Associated British Ports (ABP) has welcomed a delegation from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to the Port of Southampton for talks on sustainable marine transport under the UK-Singapore Green Economy Framework (UKSGEF).

Both parties agreed that collaboration among key like-minded players in the UK and Singapore’s maritime and port ecosystems would be critical to supporting the marine industry’s decarbonisation, digitalisation, and development.

“Partnership between ports and with governments will be key in driving real change and today’s discussions between ourselves and MPA set a great foundation for sustainable maritime trade between our two ports.”
