Week in Review, May 20


Hadhi Abdul

Optimism and realism in this day and age for a younger generation to carry forward


Abdul Hadhi
, Asia Editor in Chief


After a full week of events at Singapore Maritime Week comes to an end, spirits are higher than at the same event last year

AS Singapore Maritime Week 2017 drew to a close, there was a spring in the step of shipping executives walking around Marina Bay Sands that was not
apparent last year.

But as Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said in his opening address, shipping people are optimistic but they are realistic too. Worries of vessel oversupply
and poor economic growth were absent at the start of the week, but crept in as events continued and the realists spoke up.
