Hong Kong has been facing severe competition from the neighbouring ports (sea and air) in the region. Recently, the discussion has been sharpened with the announcement of 11th 5-year Programme. The issue that Hong Kong will continue to be a shipping &/or logistics centre is a matter of both central planning and self reviving act. Hong Kong enterprises have been "self-blessing" and proved this success formula in the recently announced urban competitiveness report. However, in the area of macro planning, Hong Kong companies needs their government to foster a conducive environment for them to compete in the Mainland. As long as it is a level playing field across, there is no reason why the success story will not go on.
