The annual awards ceremony and reception was held at the Tanglin Club after a two-year enforced break due to the pandemic.
Speaking to attendees Capt Subhangshu Dutt, Chairman of ICS – Singapore branch, put the events of the last two years into a wider historical perspective. “So, the Institute is 120 years old now. And it has witnessed two world wars, a few pandemics, blockades, trade embargoes, sanctions, calm winds, moderate weather, severe storms, but always emerged unscathed.”
Guest-of-Honour for the occasion was Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), who stressed the importance of developing maritime talent and the key role that ICS plays in this.
