPORE (Oct 30): The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has launched a one-stop digital portal for maritime regulatory and port services transactions, that is expected to save the shipping industry an estimated 100,000 man-hours annually.

Announcing the launch of the portal at the opening of the two-day Global Maritime Forum (GMF) Annual Summit on Wednesday, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat outlined how the global maritime industry could take collective action for the future.

Heng, who is also Minister for Finance, says these could include renewing the commitment to rules-based multilateralism, advocating maritime sustainability, and fostering greater digital connectivity within the maritime value chain.
