Singapore and Dubai seek closer maritime ties

Singapore and Dubai seek closer maritime ties

Singapore: Singapore and Dubai are targeting closer maritime ties with a new agreement. The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to foster their maritime relations. Under the MOU, both MPA and DMCA will explore opportunities for collaboration in the area of planning and regulation of marinas and waterways. Other possible areas of co-operation include promoting maritime environment protection as well as conducting maritime training and research. Singapore is keen to strengthen its ties with the Middle East, a strategic region for Singapore. MPA has worked with the United Arab Emirates in enhancing the safety of navigation and protection of marine environment in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore through the co-operative mechanism for the straits.
