Less than two years after Straits Tankers was established in Singapore, the Danish-Japanese pool managment company has been awarded the attractive MSC scheme, having its taxes lowered to ten percent in recognition of its business developments.
The maritime authorities in Singapore, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, has an ongoing selection process in which companies that are deemed to possess growth potential are picked and rewarded with custom schemes, such as lower taxes or other benefits. In return, the shipping companies and other maritime businesses commit to staying in Singapore and, to a certain extent, to hiring local workers.

Additionally, Straits is committing to taking on three or four local employees over the next five years.
