‘This centre of scientific research and development will serve strategic interests thanks to the rich ecosystem offered by Singapore combined with our 400 years of technological development. We are happy to share our expertise and know-how, to gain from them with the region’s brightest minds in order to solve the naval industry’s most critical operational challenges. I look forward to see how the co-developed technologies generated by Singaporean scientists will directly benefit the city-state.’
