Day 4: Modern Terminals – Port of Hong Kong

Today we visited Modern Terminals, Inc. which manages the majority of Hong Kong’s port terminals.  We observed a presentation and question-answer session with Mr. Kelly, CEO, and Gavin Dow.  Mr. Kelly talked in depth about the economic realities of Hong Kong and China, the purpose and operations of Modern Terminals, and explained how Modern Terminals strategizes and implements its plans.

Afterward, we were taken up to the control tower from which we could view 9 different shipping terminals and watch as hundreds of cargo containers were transported.  Modern Terminals provided us with a delicious lunch and allowed us to ride on a company yacht back to Kowloon Peninsula.
