Overview

This year’s Capital Link Hong Kong Maritime Forum aims to highlight the enduring leadership of Hong Kong as a global maritime center. The topics are Hong centric and the target audience is the international maritime community.


Most of HK’s competitive advantages remain in place and have actually improved over time, overcoming geopolitical and industry challenges and competition from other maritime hubs. But today, HK can also play a new role as a super connector between China and the World, and facilitate and enhance access to Chinese resources, while also offering an improved infrastructure and possibilities through the Greater Bay Area.


A top level panel of experts – stakeholders from different aspects of the industry will provide authoritative and comprehensive viewpoints on the above. The discussion will cover the new possibilities as well as the traditional advantages as these have developed today.


Topics of discussion include:
- Hong Kong as super-connector between China and the world
- How to Tap into Chinese Resources through Hong Kong
- Greater Bay Area and its Implications on Hong Kong's attractiveness
