ASA International Shipping Forum (ISF) 2023 held on ‘Blue and Safe Shipping’


26 April 2023 marked a very special day for the Asian Shipowners’ Association (ASA) as it held its very first ASA International Shipping Forum (ISF). ISF had successfully conveyed Asian Shipowners’ voices to the international shipping community and noting the result of ISF 2023, ASA will be considering more of such occasions in future to express Asian voices.

ASA would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all the guests, sponsors, overseas delegates and participants for the ASA ISF.

The ASA ISF was held at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) in Singapore, in conjunction with the Singapore Maritime Week 2023 and it received a full house attendance of 150 audiences including more than half of the participants from overseas. The theme of the ISF was “Blue and Safe Shipping”.

ASA was extremely honoured to have the Chief Executive of Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, Mr Teo Eng Dih, to be the Guest of Honour. During his opening remarks, he emphasised the importance of achieving common prosperity, mutual trust and cooperation in shipping.
