SINGAPORE: The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) is hosting the inaugural Regional Forum on Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) from October 1 to 4.
A first in Asia, the forum brings together maritime officers from around the world to interact and discuss issues related to VTS, safety of navigation and maritime safety.
Some 20 overseas and local speakers will be speaking on a range of topics in the area.
The forum is jointly organised by MPA, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP), and the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities World-Wide Academy (IALA WWA) under the Singapore-IMO Third Country Training Programme.
The IMO is the United Nations agency responsible for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution by ships.
The IALA is a non-profit international technical association and develops best practice standards in aids to navigation, including VTS.
IALA WWA is IALA's training and capacity building arm, and implements the training courses for VTS personnel.
