Collaboration with The Business Times:
Maritime Presence in Transport Hub pages

In November 2008, the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) collaborated with The Business Times to heighten the awareness of the maritime sector through the Transport Hub pages.

As part of the partnership, The Business Times agreed to dedicate a section of the Wednesday Transport Hub pages to feature maritime news and articles. On the other hand, SMF and MPA would work to invite industry experts and leaders to contribute insightful commentaries about their fields of specialisations, news and trends.

The working committee which comprises editorial staff of The Business Times, Corporate Communications staff of SMF and MPA meet on a regular basis to determine the monthly themes and identify suitable interviewees and companies for this partnership. The inaugural Transport Hub supplement was circulated to the maritime community during the SSA Anniversary Gala Dinner in 2008.

SMF would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the maritime community for their strong support in contributing articles to the Transport Hub Pages. SMF would also like to thank The Business Times and Singapore Press Holdings for their strong support in this collaboration and the waiver of the copyright charges for these articles to be featured in the SMF website.

SMF welcomes our maritime partners to come forth and contribute articles for the Transport Hub pages. For queries about submission of articles in The Business Times, please email SMF at or call Tel: 6325 0225.

For details of the archived articles, please contact email SMF at or call Tel: 6325 0225.
