Proposal to Mandate Ocean-going Vessels and River Trade Vessels to use Compliant Fuel within Hong Kong Waters
The Chamber supports the HKSAR Government’s proposal to mandate ocean-going vessels and river trade vessels to use compliant fuel with sulphur content not exceeding 0.5% by weight within Hong Kong waters from 1 January 2019 onward, and recommends adding a provision in the legislation to adopt the 0.1% requirement in the event that the Mainland Government decides to adopt a more stringent standard, so as to bring us in alignment with the emission requirement of the PRD’s Emission Control Area.

Electronic Road Pricing Pilot Scheme in Central and Its Adjacent Areas
