Hong Kong Maritime Week 2022 report

Posted on: 15 December 2022

As a regular supporter of the Hong Kong Maritime Week, Maritime London is pleased to inform that the sixth edition of the Week was successfully concluded on 26 November 2022. The event organisers report that, with local industry having rendered “unstinting support”, some 49 separate activities in total took place, ranging from conferences, seminars and forums, to visits, competition and family fun day, staged by 69 local and overseas organisations.

The Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region) Chief Executive, Mr John Lee, said in a pre-recorded speech at the opening ceremony that the National 14th Five-Year Plan championed Hong Kong’s status as an international shipping centre, which included the development of high value-added maritime services for better integration into China’s overall progress and, more specifically, Hong Kong’s place in the development of a world-class port cluster.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Chairman of the Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board (HKMPB) and Secretary for Transport and Logistics Mr Lam Sai-hung emphasised the utmost importance of keeping the maritime cluster vibrant.

He said that the HK SAR Government would continue to take proactive measures to fuel the development of the maritime industry, such as implementing tax concessions for shipping enterprises, the smart port initiative, and new schemes for maritime manpower development.
