Chapter Summary

Maritime security is one critical issue that ranks high in Singapore's national security priorities, as with many countries around the world. Contemporary challenges to maritime security are trans-boundary in nature and multi-faceted in that they cut across traditional sectoral boundaries between enforcement agencies, port authorities and shipping associations. No single organisation or country has the wherewithal to tackle the plethora of maritime threats alone. Instead, it is needed to adopt a new paradigm of national security. Navies play a crucial role in this. In fact, when it comes to interagency co-operation and international collaboration, navies in the world have a head-start. Navies can well appreciate one another's concerns and readily share best practices. Likewise, the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) plays a vital role in collaborating with others in fleshing out these new paradigms.
