In cooperation with the Hong Kong Government, Capital Link is honored to organize a forum that will open the Hong Kong Maritime Week (HKMW) on Monday, November 18, 2019. The Capital Link Hong Kong Forum will take place in conjunction with and immediately after the Opening Ceremony of the HKMW. The Forum will commence at 10.00 am and will conclude by 6.00 pm.


There are several initiatives under way aiming to reinforce Hong Kong’s position as a major hub for the global shipping industry, which will be highlighted during the Forum and the HKMW.


Capital Link's Hong Kong Maritime Forum will discuss hot topics of critical significance for the industry and for Hong Kong, featuring industry leaders from the global and the Hong Kong maritime communities. A number of global industry leaders are coming to Hong Kong for this Forum and the HKMW  to exchange views, discuss and debate with their Hong Kong counterparts.


The Forum will provide an overview of the developments and outlook of the various shipping markets and will discuss topics on the Greater Bay Area, the challenges of technology and the environmental regulations, the changing landscape in finance and capital markets, the significance of seafarers welfare & training, and will conclude with high level discussions on the future direction of the industry and its transformational impact on shipping.


Capital Link’s Forums are well known for their large attendance by shipowners, financiers, investors and a wider audience of industry participants. They provide rich informational content coupled with unique networking opportunities. We look forward to having you with us in Hong Kong!
