Hong Kong: the Leading Global Maritime Hub is looking ahead

Partner: InvestHK

With the spatial transformation of the global economic power from the West to the East, the rising power of China's economy and its maritime sectors like shipowning, ship management, ship finance, shipbuilding, commodity trading, etc. make Hong Kong an excellent place for international maritime executives. At the same time, Hong Kong is looking forward to a brilliant maritime future by capturing the opportunities in high-end maritime services. This theme will be discussed in a holistic approach, in a roundtable consisting of leading local and International Executives of the maritime industry chair-holders. They will exchange their thoughts, ideas, and visions and try to give the answer to the following questions.
