     The Secretary for Transport and Logistics, Mr Lam Sai-hung, began his visit programme to Singapore today (January 30).

     In the morning, Mr Lam visited the port in Singapore where he had a bird’s eye view of the Pasir Panjang Terminals. He also visited an exhibition on the Tuas Port, which is currently under development, and was briefed by representatives of PSA International on the latest developments in automated port operations as well as energy conservation and emission reductions.  

     Mr Lam later attended a luncheon to share with trade representatives his views on the developments in transport and logistics, and took the opportunity to promote Hong Kong’s strengths and business opportunities. He pointed out that the pandemic and the latest international landscape had made significant changes to global aviation, maritime and logistics, and led to the emergence of new supply chains. The Transport and Logistics Bureau promulgated in late 2023 two major action plans on the development strategy of modern logistics as well as maritime and port, formulating strategies and action measures in accordance with the latest situation with a view to supporting the sustainable development needs of Hong Kong and enhancing the long-term competitiveness of its trades.

     He also met with officials from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore respectively to exchange views on issues of mutual concern. He also interacted with local trade representatives to learn about the business environment in Singapore, and shed light on Hong Kong’s latest developments in transport and logistics. 

     Mr Lam will continue his visit tomorrow (January 31) and meet with local officials.
