Hong Kong’s government must make a long-term positive policy commitment to shipping and give clear access to government officials if the territories’ maritime sector is to prosper in the face of tough regional competition. That was the message delivered by speakers at TradeWinds’ Shipowners’ Forum held in 2016 for the second time at Hong Kong’s Maritime Museum, which attracted around 180 local and international guests. Peter Cremers, Anglo-Eastern Univan executive chairman, said Hong Kong must learn from Singapore’s long-term commitment to the sector. Earlier, Joseph Lai JP, Hong Kong’s Permanent Secretary at Transport & Housing, told attendees in his keynote address that the administration intended to create a maritime business-friendly environment. The dark shadow of the tonnage oversupply that hangs over many sectors dominated the forum’s three sessions, with brokers, financiers and owners in general agreement that more scrapping is needed before markets can recover.
