2018 Lloyd’s List Hong Kong Business Briefing
Hong Kong: Maritime Leadership for the Future
19th November 2018
Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel
Hong Kong is a world-class port and maritime hub, with a bright future secured on proven expertise and easy access to China’s trade and capital flows. It is the seventh largest trading economy in the world, enabled by the strong presence of ship and cargo owners, and traders. Its community includes leading ship managers, brokers, financiers, marine insurers, and maritime lawyers. Hong Kong’s ship register is the fourth largest in the world and continues to compete at the highest level to attract maritime accolades.
Hong Kong is looking to take its position of maritime leadership to the next level.
Reasons to attend the Lloyd’s List Hong Kong Business briefing
Our Hong Kong Business Briefing will seek to answer these questions with two focused panels:
The first panel will get to grips with China’s economic strategy. Nowhere is better placed than Hong Kong to listen to the signals coming from Beijing. The ambitious strategies set out by President Xi’s administration will influence Greater China, the Asia Pacific region, and beyond.
Our second panel goes into Hong Kong’s maritime strategy in greater detail. Speakers will outline the future vision for Hong Kong’s port, including infrastructure needs 20 years ahead, changes to fuels, and the greening of cargo handling and other port operations. Then we assess the Hong Kong maritime cluster: which services will thrive, and which will come under greater pressure as regional and international rivals challenge for market share.
This is a free to attend event for Lloyd's list subscribers and executives from shipowners, managers & operators
