An awareness of Maritime Security is as important today as ever. Particular issues of interest to small craft include:

The Singapore MPA is one of the leaders in the field of countering both piracy and terrorism and LIM will describe to delegates some of the measures being taken in Singaporean and neighbouring waters.

As well as having shared responsibility as a littoral state for one of the busiest commercial waterways in the world, Singapore has also developed its own tracking system for small craft.
