The Port of Hong Kong is an important pillar of Hong Kong’s economy. The maritime and port industry contributes 1.2 % to Hong Kong’s GDP, and provides 86,000 jobs accounting for 2.3% of total employment in Hong Kong.
Modern Terminals Ltd. has been a pioneer in the growth of the container terminal industry in Hong Kong and Mainland China ever since it opened Hong Kong’s first purpose-built container handling facility in 1972.
