Lloyd’s List seminar to focus on Hong Kong’s future

The territory’s maritime challenges will be examined at a Lloyd’s List business briefing during HK Maritime Week

Nowhere is better placed than Hong Kong to listen to the signals coming from Beijing, with President Xi Jinping’s ambitious strategies set to influence Greater China, the Asia Pacific region and beyond

THIS week’s opening of the world’s longest sea bridge reinforces Hong Kong’s adaptability in balancing its maritime edge and Beijing’s directives.

The territory intends on amplifying its message to the global shipping market at next month’s Hong Kong Maritime Week (18-24 November) during which Lloyd’s List will host a business briefing examining options for the area.

The briefing, on November 19, will address two fundamental questions: What does Hong Kong’s future look like in the context of China’s overall direction and; how will the territory’s maritime cluster adapt to required changes?

Nowhere is better placed than Hong Kong to listen to the signals coming from Beijing. The ambitious strategies set out by President Xi Jingping’s administration will influence Greater China, the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

Sponsored by the Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board, the briefing will feature prominent maritime and banking executives who will translate China’s economic strategy into what it will mean for Hong Kong’s planners and business leaders.

Speakers will also explain how Chinese growth will provide opportunities for Hong Kong and for the whole Greater Bay area, with opportunities for audience members to ask questions.

Among the speakers will be Peter J Levesque and Peter Glover.

Mr Levesque, a former vice president at DHL, is group managing director of Modern Terminals in Hong Kong and author of The Shipping Point, The Rise of China and the Future of Retail Supply Chain Management in 2011.

Mr Glover, a master mariner, is a disputes lawyer and partner with Norton Rose Fulbright, based in Hong Kong, and focuses on shipping, international trade, regulatory and marine insurance.

The briefing, hosted by Lloyd’s List chief correspondent Richard Clayton, will be held in the Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel.
