Welcome to the Port of Hong Kong Handbook and Directory for

1998 and 1999.

The continuing expansion of the Port of Hong Kong, already the

world's largest container port, secures its place in the next millennium

as one of the world's truly great ports.

Of course, shipping and maritime activities are at the heart of Hong

Kong's success, which is why the government's Marine Department is

at the forefront of the efficient running of the port - unlike most ports

throughout the world, Hong Kong does not have a port authority,

therefore keeping bureaucratic involvement to a minimum.

So what does the future hold for the Port of Hong Kong The

expansion of port facilities is essential and plans include the

construction of Container Terminal 9 which began in 1998, along

with Lantau port development projects. Expansion is necessary to

keep up with the ever-growing demand on the port so, with this in

mind, the new River Trades Terminal and Mid-Stream Terminal, both

privately owned, are expected to be completed by the end of 1998.

These future expansion projects ensure that the Port of Hong Kong

keeps one step ahead of the rest of the world's container ports which

continually strive to emulate its success. After all, how many other

ports can boast more than 230,000 dockings in one year alone

The jewel in the crown of Hong Kong Port is Kwai Chung container

port which, over recent years, has seen a magnificent growth rate

which is set to continue well into the next millenium.

As Hong Kong continues to grow so, too, does the port which is set

to reach 24 million TEUs by the year 2006.

It is with all this in mind that the Port of Hong Kong is set to

become the most successful port of the 21 st century, continuing its

important role in the ever-growing metropolis of Hong Kong.


Planned expansion heralds new dawn for

Asia's premier marine gateway

Close proximity to mainland China,

one of the world's largest markets,

has encouraged the development of

Hong Kong into a leading

international port, and continued

prosperity looks assured as major

expansion plans get underway.

SHIPPING and maritime activities

beat at the heart of Hong Kong,

accounting for more than 20 percent

of the Special Administrative Region's

gross domestic product (GDP).

The not-so-secret reason for the

success of the Port of Hong Kong is

its natural deepwater harbour, which,

when combined with its geographic

proximity to the People's Republic of

China, has allowed Hong Kong to

blossom into a major international

trade centre and gateway to Asia.

Hong Kong has held the

momentous title of 'world's

largest container port' for the last

six years, with 14.5 million TEUs

being handled at the port in the

calendar year 1997.

This single achievement, however,

should not overshadow the fact that

it is also one of the world's leading

maritime centres.

Practically any service that the

international maritime community

could possibly require can be

found in the Hong Kong Special

Administrative Region (HKSAR),

including: ship management, ship

repair, finance, legal services,

and much more.

The reunification of Hong Kong

with China from 1 July 1997 will see

Hong Kong continuing to grow as the

major port servicing the needs of

Southern China's burgeoning

Guangdong Province — cargoes to

and from which accounted for 69

percent of Hong Kong's total

container traffic in 1996.

Backing up Hong Kong's bright

future, the latest official outlook for

the port indicates that container traffic

will grow at an average rate of six

percent a year over the next decade,

to reach 24 million TEUs in 2006.

Beyond this period, the estimates

are for container volumes to grow at

burgeoning trade links over the years.

A world-class port - Hong Kong is undergoing major expansion of its

facilities to prepare for the next millennium.

an average of 3.1 percent a

year between 2007 and 2016,

to 33 million TEUs.

Hong Kong continues to be a

beacon of efficiency, setting

standards which the rest of

the world's container ports

strive to emulate.

The key to such efficiency is the

laissez-faire approach adopted for

the port's operation.

In line with this philosophy, all of

the for-profit facilities in the port,

such as the impressive Kwai Chung

container terminals, are privately

owned and operated.

To keep bureaucratic involvement

in the operation of the port to a

minimum, Hong Kong, unlike

most ports in the world, does not

have a port authority.

The enormous task of ensuring the

efficient and safe running of the Port

of Hong Kong is the responsibility of

the Government's Marine

Department, which provides a

broad range of services, including:

vessel traffic regulation, maritime

search and rescue, Port State

Control inspection, and the

provision of facilities such as

mooring buoys and public

cargo working areas.

Expansion of the port facilities to

keep pace with ever-growing

demand continues in Hong Kong,

with construction of the privatelyowned

River Trade Terminal at Tuen

Mun and the new Mid-Stream

Terminal at Stonecutters Island, both

of which are expected to be

operating by the end of 1998.

Construction of the new

Container Terminal 9, to be

located on reclaimed land at a site

opposite the eight existing Kwai

Chung terminals, began in 1998.

Once construction is completed,

CT9 will provide an additional 2.6

million TEUs of handling capacity

at the port each year.

In the longer term, plans are

also in place for both Container

Terminal 10 and 11 projects at a

new greenfields site to be

constructed on reclaimed land on

Lantau Island.

Complementing Hong Kong's

world class port infrastructure is

the new Hong Kong International

Airport at Lantau Island's Chek Lap

Kok. The HK$155 billion state-of-theart

facility, opening for business on 6

July 1998, is one of the world's finest

airports, incorporating the world's

largest airfreight facility,

SuperTerminal 1.

It is with all of the above in place

that the Hong Kong Special

Administrative Region of the People's

Republic of China prepares to enter

the new millennium absolutely

confident in retaining

its status as of one of the world's truly

great ports.

/ Kwai Chung Cot

j improved with go\

Development continues in style as port

prepares for the new millennium

As levels of growth at Hong Kong

Port continue to rise, the need for

expansion becomes increasingly

important, leading to the

construction of essential new

facilities which will help to

contribute to continued success.

HONG Kong's private-sector led

approach to port development is a

fundamental factor contributing to

the growth of the SAR as an

international centre for trade.

Such a laissez-faire development

model enables private operators to

provide the most efficient and

modern facilities while, at the same

time, keeping bureaucracy and redtape

to a minimum.

All of the Kwai Chung

container facilities are privately

owned and developed, with the

government contributing supporting

infrastructure such as roads and the

dredging of channels.

The Hong Kong SAR Government

also plays an important; role in the

co-ordination of the port

development process. Central to the

Government's work is the forecasting

of Hong Kong's future growth in

terms of container traffic, and from

which sectors this growth is

expected to come.

The latest 'Hong Kong Port Cargo

Forecasts', released in February 1998,

estimate the port's container traffic to

grow at an average rate of 5.8 percent

a year over the next decade to reach

24 million TEUs in 2006.

Beyond this period, the estimates

are for container traffic to grow at an

average of 3.1 percent a year

Container traffic at Hong Kong Port is expected to grow by six percent

between 2007 and 2016, to 33

million TEUs.

Port Development Plans

Container Terminal 9

AS Hong Kong prepares itself

for the coming millennium,

construction of a ninth container

terminal, commonly referred to as

CT9, commenced in the first half of

1998 at a site opposite the eight

existing terminals at Kwai Chung.

Once completed, the new Tsing Yi

Island facility will occupy an area of

70 hectares of reclaimed land and

will consist of four deep sea berths

and two feeder berths.

The new terminal, to be operated

by existing Kwai Chung operators

Hutchison International Terminals

(HIT) and Modern Terminals Ltd

(MTL), will provide an additional

2.6 million TEUs handling capacity.

CT9 is due to begin operation

towards the end of 2001.

Lantau Port

THE completion of CT9 will realise

the full development of the Kwai

Chung Port region, forcing the need

to develop any future container

terminals elsewhere in Hong Kong.

Lantau Island has been

designated as the site for any future

expansion. Current plans allow for

four or more terminals on a series

of artificial islands stretching southeast

from north Lantau, in what will

be one of the world's biggest civil

engineering projects.

The timing for building of the new

terminals on Lantau is yet to be

determined, although detailed

planning for Container Terminals 10

and 11 has already been completed,

ensuring minimum delay in their

construction as port demand


Port and Maritime Board

The central functions of the new Hong Kong Port

and Maritime Board, established on 1 June 1998

will be to promote Hong Kong as an international

shipping centre, support economic development

and create new job opportunities.

Previously known as the Port Development

Board, the re-organised and re-structured Port and

Maritime Board will bring together the

Government and the maritime sector,

strengthening the links between both these

organisations. The Chairman will be Peter

Thompson, an experienced maritime lawyer, and

among the 21 members are people well known in

the Hong Kong port and shipping community. The

Board will provide an important venue for the

shipping industry to channel their views to the


To discharge its functions effectively, two

committees will be set up under the Port and

development and chaired by Gerry Forsgate; and

the Shipping Committee chaired by Frank Tsao. The

Shipping Committee will focus on improving the

competitiveness of Hong Kong's shipping industry

by lowering costs, and promoting Hong Kong as an

international shipping centre.

The establishment of the Port and Maritime

Board underlines the Government's commitment to

support the Hong Kong shipping industry. The

Board seeks to strengthen Hong Kong's status as a

global shipping centre using promotional

campaigns in mainland China and overseas to

attract more shipping companies, and encourage

international maritime organisations to set up Asian

Headquarters in Hong Kong. Both these initiatives,

and many more will help to contribute to the

future success of Hong Kong's shipping industry.

future development

Due to the lack of existing space the Airport Railway's Hong Kong

Station was built on reclaimed land, highlighting its importance to the

area's development plans.

River Trade Terminal

RIVER trade vessels using the

numerous waterways in the Pearl

River Delta to transport cargoes to

and from Guangdong provide an

economic and environmentallyfriendly

alternative to the

increasingly congested road system.

To service the needs of this

burgeoning trade, which accounted

for 1.9 million TEUs in 1997,

Hong Kong is building the first

dedicated River Trade Terminal

(RTT) atTuen Mun.

Constructed by the private sector,

the first phase of the RTT is

scheduled to come into operation in

1998, with the facility to be used to

consolidate cargoes brought down

by small river trade vessels before

feeding them, in larger dedicated

vessels, to the container terminals

and mid-stream operators.

There are also plans for another

RTT to be built just to the north of

the proposed Lantau Port.

Mid-Stream Sites

AROUND 3.1 million TEUs, or

more than one fifth of Hong

Kong's annual throughput in

1997, was handled at mid-stream

operations, which involves the

loading and unloading of cargoes

from ships moored at buoys or

anchorages in the harbour.

Providing a lower cost service

than the shore-based terminals, the

mid-stream operators transport cargo

from ship to shore by lighters

equipped with their own derricks.

In order to provide improved

facilities to the mid-stream

operators, the government will

let out two permanent mid-stream

sites on Stonecutters Island in

1998, comprising 6.7 hectares

with some 460 metres of quay

length. It is also looking at the

feasibility of providing additional

mid-stream sites in north Lantau

and Junk Bay.

reclamation proposals and projects which do/will

allow for a continued increase in the land available

for the use of the SAR public and tourists.

The more notable of these projects include the

Central and Wan Chai, West Kowloon, Kowloon

Point and Green Island reclamations. The Central

and Wan Chai Reclamation extends along the

waterfront from Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay. The

first phase of the Central Reclamation, involving

some 20 hectares at the Central waterfront, has

been completed.

The new land allows for expansion of the Central

Business District and construction of the Airpon

Railway's Hong Kong Station which became

operational in mid-1998. Reclamation work at West

Kowloon has allowed for the formation of some 328

hectares of land, including reclamation at

Stonecutters Island.

The broad objectives of the project are to provide

land for major transport links to the new airport at

Chek Lap Kok, including the Western Harbour

Crossing, West Kowloon Expressway and the

Airport Railway.

The reclamation also provides space to ease

pressure on adjacent congested residential and

industrial areas.

Resurgence of vibrant Hong Kong as a

booming commercial centre

The uncertainty associated with the

reunification of Hong Kong with

China has passed, and now the region

is entering a new era of success as

industry thrives and development of

infrastruture becomes even

more important.

Economic Impact

THE Port of Hong Kong, the world's

busiest container gateway, is a vital

economic generator for the newly

established Special Administration

Region (SAR) of the People's

Republic of China.

More than 465,000 tonnes of cargo

and 40,000 TEUs are handled across

its quays daily as the port

accommodates a vast array of

consignments ranging from food and

consumer goods shops to hi-tech

machinery and industrial equipment,

destined either for Hong Kong's

shops/markets or for re-export into

international market places.

Indeed, the port is instrumental in

ensuring that Hong Kong, now firmly

established as an independent entity

under the Chinese flag, remains an

economic phenomenon which

continues to set the standards that the

rest of Asia can only follow.

The remarkable entrepreneurial

spirit of its population, developed

over 150 years of free trade, has led

to Hong Kong becoming the world's

seventh largest trading entity despite

covering an area of just 1,000 sq km.

An incredible five million people in

mainland China owe their jobs to

Hong Kong companies setting up

65,000 production facilities primarily

in neighbouring Guangdong

province, manufacturing everything

from toys, garments and furniture to

electronic goods.

Some 90 percent of Hong Kong's

manufactured goods — principally

made up of clothing and fashion

accessories, textiles, children's

games, watches, clocks,

telecommunication equipment and

footwear — are exported to markets

across the world.

In total, Hong Kong's merchandise

trade with the rest of the world

increased by five percent in 1997 to

more than HK $3,000 billion.

Domestic exports amounted to HK

$192,692 million and re-exports to

HK $1,138,849 million, while Hong

Kong imported HK $1,477,338

million worth of goods.

Main imports into Hong Kong in

terms of value include electrical

machinery, telecommunications,

audio and video equipment,

textiles, clothing, food, office

equipment and computers.

Mainland China continues to be

Hong Kong's leading trade partner,

accounting for 36 percent of total

revenues earned from the import

and export of cargo. Other major

trading partners include the US (14

percent), Japan (10 percent) and

Taiwan (5 percent).

More than half of all exports

out of Hong Kong and 40 percent

of imports are made by vessels

calling at the Port of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong's status as one of

Asia's leading commercial centres

was enhanced by a 1997 stock

market turnover of HK $3,789

billion, although economic

decline in Asia led to the Hang

Seng Index ending the year at

10,722 points — a drop of 6,000

on its August peak.

Hong Kong is also the world's

ninth largest exporter of

commercial services as it

provides key business, financial,

technical, communications,

market research, advertising, design

and exhibition services to clients

across the globe.

A major financial centre, 81 of the

world's top 100 banks in terms of

total assets have established

branches or offices in Hong Kong.

In addition, Hong Kong — which

boasts Asia's highest per capita

income — is Asia's largest gold

bullion market and second largest

venture capital centre.

The strength and diversity of its

economy certainly leaves Dr Victor

Fung, Chairman of the Hong Kong

Trade Development Council

(HKTDC), in no doubt that Hong

Kong will continue to flourish while

other Asian countries suffer

economic recession.

"The Asian economic crisis has

given Hong Kong a special

opportunity to assert and explain the

unique role it plays in the Asia-

Pacific region," said Dr Fung. 'The

basis on which Hong Kong

competes has never been stronger

despite competitive devaluations

around the region.

"Hong Kong is a premium product

offering unique strengths to the

region in services, manufacturing

and our relationship with China,

strengths that, quite frankly, help

other countries compete."

Perhaps the best testimony of all

to dynamic Hong Kong is the fact

that 40 percent of all its companies

now boast overseas operations in

two or more countries.

more confident to invest in Hong

Kong than ever before as years of

uncertainty about its economic,

commercial and political future after

1997 are finally at an end.

Assistant Chief Economist, Pansy

Yau, said: 'The smooth transition of

Hong Kong from British control to

China has finally ended years of

uncertainty about the future and

restored confidence in Hong Kong

to such an extent that more US and

British companies are ready to

invest in Hong Kong today than

before the handover.

"Hong Kong still has the same free

economy, low tax system, free port

and currency that it always has and

will continue to have for at least

another 50 years. Similarly, the

brain drain of professionals leaving

Hong Kong has reversed and, in

fact, there are more professionals

here now than ever before. Hong

Kong has long been mainland

China's window to the world and

will continue to be so for the

foreseeable future/'

Mainland China's economic

importance to Hong Kong and vice

versa cannot be underestimated.

China is by far and away Hong

Kong's leading trading partner,

accounting for 36 percent of all

imports and exports, worth a

staggering HK $1,049,815

million a year.

Hong Kong is also China's largest

source of foreign investment, with

Hong Kong manufacturing

companies with mainland

production plants responsible for

more than five million jobs in

neighbouring Guangdong

Province alone.

China is one of the leading

investors in Hong Kong, with nearly

1,800 mainland-backed enterprises

worth US $42.5 billion registered in

Hong Kong. The former British

colony is also China's most

important entrepot with nearly 50

percent of all exports passing

through Hong Kong.

Indeed, such is the closeness of

links between Hong Kong and its

new master that more than 800

vessels, 100 flights, 35 trains and

26,000 vehicles travel across the

border between Hong Kong and the

mainland each day.

Established in 1966 as a statutory

body for promoting and developing

overseas trade with the world,

HKTDC's objectives include

developing and diversifying markets

for Hong Kong companies,

strengthening its position as Asia's

leading venue for exhibitions and

trade fairs and enhancing the

worldwide image of Hong Kong, its

products and services.

HKTDC, which acts as a global

business co-ordinator for 28 key

Hong Kong business associations,

holds more than 350 promotional

events worldwide each year

involving more than 12,000

participants from Hong Kong.

In addition, it promotes Hong

Kong products through 20 trade

magazines with a global circulation

of 2.3 million copies, its own

computerised trade enquiry service

and delegations overseas. Its 20

major international trade fairs and

exhibitions in Hong Kong each year

attract 7,000 exhibitors and over

one million visitors.

industrialists and representatives

from major trade associations, has

51 offices in 34 countries across the

Multimodal Gateway

HONG Kong's status as one of the

world's best equipped multimodal

gateways has been boosted by the

completion of the new international

airport at Chep Lak Kok and nine

other major civil engineering

projects connected with its opening.

The state-of-the-art airport, built

on 1,248 hectares of reclaimed land

north-west of Lantau Island, will

boast an ultimate capacity of 87

million passengers and nine

million tonnes of cargo a year.

Its remote location ensures that

the airport, initially equipped to

handle 35 million passengers and

three million tonnes of freight a

year, enjoys around-the-clock

operating status.

The airport — which replaces

Kai Tak, one of the top three

international airports handling

nearly 30 million passengers and

1.5 million tonnes of cargo worth

over HK $560 billion (US$70

billion) a year — is currently

served by 60 scheduled

It provides direct connections to

Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway

(MTR) at Central and at Lai King,

courtesy of a new interchange

offering direct connections to the

Tsuen Wan Line.

Major new road systems include

the West Kowloon Expressway and

the 12.5 km long North Lantau

Expressway to Chep Lak Kok. Both

offer connections to Route 3, the

Western Harbour Crossing, is

capable of accommodating

180,000 vehicles a day.

The West Kowloon Reclamation,

providing 334 hectares of land

between Yau Ma Tei and Lai Chi

Kok for a multitude of purposes, is

the largest reclamation project ever

undertaken in Hong Kong,

increasing the size of the Kowloon

peninsula by a third and adding

one kilometre of waterfront.

Tung Chung on north Lantau,

designed to accommodate a

new town and the first to be

built on an island.

All projects form part of the

Airport Core Programme (ACP),

one of the world's largest civil

engineering projects, designed to

enhance the territory's role as a

major international financial, trading

and business centre.

The Hong Kong Government

contributed HK $110 billion

(US$14.3 billion) towards the total

HK$155 billion (US$20 billion)

cost of all ten ACP projects.

Private sector investment and

commercial loans fund the

remaining development costs.

Hong Kong's rapidly growing

transport infrastructure provides

nearly 1,800 kilometres of

interlinking road networks up to the

border with China.

Hong Kong Island is covered by

one network and Kowloon, Kwun

Tong and Junk Bay by another,

whilst a third road system provides

rapid connection times between the

six new towns (Fan Ling, Sha Tin,

Tai Po, Tsuen Wan, Tuen Mun and

Yuen Long) of the New Territories.

Three road tunnels, including the

recently completed Western

Harbour Crossing, link Hong Kong

urban areas with surrounding

industrial sites.

Numerous ferry companies

operating out of dedicated facilities

at Hong Kong Port provide hundreds

of services a day for both

commuters and holidaymakers. Star

Ferries, perhaps the port's most

internationally famous operator,

provides a constant

flow of services from

Central to Tsim Sha

In addition to the

MTR, Hong Kong is served by the

Kowloon-Canton Railway (KCR) and

Light Rail Transit (LRT) system, one

of the world's most sophisticated

urban transport systems, linking NT

towns with Tuen Mun and Yuen Long.

KCR, equipped with 34 kilometres

of track stretching from Kowloon

As always, doing business in Hong Kong

is easy to predict.

No other economy in Asia has such an open,

transparent regulatory regime, offering a level

playing-field for international business.

As well, Hong Kong's fundamentals -

expertise in a broad range of business

services, a diverse manufacturing base,

and unique strengths in the Chinese market

- are prime capital for continued growth.

Simply put, Hong Kong enhances the value

of every transaction.

Whether neighbouring seas are rough or

port operations

Marine services ensure safety is a top

priority at Hong Kong Port

The Government's Marine

Department is responsible for

maintaining the port's excellent

safety record, increasingly important

in recent years as traffic volumes

grow with the port's success.

THE waterways of Hong Kong

continue to be some of the busiest in

the world with over 230,000

dockings during 1997.

Ensuring the efficient and safe

operation of the port is the Hong

Kong SAR Government's Marine

Department, which is responsible

for all navigational matters and

safety standards for all classes

and types of vessels.

Headed by the Director of Marine,

S.Y. Tsui, the Marine Department is

guided by its mission to 'Promote

Excellence in Marine Services'. The

Department is a unique entity in the

international maritime community due

to the many duties it performs to

ensure the port's operations run

smoothly. 'The Marine Department is

not simply a government department/'

explained S.Y. Tsui. "We are also a

port authority in the eye of marine

administrations overseas," he said.

To facilitate efficient operations, the

Department is divided into five

operational divisions — Port Control,

Planning and Services, Multi-Lateral

Policy, Government Fleet, and

Shipping — each led by an

Assistant Director of Marine. In

total the Department employs

approximately 1,700 people.

Safety is a leading concern of the

Marine Department. An encouraging

20 percent decline in the number of

serious marine accidents in 1997

compared to the previous year is a

result of enhanced efforts in marine

traffic control. 'The maritime industry

is becoming more aware of the

importance of maintaining safety in the

harbour, and the Marine Department is

now more proactive in its safety

management approach," Mr Tsui said.

Commenting on the direction of the

Marine Department following the

reunification of Hong Kong with the

People's Republic of China, Mr Tsui

spoke of closer links with the

mainland. "In the future, we will have

more contact with our counterparts in

China, and I expect both sides will

have to co-operate often and make

use of each other's facilities,

information and technology," he said.

Mr Tsui acknowledged that Hong

Kong will now work closely with the

mainland with regards to

representations to international

forums such as the International

Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Locally, the Department works

closely with a number of Government

Departments and shipping

representative groups to ensure a

co-ordinated approach to port

The Marine Department has been

working hard to increase its userfriendliness

in line with the

Administration's 'Helping Business'

initiative. These efforts delivered

simplified bureaucratic procedures,

computerisation of records and

enhanced customer service by the

Marine Department staff.

"Helping business is a government

policy in Hong Kong, so that is what

we do/' stated Mr Tsui.



Vessel Traffic Services

THE Vessel Traffic Services (VTS)

Branch of the Marine Department

provides services to sea-going

vessels and high-speed ferries

employed on international routes, to

facilitate their arrivals, expeditious

business activities and departures as

quickly and safely as possible.

These objectives are achieved


(a) The Vessel Traffic Centre (VTC)

maintains surveillance coverage of

95 percent of Hong Kong waters

navigable by sea-going vessels so as

to monitor and regulate vessel

movements and the VTC also gives

information and offers advice to

mariners through a VHP network

according to prevailing navigational


(b) The Port Formalities Office (PFO)

which enables all necessary

formalities concerning vessels

entering and leaving Hong Kong to

be achieved, and

(c) The provision of free

shipping information services to

agencies and the

provision of daily reports on a

fee-paying basis.

Passenger Terminal Services

THE Marine Department manages

both the Macau and China Ferry

Terminals which, respectively,

provide centralised ferry services to

Macau and various ports in China.

Satisfying the needs of tens of

millions of travellers every year, the

terminals are operated by the

government on a cost-recovery basis.

The Macau Ferry Terminal provides

10 operational berths for high-speed

passenger vessels, two conventional

ferry berths and a helipad which

allows helicopter services between

Hong Kong and Macau.

The China Ferry Terminal

provides eight berths for highspeed

passenger ferries and three

conventional ferry berths.

Harbour Moorings

THE Marine Department maintains a

total of 61 moorings mostly laid

within the Port of Hong Kong for the

use of commercial shipping.


port operations

One of the many functions of the Marine Department is to

facilitate the safe and swift movement of ships,

cargoes and passengers through the port.

Of these, there are 41 'A' Class

moorings suitable for vessels of a

length not exceeding 183 metres,

and 20 'B' Class moorings for

vessels no longer than 137

metres in length.

Buoy dues are levied by the

Marine Department on vessels using

government moorings.

Pollution Control

THE Marine Department's Pollution

Control Unit is responsible for

preventing and cleaning up oil

discharges into sea and harbour

cleansing services.

The Unit undertakes regular

inspections of vessels that are

bunkering/transferring oil in Hong

Kong waters and advises the masters

on the precautions to be taken.

The Pollution Control Unit also

checks oil terminals to ensure

that their anti-oil pollution

equipment is in good order.

The unit provides a floating refuse

scavenging service in the harbour

and in the major typhoon shelters

and a free, daily domestic waste

collection service to sea-going

vessels moored or anchored in

Victoria Harbour.

Maritime Search and Rescue

(SAR) and Marine

Emergency Centre (MEC)

SINCE its establishment in 1985, the

Marine Department's Maritime

Rescue Co-ordination Centre

(MRCC) has become one of the

world's most highly regarded search

and rescue facilities.

The Marine Department is the

Maritime Search and Rescue

Co-ordinator for the area of the

South China Sea north of latitude

100° north and west of longitude

120° east, excluding the immediate

coastal waters of neighbouring

states. Covering an area of some

450,000 square kilometres, the

MRCC is one of the few fully

operational shore-based radio

stations of the Global Maritime

Distress and Safety System. It is

also instrumental in saving hundreds

of lives each year.

The Marine Emergency Centre

(MEC) is co-located with the MRCC

on the 12th floor of the Rumsey

Street Multi-storey Car Park

Building, Sheung Wan, where full

communication capability is

available for the co-ordination of

search and rescue missions for ships

getting into difficulties within about

1,300 kilometres of Hong Kong.

A full-time staff of SAR trained

officers are on duty at the MRCC

and MEC 24 hours a day.


THE Director of Marine is the

autority regulating and monitoring

pilotage services in Hong Kong.

Compulsory pilotage covers ships

of 3000 gross registered tonnes or

more and all gas carriers, which are

required to telex the Vessel Traffic

Centre 12 hours in advance of their

estimated arrival time to advise on

their requirement for the services of

a pilot. Pilotage services are

provided on a 24-hour basis by a

licensed pilot who is a member of

the Hong Kong Pilots Association.

Hydrographic Service

THE Hydrographic Office has taken

over provision to the shipping

port operations

Hong Kong's Public Cargo Working Areas are now contracted to the

private sector to ensure a more efficient use of facilities.

community of nautical services

which were provided by the British

Academy before the reversion of

sovereignty on 1 July 1997. The

office continues major re-surveys of

the port, and publish and sell

bilingual nautical charts and

publications. Hydrographic surveys

and nautical charts follow the

standards set by the International

Hydrographic Office.

The Port Services Division of the

Department is responsible for

ensuring that information contained

on charts and in nautical

publications is accurate and up-todate,

with a Hydrographic Office

established within the division to

perform these tasks.

Services to Local Craft

PROVIDING services to the

thousands of local Hong Kong craft,

the Marine Department has a number

of local offices throughout the SAR

for regulating and controlling local

craft, processing entry and clearance

of local and river-trade vessels,

managing public cargo working areas

and typhoon shelters.

The Department's duties

include licensing of launches,

ferries and pleasure vessels.

Public Cargo

Handling Areas

THE Marine Department has been

working in recent years to reform the

operation of Hong Kong's Public

Cargo Working Areas (PCWAs) to

ensure more efficient and fair use of

the facilities. As a result, berthing

space in PCWAs is now contracted

to specific users in the private sector.

These new arrangements began

operation in February 1998 after an

extensive 18-month consultation

period within the government and

with the industry.

Port State Control

HONG Kong is a founding

Committee Member of the Asia-

Pacific Regional Memorandum of

Understanding on Port State Control

(commonly known as the Tokyo

MOU) which was established in

December 1993.

The Marine Department is

obliged to ensure that non-HK

registered ships entering the Port

of Hong Kong comply with the

requirements of various international

conventions (IMO and ILO).

To satisfy its obligations under

the Tokyo MOU, the Marine

Department conducted port state

control inspections on 501 non-HKregistered

ships in 1997 with a reinspection

of about 40 percent. A

total of 769 inspections were

conducted in 1997, compared to a

total 475 inspections during the

previous year.

International Safety

Management Code

THE International Code for the Safe

Operation of Ships and for Pollution

Prevention — commonly known as

the International Safety Management

(ISM Code) — was incorporated into

the International Convention for the

Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) in May


The ISM Code will become

mandatory on 1 July 1998 for

passenger ships (including highspeed

ferries), oil tankers, chemical

tankers, gas carriers, bulk carriers

and cargo high-speed craft.

Department in 1995 to assist in determining future planning and

expansion needs of the port up to the year 2001.

responsible for the auditing of Hong

Kong registered ships in conjunction

with recognised organisations to

ensure compliance with the ISM

Code. The Department is confident

that all Hong Kong registered ships

will obtain the ISM certifications by

the 1 July 1998 deadline.

The Marine Department will

rigorously exercise port state control

in respect of the ISM Code after 1

July 1998 to ensure that all ships

visiting Hong Kong have in place a

Safety Management System (SMS).

MARAD Strategy Study

THE heavy use of Hong Kong

waters, combined with the

continuous development in the port,

demands efficient forward planning

to ensure that safety in the harbour

is not reduced.

To this end, the Marine Department

commissioned the MARAD Strategy

Study (Comprehensive Study on

Marine Activities, Associated Risk

Assessment and Development of a

Future Strategy for the Optimum

Usage of Hong Kong Waters) in

September 1995.

The study, which was completed

in February 1997, assesses the

present and future levels of marine

navigation risk in Hong Kong and

has established the way for a

blueprint for the best use of Hong

Kong waters up to the year 2001

through better integration of land

developments and water activities.

In accordance with the report's

recommendations, the Marine

Department has stepped up

necessary control and enforcement

measures in the harbour and has

reorganised to create a unified

patrol system to enhance patrolling

of Hong Kong Waters.

Kwai Chung Container Port

THE jewel in the crown of the Port of

Hong Kong is the Kwai Chung

Container Port. Located on the

following the opening of the Chinese

mainland to international trade in

1978, which allowed Kwai Chung to

There are currently eight container

terminals at Kwai Chung, divided

between four operators — Modern

Terminals Ltd (MTL), COSCO-HIT

Terminals (CHT), Hongkong

International Terminals (HIT) and Sea-

Land Orient Terminals (SLOT).

Productivity at Kwai Chung has

technology systems. As a result, the

operation of Kwai Chung continues

world's leading container port

Although COSCO-HIT Terminals(CHT) has only been operating since

to set the benchmarks by

which the rest of the world

determines best practice in

container port operations.

The demands of the new

millennium are to be met at Kwai

Chung through the construction of

the new Container Terminal 9 (CT9)

on Tsing Yi, which is due to be

operational by the end of 2001.

COSCO-HIT Terminals

COSCO-HIT Terminals (Hong Kong)

Ltd (CHT) is a 50/50 joint venture

between China Ocean Shipping

(Group) Company (COSCO)

and Hongkong International

Terminals Ltd (HIT).

The terminal, situated on the

northern corner of Stonecutters

Island, is joined to the Kwai Chung

Container Port by a land bridge and

has a designed handling capacity of

900,000 TEUs per annum.

CHT began operations in

January 1994 and became fully

operational in July of the same

year. In 1997 it handled over

1.3 million TEUs.

CHT operates a real-time

yard computer system and an

up-to-date ship planning system

which ensure fast and efficient

container movement.

In June 1998, a pre-advise

gatehouse system will be

launched to replace the existing

system for tractors to deliver and

pick up containers. By knowing

the arrival of tractors beforehand,

and making use of computer

systems to check documents and to

direct yard location, CHT will

further enhance the efficiency of

tractor turnaround.

Hongkong International

HONGKONG International

Terminals (HIT), as the flagship of

the world's largest private container

terminal operator, Hutchison Port

HIT carries out container freight

station activities in the Hongkong

which is located at Container

Terminal 4 and has over 290,000 sq

metres of storage area.

Driving HIT's growth in recent

years has been the company's $1.5

billion Productivity Plus Programme

(3P), whose key elements have

been to improve stacking, handling

and yard operations at HIT's Kwai

Chung terminals.

To increase stacking capacity in

the yard areas, HIT has acquired

new rail-mounted gantry cranes

(RMGs), which allow a very high

level of automation in their

operation. The stacking height of

some existing rubber-tyred gantry

cranes (RTGs) has also been

increased to allow for more efficient

land use and improved productivity.

The latest generation of postpanamax

quay cranes have been

purchased to increase container

handling capacity at the quay side.

HIT has also utilised new

information technology, known as

the 3P system, to improve yard

operations and deliver better

customer service.

The 3P project, which is

acknowledged to have boosted

HIT's productivity by over 30

percent, won the company the

MODERN Terminals Limited (MTL)

is Hong Kong's longest-established

container terminal, having operated

since the arrival on 5 September

1972 of the 58,000 tonne Tokyo

Bay — the first vessel ever to berth

at the Kwai Chung Container Port

Terminal One.

As the importance of

containerisation to the shipment of

cargo has increased over the past

quarter of a century, so has MTL's

size. MTL currently owns and

operates Terminals 1, 2 and 5 and

two berths at Terminal 8 (West),

with the capability of berthing eight

vessels simultaneously along their

combined length of 1,822 metres.

It has a workforce of over 1,300

employees and operates 24 hours a

day, throughout the year. Occupying

79.2 hectares, MTL has a stacking

capacity of 51,991 TEUs, served

by 19 quayside gantry cranes and

68 rubber-tyred gantry cranes.

There is an on-site, 12-storey

MTL's total throughput in 1997

was 2,037 TEUs, but following a

series of capacity enhancement

measures, the company's throughput

has been increased to 3.4

million TEUs.

A Customer Information

Services System (CIS) was

implemented in mid-1996,

enabling shipping companies

to retrieve on-line real time

information of MTL operations

such as container information

and vessel berthing schedules.

Beginning early next

century, MTL will start

operations at the yet-to-bebuilt

Container Terminal 9

(South) which, when

completed, will offer 1,210

metres of quayside frontage

and throughput capacity of

1.85 million TEUs. Upon

completion of CT9, MTL will hand

over its CT8 facility to a new

operator, Asia Container Terminals.

The new facility, to be located on

Tsing Yi Island, together with

ongoing efficiency improvements at

Terminals 1, 2 and 5, will see

overall annual throughput capacity

jump to 4 million TEUs.

With an eye on the burgeoning

volume of cargo required for

transportation between the rapidlydeveloping

industrialising areas

around the Pearl River Delta and

other parts of the world, MTL has

been exploring ways to expand

operations into the People's

Republic of China.

Negotiations and feasibility studies

are underway to determine the

possibility of MTL participating in

Western Shenzhen, Qingdao and

Ningbo Ports.

world's leading container port

The Asia Terminal Centre, operated by Sea-Land Terminals' subsidiary

Asia Terminals, is well-eqiiipped to handle freight operations

for the adjacent Terminal 3.

Sea-Land Orient Terminals have a 13 percent share of Hong Kong's

container handling market, and this looks set to rise with investment in

a new terminal to increase capacity.

Sea-Land Orient Terminals

SEA-LAND Orient Terminals (SLOT)

operates arguably the world's most

efficient container terminal,

handling more then one million

TEUs yearly despite the limitation of

a single berth.

A combination of high-tech

equipment, facilities and human

vigilance allowed SLOT to

accommodate 1.1 million TEUs in

1997, as an average of 20 vessels a

week called at Berth No. 3 of Hong

Kong's Kwai Chung Container Port.

Indeed such is the efficiency of its

handling operation that its 305

metre long berth — capable of

accommodating 5,500 TEU

capacity vessels with a draught of

1 2.2 metres — enjoys a 95 percent

utilisation rate 24 hours a day,

seven days a week.

SLOT's 1 7 hectare site is equipped

with 11 rubber-tyred gantry cranes,

14 bridge cranes and three quayside

gantry cranes which average 40

moves per hour, ensuring that it

takes SLOT just 10 hours to

load/discharge up to 1,200 TEUs

from a visiting vessel.

Located between the port's HIT

and MTL terminals, SLOT's facility

boasts a stacking capacity of 7,146

TEUs and a total yearly handling

capacity of 1.2 million TEUs.

High-tech computer systems and

EDI technology utilised at the

terminal include a Yard Inventory

Control System, a Vessel Stowage

System and a Gate System which

allows an average of 2,800 in-andout

transactions every 24 hours.

Container Freight Station

operations for Berth 3 take place in

the adjoining Asia Terminal Centre

— operated by SLOT subsidiary Asia

Terminals Ltd — which is equipped

with 94 receiving and loading bays.

SLOT also operates a container

storage and repair depot in South

Container Port Road, close to

Container Terminal 8, and utilises

the services of subsidiary Orient

Trucking Ltd (OTL) for onward

distribution by truck and barge to

destinations in Hong Kong and

mainland China.

OTL, which regularly operates

barges to Pearl River Delta ports,

currently has a fleet of 90 tractors

and 221 chassis based in Hong

Kong and nearly 100 tractors in

mainland China, used for carrying

out both cross-border trucking

operations and domestic services in

Guangdong Province in a jointventure

operations with Sinotrans.

Its comprehensive range of

services in Hong Kong has led to

SLOT capturing a lucrative 13

percent share of the regions

Managing Director Alan Y. Lee

said: "Our aim is simply to provide

the best possible service for our

customers. Hong Kong is the

gateway to Asia with vessels

calling at our facility primarily

serving the Asia-US, Asia-Asia

and Asia-Europe markets."

SLOT is determined to improve its

current facilities to ensure that it is

equipped to meet future demand by

participating in the investment of the

new HK$11 billion container

terminal (CT9) which will give Hong

Kong an additional holding capacity

of about 3.6 million TEUs

Its existing facility is exclusively

served by vessels operated by Sea-

mid-stream operations

'es at Hong Ko

Competitive mid-stream resources are a

vital boost to port activity

Essential to the port's operations are

the mid-stream facilites for offloading

cargo, originally acting as a relief to

congestion at Kwai Chung, they are

now an integral part of port activity.

MID-STREAM operations account for

a quarter of all cargo handling

activities at the Port of Hong Kong,

with more than 40 million tonnes of

freight a year being accommodated

by vessels at moorings or at anchor in

the busy harbour.

The Marine Department

specifically maintains 62 moorings

and eight public cargo working areas

equipped with nearly 7,700 metres

of quay for mid-stream operations,

ensuring Hong Kong's status as one

of the busiest gateways in the world

for such activity.

The facilities are complemented by

a fleet of 1,050 lighters and more

than 283 tow boats operated by

more than a dozen companies

carrying out mid-stream cargo

handling operations at the port.

All of the lighters in use at Hong

Kong Port, including 827 equipped

with their own derricks, allowing

them to load and discharge cargoes

between visiting vessels and the port's

quayside facilities.

The port's eight public cargo

working areas for mid-stream cargo

are located at Cha Kwo Ling, Kwun

Tong, Rambler Channel, Tuen Mun,

Tsuen Wan, Wan Chai, Western

District and new Yaumatei.

The port's dedicated moorings for

mid-stream operations are divided

into two classes — A for vessels of up

to 183 metres and B, for vessels with

a maximum length of 137 metres.

The combination of equipment and

facilities — more than 75 percent of

its moorings are 'typhoon' rated

ensuring that they are safe to use

during a tropical cyclone — allows

more than three million TEUs a

year to be handled mid-stream at the

Port of Hong Kong.

The total means that mid-stream

operations, originally viewed as

simply a low-cost alternative to

calling at Kwai Chung Container Port,

now account for 20 percent of all

Mid-Stream Facility at

Stonecutters Island.

The 6.7 hectare facility,

built by the Hong Kong SAR

Government, aims to provide

a lower cost alternative to

existing container terminals

and allow the port to better

absorb the spillover at

Kwai Chung during the busy

peak season.

When fully operational in

September 1998, the complex

will boast a 600,000 TEU per

annum capacity as a host of

private operators offer midstream

handling services for

container, semi-container, bulk

and break-bulk cargoes.

The terminal's six berths

are specifically designed to

accommodate river trade

and coastal size vessels as it

particularly aims to appeal to

intra-Asian traffic.


Dedicated providers of bulk materials

help fuel the economic engine

Imported into the Port of Hong Kong

every year are millions of tonnes of

bulk cargoes, including coal, cement

and petroleum, which are all

essential commodities for the power

and building industries in the region.

BULK cargoes primarily made up of

coal, cement and petroleum products

account for more than 50 million

tonnes of freight handled at the Port

of Hong Kong in 1996.

Coal is the main source of energy

for Hong Kong's two main power

stations which import nearly seven

million tonnes a year to facilities

capable of accommodating

140,000 dwt vessels.

Between them Green Island Cement

and Far East Cement handle nearly

three million tonnes of cement across

the gateway's quays yearly as noncontainerised

bulk shipments account

for around 18 percent of the

gateway's total tonnage throughput.

BP, Caltex, China Resources

Petroleum & Chemical (CRPC), Esso

and Shell are just a few of the major

oil companies with terminals at Hong

Kong Port capable of handling

100,000 dwt refined product tankers.

China Light & Power

CAPE-SIZE bulk carriers bring regular

coal shipments to CLP's Castle Peak

Power Station at Tuen Mun in the

New Territories.

The plant's cape-size berths are

capable of accommodating 140,000

dwt carriers up to 1 7 metres draught.

The use of dolphins allows the

simultaneous berthing of two vessels.

CLP uses the berths to import more

than 2.5 million tonnes of coal a

year to Hong Kong direct from coal

mines in Australia, Indonesia, South

Africa and China.

Quayside handling equipment at

the company's Hong Kong port-based

Japan, Korea and Thailand —

represent the bulk of the cargo

handled across its two main jetties.

A combination of 40 trucks and a

fleet of nine barges with combined

capacity of 6,000 tonnes and three

tugs are used to distribute its

products across Hong Kong and the

surrounding region.

The company's quayside storage

capacity includes silos designed to

hold up to 60,000 tonnes of cement

and a vast assortment of covered

storage areas capable of

accommodating up to 90,000

tonnes of limestone and 60,000

tonnes of clinker.

a strong endorsement for its

environmental efforts and has won

the Private Sector Committee on the

Environmental Performance Award

for two consecutive years.

Hongkong Electric

HONGKONG Electric uses a single

berth capable of accommodating

100,000 dwt vessels to import 3.5

million tonnes of coal a year to its

Hong Kong port-based power plant.

The berth boasts a water depth of

16.5 metres, two IHI

1,000 tph grab

unloaders and a IHI

1,500 tph continuous

loader, ensuring it is

more than well

equipped to quickly and

efficiently handle the

regular flow of coal

vessels from Australia,

China and Indonesia.

The company, which

uses its plant at Po Lo

Tsui to supply electricity to 1.5

million people living and working

in private and commercial premises

on Hong Kong and Lamma islands,

ensures that it always has a

minimum of six weeks supply

of coal in storage at its Lamma

Island facility.

To ensure adequate and reliable

electricity supply, Hongkong

Electric's coal inputs through the

Port of Hong Kong have increased

steadily over the years since 1982,

when the Lamma Power Station

first began operation. By

December 1997, the eighth

coal-fired generating unit was

commissioned, bringing the total

installed capacity to 3,305 MW.

Hong Kong's sub-tropical climate

certainly ensures distinct daily and

seasonal demand for electricity

supplies with summer's peak low,

due to the drop in the need for

lighting and heating during daylight

hours almost compensated for by a

huge increase in usage of air

conditioning to combat average

30° C temperatures with up to 100

percent humidity.

international shipping

A wealth of opportunities attract

successful shipping lines

The authorities of Hong Kong and the

organisations founded to look after

the interests of shipping in the area

are working together to ensure

that local shipping industry

continues to prosper.

The Hong Kong Shipping


THE coming year looks set to be a

year of growth for the Hong Kong

Shipping Register. The Register, which

records the details of vessels that

operate under the Hong Kong SAR

flag, was at its lowest in November

1997 with only 5.543 million Gross

Registered Tonnage (CRT), which

represents almost a 40 percent

decline compared with its peak of

9.09 million CRT in May 1996.

The two main reasons for the drop

were the movement of British-owned

vessels to other British registers

following Hong Kong's reunification

with China, and a level of

uncertainty among some shipowners

about possible operational

restrictions on their Hong Kongregistered

vessels after 1997.

However, the smooth transition to

the 'One Country, Two Systems'

model has allayed many concerns,

with the expectation that Hong

Kong-based shipowners, along

with a number of mainland

Chinese shipowners, are beginning to

place vessels on the Hong Kong

Shipping Register.

Towards the end of 1997, the

tonnage on the Register has shown a

steady growth; by the end of March

1998, there were 487 vessels totalling

6.067 million CRT.

The Hong Kong Government's

Marine Department, in its role as

administrator of the Shipping

Register, has continued its efforts to

help the shipping industry together

with the Hong Kong Shipowners

Association (HKSOA) and other

interested parties. Measures were

also introduced to make the register

more internationally competitive.

Improvements to the Hong Kong

Shipping Register announced in early

1998 include:

international shipping

Arthur Bowring, Director of Hong Kong Shipowners Association is

responsible for actively promoting the interests of both shipowners

and shipmanagers in the region.

The requirement for the first

registry inspection for cargo ships

not more than 10 years old to be

waived provided the first annual

survey is conducted by a

government surveyor;

Hong Kong registered ships will be

required to install safety equipment

in line with international maritime

convention requirements; and

• Fees for the issue of Hong Kong

licences to foreign certified officers

and for the employment and

discharge of seafarers to be

absorbed by annual tonnage dues.

In addition to these measures, a

government/private sector working

group has been formed to consider

long-term improvements to further

improve the competitiveness of the

Hong Kong Shipping Register.

According to S.Y Tsui, Director of

Marine, the new initiatives will not

compromise safety standards onboard

Hong Kong SAR registered

vessels. "Our objective is to

maintain the quality of our Register,

but we also go along the line of

helping business. The Marine

Department is trying to streamline

procedures and get rid of

bureaucracy along with outdated

rules and regulations/' he said.

Arthur Bowring, Director of the

HKSOA, said a number of Hong

Kong-based shipowners are now

realising the potential benefits of

also having their vessels registered

in Hong Kong. "A lot of shipowners

in Hong Kong are asking: 'Why

should I have my ship registered

with some nameless bureaucrat in

Panama or New York' I would

rather have somebody down the road

who I can call up and talk to now/'

Mr Bowring said.

The Hong Kong Register has a very

good status and the Marine

Department is very accommodating

— they are very customer focused

and client responsive/' he added.

The Hong Kong Shipowners


THE Hong Kong Shipowners

Association (HKSOA) serves the

primary purpose of promoting the

interests of the large shipowner and

shipmanaging community in the

Special Administrative Region.

The fleet of vessels owned or

managed by the Association's

membership — over 1,000 oceangoing

vessels totalling 52.5 million

dead weight tonnes — represents

one of the largest in the world. All

vessel types are represented on the

association's book, with over 40

percent classified as bulk carriers,

while tanker and container ships are

also prevalent. Vessels owned or

managed by HKSOA members

include those registered in 35

countries, with the majority of

vessels flagged in Panama, Hong

Kong or Liberia.

Since its establishment in 1957, the

HKSOA has grown to become

internationally respected in maritime

circles as an authoritative source of

opinion on issues affecting Asian

shipping interests.

The unique composition of the

Association, with a large number

of associate members from all fields

of the maritime sector, sees the

HKSOA active in a wide range of


Association Director, Arthur

Bowring, believes it is the varied

membership that is the strength

behind the HKSOA's success. "By

having associate members it gives us

international shipping

Neil Russell, Chairman of Hong Kong Liner Shipping Association

which concentrates on operational and logistical issues for the many

lines it represents.

the opportunity to look at issues indepth

without having to have a huge

secretariat/' Mr Bowring said.

Associate members of the

organisation include major banks,

classification societies, maritime

lawyers, average adjusters, ship

agencies, shipbrokers, ship builders

and repairers, surveyors, insurance

brokers and Protection and Indemnity

(P&l) clubs. The process of opinion

forming is achieved through subcommittees

and working groups, with

the executive committee overseeing

the Association's operation.

The HKSOA has also been a

leading member of the seven-year old

Asian Shipowners Forum (ASF).

"We're very active in the forum itself

and have members on all the (ASF)

standing committees. By doing that

we're collecting opinions across Asia

on a lot of the issues and on how

these issues are affecting Asians,"

Mr Bowring said.

Despite the fact that Hong

Kong's Chief Executive Tung Chee

Hwa was a former Chairman of

the HKSOA in 1976-77, the

Association believes that the profile of

the shipping industry needs to be

raised in government circles.

"Shipping, by nature, is a very private

business normally run by private

individuals who have their own ships

— it's not necessarily a transparent

business," Mr Bowring said. 'The

association is hoping to increase the

awareness of people in Government

and the Legislative Council of what

we're trying to achieve."

The association is also

endeavouring to lift the international

profile of Hong Kong as a shipping

centre. "I don't think a lot of

people in the rest of the world

realise the amount of shipping

business that goes on in Hong

Kong," Mr Bowring said.

To achieve these goals, the HKSOA

is increasing efforts to collect data

and promote the Hong Kong

maritime sector. "We're keen on

promoting Hong Kong as an

inclusive centre and telling people

what we have to offer as a gateway

to Asia and the rest of China," Mr

Bowring said.

The return of Hong Kong to

Chinese sovereignty has seen the

HKSOA develop close links with

Beijing, with the association

meeting with the People's

Republic of China then Premier Li

Peng in November 1997, as well as

with the Minister of

Communications Huang Zhen

Dong. "The association had a

fantastic reception in

Beijing and we had this

wonderful feeling of

being part of the family,"

said Mr Bowring.

Enjoying 'the best of

both worlds', he

explained that concerns

over the return of Hong

Kong to Chinese

sovereignty have proven

unfounded. "Hong

Kong, as a part of

China, has unrivalled

access into Beijing and,

at the same time, Beijing

wants to keep Hong

Kong completely

autonomous and very international,"

Mr Bowring said.

The Hong Kong Liner

Shipping Association

PROVIDING a common voice for the

many shipping lines that call at the

Port of Hong Kong is the Hong Kong

Liner Shipping Association.

An active participant in industry

affairs since its founding in 1982, the

Liner Shipping Association counts

among its members over 90 percent

of all shipping lines and agencies

that are represented in Hong Kong.

The Association does not involve

itself in commercial issues such as

freight rate negotiations or the

determination of surcharges,

preferring to focus on operational

and logistical issues affecting all

shipping lines.

"The issue of the competitiveness

of Hong Kong is at the top of the


international shipping

Executive Director ofHoiuj Konj] Shippers 3 Council, Clement Yucng, is

irorkinjj to improve conditions for importers and exporters in Honjj Kinijj.

Agenda for this year/' said

Secretary/Treasurer Roberto

Giannetta. "We see there is an issue

where Hong Kong is becoming

uncompetitive compared to the

regional ports, particularly the

regional People's Republic of China

ports/ 7 he said.

Mr Giannetta warned that Hong

Kong must act now to maintain its

competitiveness. "Hong Kong's

position as the world's busiest

container port is probably going to

be lost in the next few years... but

we do want to see the port stay as

competitive as possible/' he said.

To communicate its views, the

Hong Kong Liner Shipping

Association is a member of a

number of government run

committees, including the Pilotage

Advisory Committee, the Port

Operation Committee, and the

Liner Transport Container

Handling Committee.

In particular, the Association

points to Hong Kong's position as

'the most expensive port in the

world' as an impediment to the

port's continued competitiveness,

particularly compared to the

neighbouring Shenzhen ports like

Yantian, Shekhou and Chiwan.

A further issue that the Liner

Shipping Association has been

promoting is the need to dredge the

Rambler Channel into Kwai Chung

from its current depth of 12 metres

to a depth of 14-15 metres.

This work, which would enable

the port to accommodate the latest

generation of containerships when

they are fully loaded, is now

expected to be completed by the

year 2001, when the new Container

Terminal 9 project is finished.

The Association would also like

to see the dredging of the Tong

Gu channel to allow shipping

lines easier access to the Pearl

River Delta ports.

Mr Giannetta concluded that the

Liner Shipping Association aimed to

maintain Hong Kong as a regional

shipping hub. "Hong Kong is a great

place for consolidation and having

everything together in one place.

There is an advantage to shipping

lines maintaining a hub based in

Hong Kong, as long as the price is

right and as long as it makes

commercial sense," he said.

The Hong Kong

Shippers' Council

THE lifeline of an international

trading port like Hong Kong are the

people whose cargo is moved in

and out of the port — the importers

and exporters.

Bringing together this diverse

group of individuals and companies

is The Hong Kong

Shippers' Council


Established in

1967, the Council

represents shippers

on issues relating

to the movement

of goods by sea,

air and land.

"One of our

main activities is

to monitor freight

rates and the level of services of the

transport service providers,"

explained HKSC Executive Director,

Clement Yeung. "If we feel the

freight rates are unreasonable or the

level of service is not good enough,

we will raise the issue with the

parties concerned," Mr Yeung said.

The Council is always keen to

promote the expansion of facilities

within the Port of Hong Kong, and

has been a big supporter of the new

Container Terminal 9 project which

will soon be built at Kwai Chung, as

well as developments of new

container terminals in Lantau.

The Hong Kong Shippers' Council

is also very active in the provision of

training to shippers and transport

sectors through a range of short and

long-term education programmes on

shipping, air freight, trade

documentation and cargo insurance.

The representation of Hong Kong

shippers in international forums is

an important function of the

Council. Participation on the

Federation of ASEAN Shippers'

Council is one example of the

HKSC's international activities.


international shipping

China Navigation always delivers a quality service, with its 12 vessels

offering both charter and liner operations to South East Asia

and the Pacific.

The Council also publishes the

bimonthly, bilingual magazine

Shippers Today, which is distributed

to freight forwarders, shipping

lines, airlines and transportation

companies in Hong Kong, China

and overseas.

The main membership of the

organisation is based on 15 major

trade and industry associations,

while there are also around 50

individual companies that have

chosen to support the HKSC by

seeking associate membership.

Issues of concern, which the

Council aims to address this year,

include the ongoing debate regarding

the level of terminal handling

charges (THCs) imposed upon

shippers by the shipping lines, and

the higher cost of using the new

Hong Kong International Airport at

Chep Lap Kok compared to Kai Tak.

In recent years, the Council has

also been lifting its relationship with

the People's Republic of China. "We

have been trying to work closely

with the Chinese authorities

responsible for the transportation of

goods because this is an important

issue for Hong Kong shippers/' Mr

Yeung said. "And although the Hong

Kong Port is very efficient, it is not

very cheap, so we take it upon

ourselves to keep shippers informed

of the developments in the Chinese

ports, especially those across the

border in Shenzhen," he added.

China Navigation

CHINA Navigation Co. (CNCo) Ltd,

the deep sea flag carrier of the

multi-faceted Swire Group, boasts a

fleet of 12 Hong Kong registered

vessels utilised on both liner and

charter services across south east

Asia and the Pacific region.

The vessels, which make up

75 percent of its 1 6 ship fleet,

include regular Hong Kong Port

callers the 500-TEU capacity

container vessel Poyang and

1 5,500 dwt container/ro-ro carrier

Pacific Islander.

The Pacific Islander, capable of

accommodating 446 TEUs and nearly

600 vehicles, calls at Hong Kong as

part of CNCo's twice monthly Greater

Bali Hai liner service, connecting

Hong Kong, Japan and Korea with 11

south Pacific islands including Fiji,

Tahiti, Western Samoa and the

Cook Islands. The 9,744 dwt Poyang

calls at the port about once every

three weeks as it carries out timecharter

operations between Japan,

China and Taiwan.

The average age of the CNCo's

fleet is just eight years, with the

163,000 dwt Capesize bulker,

Erradale, representing the largest dry

cargo vessel built at a UK yard.

In addition, CNCo jointly owns

four deep-sea container vessels with

P&O Nedlloyd and three feeder-size

container ships with Korea's Dong

Young Shipping.

Founded in 1872, CNCo uses its

fleet to provide liner services to 72

ports in the south Pacific region and

container and bulk operations

worldwide on a charter basis.

General Manager Fleet, Captain

Duncan Telfer, said: "In global terms

we are small compared to other

shipping lines but our priority is

quality service not size. The

importance of Hong Kong to

China Navigation is reflected in

the fact that our worldwide

shipping headquarters is still based

here despite just a few dozen port

calls a year."

CNCo managed liner operations

include Chief Container Service

(Australia-South Pacific), New

Guinea Pacific Line (South East Asia-

South Pacific-Australia), and the

Greater Bali Hai (North and East

Asia-Pacific Islands).

Regular cargoes carried by CNCo

vessels, currently handling around

100,000 TEUs yearly, include

everything from bags of rice,

condensed milk, coffee, cocoa

and copra to copper ore and

other metals.

Other Hong Kong companies

which are 100 percent owned or

jointly owned by the Swire Group

include Cathay Pacific Airways,

Hong Kong United Dockyards

(HUD) and Modern Terminals

Limited (MTL).

strong product to meet

our customers' needs

both for the present and

the future. Together we

ensure a balanced fleet

deployment in the major

Comprehensive services are the key to

smooth-running port operations

The array of companies providing

port services at Hong Kong

are committed to providing the best

possible performance and play a vital

role in maintaining the port's

popularity as a prime Asian gateway.

Chemical (CRPC) operates its own

fleet of bunker barges as does Feoso

Oil Ltd, Mobil and Shell. Other

bunker suppliers at the port include

Caltex, Esso and BP.

HONG Kong boasts one of the

world's most comprehensive and

versatile maritime service industries

embracing thousands of companies

dedicated to ensuring the smooth

around-the-clock flow of vessels and

cargo through the port.

From agents and brokers

representing various vessels to

forwarders, tug companies and an

assortment of specialist cargo

handling operators, all play a vital

part in helping maintain the gateway's

status as the hub of Asia and the

world's busiest container port.


HONG Kong has long been the preeminent

port for Southern China and

the hub for feeder ports around the

South China Sea. In a city where

change is the only constant, however,

nothing can be taken for granted.

Steady expansion of South China

ports — such as Yantian, Zhuhai and

Gaolan — and the resumption of

cross-straits shipping between Taiwan

and mainland China is having a

significant impact on the ocean

shipping industry. As a result, the Port

of Hong Kong must compete hard in


THE port's oil terminals provide

various grades of heavy fuel oil,

Transportation Community Network

Ltd - is providing Hong Kong's ocean

shipping industry with a powerful

new tool to keep the shipments

flowing. CargoNet's PortNet project

— which is backed by a consortium

representing local and international

transport and IT interests — became

fully operational in May 1998.

PortNet was one of the first, and a

significant piece, of CargoNet's

unique suite of applications which

applies a shared real time

information network to the task of

transacting international trade.

Global IT services giant EDS — one

of CargoNet's major backers —

plans to use Hong Kong's

PortNet as the model for similar

developments in other major

global trading centres.

According to Ian Craig, Chief

Executive of CargoNet, PortNet uses

intelligent network technology to

enable much of the workflow

involved in the trade process to

take place in parallel, rather than

through the traditional multi-stage,

paper-based process.

"From the outset our concept was

to speed up the trade cycle by

introducing the ability for trade

information to be routed to multiple

parties at the same time/' said Mr

Craig. 'Through PortNet, the

information needed by the different

players in the trade process is

delivered as soon as it is generated

by whoever 'owns' that particular

piece of information. The level of

control inherent in the realtime

technology we're employing means

everyone gets the information they

need to do their job — nothing

more and nothing less."

PortNet employs standard Internet

technologies and marries them to a

more sophisticated real time

information transport mechanism.

The result is a real time

e-commerce extranet in which core

infrastructure is shared between

PortNet members with different

applications, and interfaces are

provided to meet specific sector

and company requirements.

The concept of a realtime

electronic commerce extranet has

been under development by

CargoNet since 1996, with much

of the detailed planning for PortNet

taking place during a six-month

analysis of information workflow

at Hongkong International

Terminals (HIT), another major

CargoNet backer.

HIT puts a lot of emphasis on

information infrastructure in its

strategy of continuously increasing

efficiency to maintain Hong Kong's

position as the region's hub for

container transport. PortNet plays a

key role in the strategy by enabling

terminal operators to add value by

acting as information hubs and

help the ocean shipping industry

as a whole to become more


The first phase of PortNet was

rolled out in December 1997 with

support for real time information

links between terminal operators

and shipping lines, among which

K-Lines and Maersk were among

the first to sign up for the new

service. Phase two, which extended

PortNet to include freight

forwarders such as Cargo Services,

Calberson and Kuehne & Nagel,

went live in March 1998.

Network applications to support

shippers — along with links to

government agencies such as

Customs and Excise and other

business partners — were delivered

in May 1998, establishing PortNet

as a complete community system for

the Port of Hong Kong.

According to Mr Craig, CargoNet

will continue to expand the scope of

the network to bring in other parties

in the trade and transport cycle such

as marine insurers and banks that

are active in the Hong Kong trade

finance market.

"We anticipate having all the

important players in the ocean

industry participating in PortNet

by the end of 1998. As the

number of real time participants

in the community network

expands, the value of the whole

port history

A rich history of international trade sets

the standard for present day success

Over the past 150 years, Hong

Kong has flourished as a trade

and shipping centre, paving

the way for today's prosperity.


THE histories of Hong Kong and the port

are inextricably intertwined. Established

by the British government for the primary

use as an entrepot to the Chinese

mainland, the port has serviced the needs

of all types of shipping throughout its

history — from the early days of sail and

steam ships to the latest generation of

diesel powered container ships.

In the wake of the First Anglo-Chinese

War, Hong Kong Island was given to the

British by the Manchu Government

following the Treaty of Nanjing, which

was signed on 29 August 1842.

With the exception of a four-year

period during World War 11,,Hong Kong

remained under British control until 30

June 1997, at which time the region was

returned to Chinese sovereignty.

According to the records of the East

India Company, use of the Hong Kong

harbour by British Merchant vessels goes

back as far as 1689, with the port

steadily growing as a trade centre since

the early 1800s.

After the signing of the Treaty of

Nanjing, growth of Hong Kong

accelerated, with Sir Henry Pottinger

declaring the port to be a free port and

open to all ships, without discrimination,

in March 1842. i *£,

tjhe Second Anglo-Chinese War during

1856-58 was ended by the Treaty of

Tianjin, but following further hostilities,

the 1869 Convention of Peking saw the

handover of Stonecutters Island and

areas of the Kowloon peninsula to the

British, The New Territories were added

to the Hong Kong region on 9 June

!1898, under a 99-year lease from the

Chinese Government.

The busy trade in and out of Hong Kong

was soon supplemented by locally

manufactured goods in the last quarter of

the 19th century, by which time the port

had emerged as a major centre for world

trade. Alongside this, the port became a

thriving shipping services industry,

including ship building and ship repair

facilities, with the first dry dock in Hong

Kong completed in Aberdeen in 1860.

Ferry services, now an essential part of

the harbour view, first emerged in 1880

when the first regular cross-harbour

I service was launched.

The return of the British to Hong Kong

after the conclusion of the Second World

War saw the port resume its role as a

major international trade centre — a title

which was cemented with the emergence

of the new era of containerisation.

The arrival of containership Tokyo Bay

at Modern Terminal Limited's newly

finished Kwat Chung Container terminal

on 5 September 1972 was a watershed

moment not only for the port, but for all

of the people of Hong Kong. ^J^"

Now, as the world's largest container

port, the faith of those early pioneers in

|the future of containerisation has well and

truly been vindicated.

HongKong United Dockyards has been repairing ships for 130 years and

includes the QE2 as one of its prestigious clients.

HongKonjj United Dockyard's Tsing Ti Island ship repair yard has one

of the largest and most up-to-date floating docks in Asia.

HongKong United


HONGKONG United Dockyards

(HUD), one of the few dockyards to

be continuously in business for

more than 130 years, specialises in

routine and emergency drydockings

and repairs to vessels at the

shipyard and afloat at berths, buoys

and anchorage.

The company, formed from the

1973 merger of the Hong Kong &

Whampoa Dock Company and

Taikoo Dockyard & Engineering Co.,

boasts clients ranging from the

world's largest container vessels to

cruiseships such as the QE2.

HUD's main 100,000 sq metre

ship repair yard at Tsing Yi Island is

equipped with one of the biggest

and most modern floating docks in

Asia. The floating dock United was

relocated to the site earlier this year

from its previous mooring at Yam 0

off Lantau Island. It has a lifting

capacity of 40,000 tonnes and is

able to handle most types and sizes

of vessels, particularly the new

generation of container vessels up

to 300 metres in length and with a

beam of up to 41 metres. HUD's

other floating dock, Whampoa has

a length over blocks of 220 metres,

an operational width of 32.3

metres and lifting capacity of

20,000 tonnes.

The company's Tsing Yi Island

yard also contains 250 metres of

jetty, mobile and fixed gantry

cranes of up to 120 tonnes capacity

and an assortment of specialist

workshops that includes the largest

steel workshop in Hong Kong

equipped with presses up to 500

tonnes, rolls, cutting and welding

facilities and four 30-tonne capacity

overhead cranes.

Its impressive range of facilities

allowed HUD to carry out dry

dock and floating repairs to more

than 60 vessels in 1997 with most

ships spending less than seven

days in port.

Typical ship repair work carried

out by HUD covers everything

from routine repairs and

refurbishment to major overhauls,

conversions and lengthening.

New streamlined HUD, which

today employs 525 full-time staff

after a major operational

restructure in November 1997

counts all the leading shipowners

and ship management companies

among its customers.

HUD's Marine Manager, George

Windram, said: "We are always

striving to improve our performance

as the competition, particularly from

ship yards in mainland China, is

fierce. Hong Kong, however, is a

preferred port of call for most ship

owners and our reliable, quality, ontime

performance record persuades

many to use our facilities despite


higher costs than elsewhere in

south-east Asia/'

The company complements

operations at its Hong Kong

facilities by providing a range of

specialised marine services to its

clients at ship repair yards in China,

such as Guangzhou in nearby

Guangdong Province.

HUD's determination to diversify

its range of services, however,

means that land projects now

account for nearly 50 percent of

activity at its Hong Kong Port yard.

The bulk of its non-marine-related

activity concerns the installation and

maintenance of electrical and

mechanical equipment and the

manufacture of steel structures for

clients, ranging from government

offices and commercial buildings to

industrial plants throughout Hong

Kong and the New Territories.

In addition, projects such as

the starting gates at Happy Valley

race track, the cable for the Victoria

Peak tram, and steel structures

for the newly completed Tsing

Ma Bridge ensure that HUD's

influence in some way touches

the lives of almost every visitor to

Hong Kong.

Experience the wonder of Asia's

spectacular island treasure

Enjoy Hong Kong's fascinating

contrasts, from ancient temples and

modern shopping malls to wildlife

reserves and beautiful beaches, there

is something to delight every visitor

to this glorious island.

THERE is an unmistakable buzz of

excitement about Hong Kong which,

to this day, remains one of the

world's most unique and vibrant

metropolises and a multi-purpose

holiday destination.

From temples that are centuries old

and modern amusement parks, to lush

green forests, sandy beaches, luxury

shopping malls and open-air street

markets, cosmopolitan Hong Kong is

a fascinating mix of old and new,

traditional and high-tech.

The newly created Hong Kong

Special Administrative Region (SAR)

of the People's Republic of China

comprises Hong Kong Island,

Kowloon Peninsula and the New

Territories which, in itself, contains

235 islands, each with its own

distinctive flavour and charm.

Most people appear to come to

Hong Kong to shop, spending an

average of 50 percent of their money

on goods bought at any of its

thousands of specialist shops and

department stores or from traditional

market stalls selling everything from

fruit to fine art and household pets.

Stanley Market, Ocean Park and

Victoria Peak, which should be

scaled at least once by the near

vertical-travelling Victoria Peak tram

and offers a 554 metre high

panoramic view over Hong Kong,

are without doubt Hong Kong's most

popular tourist attractions.

Another 'must-see', accessible by

cable car or escalator, is Ocean

Park. The largest oceanarium in

Southeast Asia, it comprises Water

World, the Middle Kingdom and a

Chinese cultural village and features

attractions such as Atoll Reef, Wave

Cove and Shark Aquarium.

Other popular tourist sites include

Hong Kong Park, a 10 hectare oasis

at the heart of Hong Kong Island,

Repulse Bay, St John's Cathedral, Aw

Boon Haw Gardens, Wong Tai Sin

Temple, Hong Kong Arts Centre and

Science and Space museums.

Hong Kong harbour and the

surrounding waters are, of course, a

tourist attraction in their own right

and can be explored by boarding a

host of vessels ranging from tiny

sampans which provide 20 minute

tours around Aberdeen Harbour, to

motor!sed junks offering seven

hour excursions.

Newer sites of interest for tourists

include the newly opened

international airport at Chek Lap Kok

and the 'Lantau Link' which

incorporates Tsing Ma Bridge, the

world's longest suspension bridge


Stanley Market, one of Hong Kong's most popular tourist attractions.

The magnificent Tsing Ma Bridge is the world's I's largest suspension


bridge, linking the 2.2 kilometre distance between Tsing (j Ti and Ma

Wan islands.

An extensive public transport network exists in Hong Kong, including

trams, buses and trains to take visitors to all the major attractions.

spanning the 2.2 kilometre

distance between Tsing Yi and

Ma Wan islands.

Any kind of food is available in

Hong Kong, which boasts more than

8,000 restaurants ranging from

traditional Cantonese establishments

to burger bars and Indian take-aways.

"Igor's" and "Planet Hollywood" are

two of its newest theme restaurants.

Aberdeen's floating restaurants, only

accessible by motorised sampan, are

also hugely popular with tourists.

Although Chinese is the official

language, English, as you would

expect from a former British colony,

is widely spoken and jointly

displayed on all street signs and

public transport.

Hong Kong certainly enjoys one of

the world's cheapest and most

convenient public transport systems.

Travel options available range from

trams, buses and trains —

Mass Transit Railway (MTR),

Kowloon Canton Railway

(KCR) and Light Rail Transit

(LRT) system — to the famous

Star Ferry which has operated

around-the-clock services

between Central and Tsim

ShaTsui since 1898.

Ferries ranging from jetfoils

and hovercraft to traditional

Star Ferry vessels also provide

rapid connections to the

outlying islands of Cheung

Chau, Lamma and Lantau.

Nearly 30 destinations in

mainland China and

neighbouring Macau are also

accessible by ferry services.

Attractions such as Po Lin

Monastery, which houses the

world's largest seated outdoor

bronze Buddha, and tranquil

Lantaus Tung Chung Fort are

popular retreats for weary Hong

Kong residents as well as

adventurous overseas


The many varied and impressive

tourist attractions in the New



include Chuk Lam

Shim Yuen (Bamboo Forest

Monastery) and the 'Monkey

Hills' of Kam Shan Country

Park, offering a rich tapestry

of scenic contrasts which

incorporates everything from

hilly, rolling woodlands and

skyscraper-engulfed new

towns to wildlife reserves

and sandy beaches.

Indeed the Hong Kong

Tourist Association (HKTA)

has stepped up its overseas

promotion of the often neglected

New Territories and mainland China

as it bids to overcome a slight dip in

Hong Kong's tourism industry since

the 1997 handover.

HKTA's Public Relations

Department Manager, Peter Randall,

said: "Hong Kong is now part of

China and as such should be an

essential stop on any self-respecting

traveller's itinerary along with

destinations such as Beijing, Xian

and Guilin. Hong Kong is not

cheap, but it is becoming better

value for money."

Hong Kong's southerly location

ensures that it enjoys a subtropical

climate characterised by hot, humid

summers and wet, overcast winters.

Autumn, which lasts from October

to December and has an average

daily temperature of 22°C with 70

percent humidity, is probably the

best time to visit.

Leisure travellers and businessmen

from mainland China currently

account for 20 percent of Hong

Kong's 10.5 million overseas

visitors a year.
