The Port of Hong Kong is an important pillar of Hong Kong's economy. The port and logistics industry contributes 3.2% to Hong Kong's GDP, and provides 180,000 jobs, accounting for 4.7% 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. Today, the company owns and operates container terminals at Hong Kong's Kwai Tsing Container Port; it also invests in the Pearl River Delta, where it operates and holds a majority of shares in DaChan Bay Terminals, and holds equity stakes in both Shekou Container Terminals and Chiwan Container Terminal.
In recent years, the container transportation industry in Hong Kong has been facing various challenges. During the visit, there will be updates on the industry and how Modern Terminals has responded to remain competitive. There will also be a brief introduction of the company and tour of its facilities.
