Maritime, port strategies outlined

The Government today promulgated the Action Plan on Maritime & Port Development Strategy, setting out 10 strategies and 32 action measures to support the sustainable development needs of Hong Kong’s maritime and port industry.

 

The strategies and measures fall under four directions: enhancing port competitiveness; strengthening high value-added maritime services; promoting the Hong Kong maritime brand and grooming talent; and supporting the Maritime & Port Board.

 

The bureau highlighted that one of the strategies is to develop Hong Kong as a green and smart port, so as to contribute towards the national carbon emission reduction target.

 

Meanwhile, tax concessions will be offered in a bid to attract international maritime enterprises.

 

Secretary for Transport & Logistics Lam Sai-hung said: “Our target is to strengthen the competitiveness of Hong Kong port and accelerate the growth of Hong Kong’s high value-added maritime services cluster with a view to entrenching Hong Kong’s status as an international maritime centre.”

 

He added that the action measures will be carried out in phases in collaboration with the Maritime & Port Board.
