With the maritime industry being one of the economic pillars of Singapore’s growth, it is only natural for employees working in this sector to hold their jobs in the highest regard. The large selection of vocations available at the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) guarantees a fulfilling career for professionals such as Shen Wanling and Farrah Mohammad Fadil.

Both Wanling and Farrah expressed great satisfaction with their respective lengths of stay in MPA. Wanling joined MPA in 2009 as a Policy Analyst in the Policy Division after graduating with First-class honours from Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
