After the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government eased COVID-19 entry restrictions last month, ending the hotel quarantine requirement for inbound visitors, the city is gearing up to receive a rush of travellers. The Travel Industry Council expects departures to surge as much as 50% over the next few months. To lure visitors back to the city, meanwhile, the Hong Kong Tourism Board is set to offer 500,000 free airline tickets next year once all remaining travel restrictions are dropped.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is putting the logistics system across the world under unprecedented pressure, facilities such as airports and container terminals are uniquely challenged when it comes to adapting to new realities.
Themed “Capturing opportunities amidst volatility”, the 10th edition of the Asian Logistics, Maritime and Aviation Conference (ALMAC) (formerly Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference) will focus on rebuilding supply chain resilience under the new normal, Asia’s evolving role in global supply chains and trendsetting technologies and innovations for reinvigorating logistics operations and management.
