Maritime Week opens

November 21, 2022

Hong Kong Maritime Week 2022 was launched today to promote Hong Kong as a preferred base for maritime business and raise the community's awareness of the economic contributions of the city’s maritime and port industries.


Speaking in a video speech at the opening ceremony, Chief Executive John Lee said the National 14th Five-Year Plan champions Hong Kong's status as an international shipping centre, including the development of high-value-added maritime services for better integration into the country's overall progress.


“In my Policy Address last month, I stated that we will fully capitalise on our position as a high value-added maritime services centre and an important transshipment hub in the Asia-Pacific region.”


Meanwhile, Maritime & Port Board Chairman and Secretary for Transport & Logistics Lam Sai-hung said the Government will continue to take proactive measures to fuel the development of the maritime industry.


“At the same time, we will always take advantage of community efforts to tell our good stories and showcase Hong Kong's unique strengths. There is no better opportunity to do so than Hong Kong Maritime Week.”


Signature activities include the international Asian Logistics, Maritime & Aviation Conference, Maritime Week Orienteering Race, World Ocean Summit Asia-Pacific Insight Hour seminar and webinars to discuss topics such as high-value-added maritime services and maritime technology.


Some 40 more activities organised by local, Mainland and international marine institutes will also take place seven days in a row, with themes ranging from building up the maritime talent pool, Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development, education and careers, green shipping, maritime technology to ports and logistics.
