Danish Prime Minister visits Singapore

Dec 6 2017

To encourage and facilitate the exchange of views the Danish Ambassador to Singapore Dorte B. Vizard had invited a few Danish maritime companies present in Singapore to participate.

JLS was represented by Jakob Bode who explained to the Danish delegation that Singapore’s focus and support to the continued development of the industry across all sectors is key for the success of the Maritime Hub.

“We started our office in Singapore more than 10 years ago with 4 Danish staff and only a few local staff. Today we are still 4 Danish staff – but we have a total of 30 people working for JLS in Singapore. Such a strong development would not had been possible if it had not been for the continued support from government top-down through MPA, universities etc to grow the focus and support for Maritime Singapore” – a view that was echoed by other participants from AP Moller Maersk and taken to note of by both the Danish Prime Minister and the Minister of Employment.
