Singapore Maritime Lecture

The Maritime Perspectives Series kicks off with the signature Singapore Maritime Lecture.

COVID-19 started as a public health crisis but has since developed to become an unprecedented “crisis of a generation”. The pandemic has had a multi-dimensional impact on the global economy, geopolitics, social and cultural norms, all of which have bearing on the maritime industry. The World Trade Organization (WTO) has forecast global trade to fall by 13% to 32% in 2020.

Our keynote speaker Mr Ravi Menon, Managing Director from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), will share macro perspectives on trade and supply chain shifts due to the changes brought about by COVID-19.

The keynote speech will be followed by a panel discussion, with insights from Mr Menon, Mr Wan Chee Fong (Regional CEO of Middle East South Asia & Head of Business Development, PSA International) and Mr Steve Saxon (Partner, McKinsey & Company) on how the industry can rally together to tap on new prospects amidst disruption in global supply chains.
