Singapore's strong fundamentals enabled the country to register growth last year despite a challenging time for the maritime industry, said Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew.

He was speaking at the Singapore Shipping Association Lunar New Year cocktail reception at Raffles City Convention Centre on Feb 6.

Singapore also maintained its position as the world's top bunkering port, he added.
