Singapore's Rebound Benefits Shipping Event


While still one of the world's most important maritime centres, Singapore has undoubtedly suffered of late. It endured the world's deepest recession last year, its worst economic year since gaining independence more than 30 years ago. There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel. The country is bouncing quickly back to growth. It appears that GDP growth in 2002 will be better than 3.4 per cent. Already, the second quarter has produced growth of 3.9 per cent.

It is too early to say when or if growth rates will recover to those of 2000 - when it was 10.3 per cent - but, nevertheless, most Singaporeans agree that "happy days are here again". The recession did not really affect the maritime sector but it certainly dampened the mood in the Island Republic overall. In fact, many sectors of the maritime industry forged ahead throughout. What it did do, though, for the Lion City's major maritime events for 2003 was reduce competition. One event is currently scheduled - Asian Shipping/Work Boat World Asia, which will be held at Suntec Singapore from 18th till 20th February 2003. This combined conference and exhibition will cover the whole maritime industry including all kinds of commercial and government ships and boats as well as port operations. It aims primarily to attract owners and operators of commercial and government vessels as well as port managers.
