Singapore, Norway Ink MOUs to Strengthen Maritime Sector
Singapore and Norway have just signed two MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) in a bid to further clean technology application in the maritime sector. The signing of the MoUs come on the back of the 7th Singapore Maritime Week, which has recently concluded.
Singapore company registration specialist, Rikvin, recognizes the MoUs as a testament to Singapore’s commitment to building a stronger maritime sector through R&D and cleantech application.
The first MoU, called MPA-RCN MoU, was signed between Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN). The MPA-RCN MoU aims to further research and development (R&D) as well as education and training efforts in the maritime sector for another three years.
This renewal represents the fifth MoU between both parties since 2000. It also marks a mutual agreement to continue a fruitful 11-year partnership that was built on successful projects.
The second MoU aims to promote sustainable maritime-related research and development in Singapore. Called the Maritime Environment and Clean Energy (MECE) Memorandum of Understanding, it was signed between MPA, Singapore Maritime Institute (SMI) and BW Ventures (BWV).
