The SOS 2015 location and theme recognize the following achievements and progress:

  • The 50th anniversary of Singapore and its growth into a major maritime nation.
  • The growth of the ocean economy and the diverse ocean business community over the past 50 years.
  • The contribution of the ocean economy, and the goods and services that the ocean business community provides, to the food, energy, transport, communications and other needs of society.
  • The role of the ocean business community over the next 50 years and beyond.
  • The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) being promulgated by the UN in 2015 to guide the international community for the next 15 years.
