The Port of Singapore
This chapter addresses the institutional map of the port of Singapore. The city-state of Singapore has three million inhabitants and lies at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Its location on the Strait of Malacca forms the gateway for east-west trade. The port of Singapore is the busiest in the world and its logistical function can be compared with that of the container hub and port city of Hong Kong1. As far as port administration is concerned, however, there are substantial differences between these two eastern giants. Whereas in Hong Kong nearly all port activities are in private hands, the port of Singapore is entirely managed and regulated by a public corporation.
