At the Singapore Budget Debate 2021 on 5 March, Senior Minister of State for Transport Chee Hong Tat shared plans that $20 billion worth of investments from industry players will be pumped into Singapore’s maritime sector by 2024.
The number of maritime tech start-ups will also increase from 30 to 100 by 2025, while a new programme will be launched to develop leaders with knowledge of key maritime issues and strong business networks.
