Nearly 70 experts and leaders from the logistics and maritime industries are speaking at the ninth Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference (ALMC) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The two-day conference, jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), is one of the largest events of its kind in Asia.
Frank Chan, Secretary for Transport and Housing of the HKSAR, addressed the opening session at which HKTDC Executive Director Margaret Fong delivered welcome remarks, saying “Hong Kong has been going through a challenging time. But all HKTDC events have gone ahead as planned and have been well attended. This is a vote of confidence in the city’s role as an international business platform. ALMC remains committed to its goal: to provide a forum for learning, sharing and exchange among industry players, and to help chart the path forward for the industry. The event underlines Hong Kong’s role as the region’s logistics, maritime and aviation hub.”
