Hong Kong is strategically located on the Far East trade routes, and the efficiency of port services in the city has long been a key factor contributing to our economic success. The Chamber will visit Hongkong International Terminals (HIT) to learn about its operation and contribution to our economy.
HIT is a member of Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (HPH Trust), which is the world's first container port business trust. Situated in one of the busiest container ports in the world, HIT operates 12 berths at Terminals 4, 6, 7 and 9 North in Kwai Tsing, playing an important role in the port industry both in Hong Kong and within Hutchison Ports' global network of ports.
The recent formation of the Hong Kong Seaport Alliance between HIT and 3 other container terminal operators in the city has led to a more efficient use of port resources, while enhancing the overall competitiveness of the Port of Hong Kong across the region.
