ABOUT PAR 2015 @ SINGAPORE
The inaugural Port Authorities Roundtable (PAR) 2015 held in conjunction with the 10th Singapore Maritime Week 2015 brought together port authorities from major Asian and European ports to network, share insights on pertinent issues and best practices, as well as to explore areas of collaboration. With the theme ‘Future Ready Ports - Challenges and Opportunities for Port Authorities’, topics discussed include port developments, efforts to improve port safety, efficiency, sustainability, and the adoption of future-ready technology and infrastructure in ports.
Singapore is the busiest container transhipment hub in the world, with more than 30.9 million TEUs of container throughput in 2016. It is connected to 600 ports from over 120 countries. The port's strategic location, accessibility and efficiency make it a preferred port of call attracting more than 130,000 vessels each year.
Equipped with innovative technology and intelligent capabilities, the Port of Singapore handled more than 590 million tonnes of cargo in 2016. Activity on Singapore ports is not restricted to cargo alone. The port's world class infrastructure attracts not just cruises from South East Asia but long haul cruises from countries like China and Australia as well.
Singapore is also a top bunkering port with more than 48 million tonnes of bunkers lifted in Singapore.
