The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) is organising the 8th run of the International Safety@Sea Week from 30 August to 1 September 2021. This is an annual platform for MPA to engage members of the international maritime community and top practitioners to raise awareness and exchange views on maritime safety.
The Opening Session webinar for International Safety@Sea Week on 30 August 2021 will focus on this year’s theme on “The Human and Technology Crossroads for Maritime Safety”. Two live webcast plenary sessions on 31 August 2021 will discuss:

The theme for this year’s ICOPCE is “Embracing a New Era in Marine Environment Protection”. ICOPCE will take place on 1 September 2021 and the two live webcast plenary sessions will discuss:
A.Future Proofing Marine Environment Protection in a Changing Landscape
