Centre for Maritime Studies



Director’s Welcome

Singapore’s vibrant maritime scene sets the backdrop for CMS to be an internationally-recognised maritime think-tank.

Given our long history as a port-city and that the maritime industry constantly accounting for a significant portion of Singapore’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), she is recognised as the “Top Leading Maritime Capital of the World” for the fourth consecutive time in 2019 by Menon Economics. With the ongoing development of the 65 million TEUs annual capacity Tuas Port amidst the growing global seaborne container trade, the Centre for Maritime Studies (CMS) continues to value add to the maritime industry by conducting multi-disciplinary industry-relevant research to engage, improve, and create opportunities, and supports corporate and government policy- and decision-making as an independent think-tank. The Centre supports life-long learning and is a platform to link industry players with the academia for active, collaborative learning.

We welcome anyone interested to explore with us – for research, education, or training – in areas of interest and relevance to the maritime industry.
