Singapore to restructure Maritime Security Task Force amid piracy surge

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Navy International

05 February 2020

Key Points

- Singapore is restructuring a multi-agency construct known as the Maritime Security Task Force
- The restructuring could see the acquisition of additional naval assets or systems

Amid a surge of piracy-related incidents, the Singapore government has announced plans to restructure its Maritime Security Task Force (MSTF) to better deal with the menace.

This restructuring will include the bolstering of assets, Singapore's Minister for Defence, Ng Eng Hen, said in a written reply on 3 February. He was responding to a parliamentary question on the rise of piracy-related incidents in the Singapore Strait.

The MSTF is a multi-agency construct that was established in 2009 to tackle maritime security threats facing Singapore.
