About Hong Kong Maritime Week 2017:
To drive the development of Hong Kong's maritime and port industries, the Government established the Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board (HKMPB) on 1 April 2016. This year, HKMPB will organize the second edition from 19-26 November to promote Hong Kong as a preferred base for operating maritime business and join hands with the Hong Kong Shipowners Association and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum to put together eight days of activities for the industry and the community.
