For the fifth time the maritime industry has recognised the excellence of Singapore Polytechnic's Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA) by awarding the institution the Lloyd's List Maritime Asia 'Youth Development' Award.
The glamorous event which was held on 2 Nov 06 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was witnessed the who's who of the shipping and maritime industry.
An elated Mr Roland Tan, Director of SMA said, "It's an honour for SMA to once again receive this prestigious Award for the fifth consecutive time. It's a reflection of the extensive support we have from the government and the maritime industry. I must also attribute our standing to the strong support of our SP top management and the dedication of our staff, local and international students, and our graduates who make it good in the industry."

SMA was chosen via a two round voting process. The first involved a popular vote of Lloyd's List Maritime Asia readers which was followed by the selection of the eventual finalist by an independent panel of experienced industry experts.
Our congratulations to the SMA, staff and students on making it great.
