Hong Kong Maritime Industry Council

The Hong Kong Maritime Industry Council (MIC) is a high-level advisory body chaired by the Secretary for Economic Development and Labour and is made up of key players in the private sector and of government officials. It advises the Government on the formulation of measures and initiatives to develop further Hong Kong's maritime industry. It also assists the Government in promoting Hong Kong's maritime services and Hong Kong's status as an international maritime centre.

There are two task forces under the MIC: the Human Resources Task Force tackles education, training and manpower supply issues while the Maritime Services Task Force deals with promoting the industry and strengthening its competitiveness.

The MIC launched a Ship Repair Training Incentive Scheme in August to ensure that Hong Kong has a quality ship-repair workforce. The scheme provides financial incentives to attract young people and suitable workers from other industries to join the ship-repair sector. The council conducted shipping missions to different cities on the Mainland, including Qingdao, Tianjin, Shanghai and Xiamen, to promote Hong Kong's port and maritime services and to exchange views on the latest developments in the maritime industry.
