Taking up a two-year term as president on Tuesday Poulsson said: “As we embark on our voyage to take the SSA to a new level, I hope the Council and the members will continue their unwavering support for the Association’s vision and objectives. We will remain very committed to enhancing Singapore’s status as an International Maritime Centre and navigating the future together.

Outgoing president Phoon commented, “After 24 years in the Council, I leave with a touch of sadness, but I am happy that the Association has grown in stature into a force to be reckoned with!”
