Sailing through the Decades - PCL 50th Anniversary Dinner


We had an absolute blast yesterday evening as Pacific Carriers Limited marked a monumental milestone—the celebration of PCL's 50th anniversary!

The evening was filled with laughter and heartfelt interactions. We had the great privilege of having the Espinosa family, a dear business partner to us for 35 years, as well as Mr & Mrs Teo Joo Kim, Mr & Mrs Kuok Khoon Kuan, Mr Wu Long Peng and other previous PCL leaders that laid the strong foundation for PCL.

The evening commenced with Mr. Hor Weng Yew, Managing Director and CEO of PCL and Mr. Kuok Khoon Ean, Chairman of Kuok (Singapore) Limited, expressing gratitude and appreciation to the people who have been a part of PCL’s success.

Looking back, we are deeply thankful to the people and communities that have contributed to PCL’s growth, and we carry an obligation to reciprocate. In the spirit of giving back, we were delighted to make a contribution of S$1 Million to the MaritimeOne Bursary Fund as pioneer donor, which is a new bursary programme by the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) to support the education of students looking to join the maritime sector.

The dinner culminated with the unveiling of a time capsule that will carry well-wishes and aspirations for PCL’s future. The first few wishes to be placed in the capsule were donated by Mr Kuok Khoon Ean, Chairman of Kuok Singapore Limited Group, Mr Hor Weng Yew, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of PCL, Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State for Finance & Transport and Mr Niam Chiang Meng, Chairman of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). Guests at the dinner were also invited to give written or digital well-wishes.

The crowd had great fun networking, reminiscing, sharing stories, and seeing each other’s caricature drawings done at the event! Many were overjoyed by the opportunity to reconnect and catch up with long-time colleagues and old friends. The great excitement and energy at the dinner was representative of the partnerships, friendships and relationships that PCL has been blessed with.

Cheers to each and every one of you!

Stay tuned for more updates, thrilling adventures, and more PCL50 celebrations!
