10:30 Examining the upgrading and optimization of commercial port facilities in Hong Kong and its potential commercial impact on Shanghai and Singapore’s port and maritime services market.

Hong Kong Port and the wider maritime services cluster is a defining feature of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s economy. With improved port capacity and quality available at Shenzhen and other Pearl River Delta ports outlined previously, as well as the increasing competitiveness of supporting services such as ship management, ship finance and maritime arbitration in Shanghai and Singapore, Hong Kong will need to improve and evolve its port and maritime services in order to increase market share in future years.
The Transport and Housing Bureau (HKSAR Government) has released “The Strategic Development Plan for Hong Kong Port 2030” and commissioned a “Consultancy Study on Enhancing Hong Kong’s Position as an International Maritime Centre”. The commissioning of these studies is a statement of intent by the HKSAR government to continually enhance the competitiveness of the maritime cluster in Hong Kong. What will this mean for mainland Chinese ports and Singapore?
