Chief Executive of Singapore Maritime and Port Authority to Keynote SOS 2015

MPA Chief Executive Andrew Tan will Welcome Delegates to Singapore and Open the Sustainable Ocean Summit on 9 November. Mr Tan will provide the opening keynote address for the World Ocean Council’s Sustainable Ocean Summit, (SOS), 9-11 November 2015 in Singapore.


Tan stated, “Ensuring that responsible maritime businesses are contributing to maintaining a healthy global ocean requires a global, multi-sectoral effort. As an international multi-industry alliance, the World Ocean Council creates the opportunity for responsible maritime industry operators to collaborate with like-minded peers from other sectors in tackling the shared sustainable development challenges affecting the future of all ocean economic activity.”

The WOC distinguishes the SOS as a “working conference”, i.e. the event discussions are documented and then help shape WOC workplans, priorities and actions - as part of the ongoing efforts of WOC to support its Members and the broader ocean business community to advance “Corporate Ocean Responsibility”.
