The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) keeps our ports competitive and attractive.
"The process of policymaking has instilled in me the discipline to analyse situations holistically and systematically. "
Various departments in MPA lead, plan and facilitate port operations and growth. Every team member works to advance and safeguard Singapore’s strategic maritime interests, a task that requires walking the ground and listening to feedback from seafarers, companies and industry partners.
SERVING WITH PRIDE
Lynn Tan, Manager, Operations Policy Unit, MPA “I like to think that we pave the way to make things feasible,” says Lynn. She and her colleagues craft new maritime policies and review existing ones to ensure that they remain relevant to port operations.
Lynn and her team spend a lot of time talking to port operators to improve efficiency of operations while upholding safety standards. The feather in her cap was the positive feedback received from industry partners after a successful outreach workshop this year.
“MPA has given me opportunities to be involved in many initiatives that are set to lead and transform port operations in Singapore. I relish the thought that I am part of this exciting change,” she says.
Lynn believes that succeeding in her role requires a good understanding of ground operations, pragmatism, a meticulous mind and teamwork. “The trick is to learn to piece the relevant information together.”
