Hong Kong Maritime Industry Week 2016
20‐27 November 2016
To “Propel Hong Kong” as a renowned international maritime centre, the first-ever Hong Kong Maritime Industry Week (HKMIW 2016) was staged from 20 to 27 November 2016 successfully. This event comprised 29 activities and was organised by 34 local and overseas organisations. The objectives of the event were to make Hong Kong a preferred base for operating maritime business, and to foster interest and professionalism in various port and maritime services.
During HKMIW 2016, international and local industry luminaries and practitioners came together for a myriad of diversified and fun-filled activities ranging from industry briefings, seminars and conferences, corporate functions, maritime-themed sports to networking events. Different maritime themes were covered such as shipping and maritime business, port, maritime law, arbitration, marine insurance, maritime engineering, ship management, ship finance, as well as the Belt and Road Initiative. Some 4 600 maritime and port executives, industry players, students and members of the public took part in the HKMIW 2016 activities.
Organised by the Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board, the HKMIW 2016 did not only celebrate Hong Kong as an international maritime centre that provides superb maritime and port facilities and services, but also galvanize practitioners in the maritime cluster to work towards shared goals with pride and energy.
