Associated British Ports (ABP) hosted a delegation from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) at the Port of Southampton. The delegation was led by MPA Chief Executive Mr Teo Eng Dih.

The port authorities discussed potential areas of collaboration in sustainable maritime transport, aligning with the UK-Singapore Green Economy Framework.

Both sides agreed that cooperation between key players in the UK and Singapore's maritime and port industries is crucial for promoting greener, more digital shipping practices. This productive meeting opens the door for further discussions between Singapore and Southampton on eco-friendly and digital advancements in shipping.

Mr Alastair Welch, ABP’s Regional Director for Southampton said “It was great to welcome Chief Executive Teo Eng Dih and his colleagues to the Port of Southampton, the UK’s number 1 port for deep sea trade. We’re committed to driving progress in sustainability, as evidenced by our leading position as the UK’s first significant shore-power provider. Partnership between ports and with governments will be key in driving real change and today’s discussions between ourselves and MPA set a great foundation for sustainable maritime trade between our two ports.”

Mr Teo Eng Dih, Chief Executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, said: “MPA thanks ABP for its hospitality. There is a strong base of collaboration between the UK and Singapore in maritime. Today’s discussion between the Port of Southampton, UK stakeholders and MPA was a good opportunity for us to address common challenges, learn from each other and exchange views on maritime decarbonisation and digitalisation. I look forward to a strong partnership in developing cost-effective solutions for the international shipping community.”
