Singapore in the spotlight at Nor-Shipping

Singapore in the spotlight at Nor-Shipping

Oslo: His Royal Highness King Harald of Norway (pictured) was guest of honour at the opening of the Singapore pavilion at Nor-Shipping this week, hosted by Singapore's Minister of State for Finance and Transport, Mrs Lim Hwee Hua.

The Minister led a strong delegation to the show comprising representatives from the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF), the Ministry of Transport, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI) and 13 Singapore maritime companies.

Theme of the pavilion, co-organised by SMF and ASMI, was "Bringing You the World", which was designed to reflect the depth and breadth of maritime services available in Singapore.

"Nor-Shipping is an excellent marketing avenue for Singapore to showcase its range of maritime expertise and services and to position itself as an ideal gateway to Asia to the rest of the world," said SMF executive director David Chin.  "More importantly, we hope to be able to forge closer partnerships with other international maritime players that will reap mutual benefits."  

The SMF, together with Singapore's Honorary Consul-General in Norway, Svein Aaser, also hosted a 'Singapore Nite' reception yesterday at the Radisson SAS Plaza in Oslo for about 300 senior level guests from Europe and Asia. As part of the Uniquely Singapore experience, five chefs from Kriston Food and Beverage were specially flown in from Singapore to prepare a wide spread of Singapore delicacies for the reception. The event drew important Norwegian guests such as John Fredriksen and Wilhelm Wilhelmsen.  [14/06/07]
