Marine & Offshore - Employment and Employability Institute


The Marine & Offshore Engineering (M&OE) Industry Transformation Map (ITM) has unveiled in Feb 2018. It is a roadmap to drive transformation and capture long-term growth opportunities. It is the collective effort of the M&OE Industry Tripartite Committee comprising government agencies, trade associations and chambers (TACs), unions and industry leaders. Through the ITM, we expect the M&OE industry to contribute S$5.8 billion to our GDP and introduce around 1,500 new jobs by 2025.
