Hong Kong: flats over the container terminal?

This is one of the solutions being studied by the government to meet the strong pressure for housing. The other option would be to relocate the terminal concerned, Kwai Tsing Container Terminal, which currently handles 80% of the territory’s traffic. For the Managing Director, the first option is worth considering and technically feasible. It could provide housing for tens of thousands of people. Relocating the 380-hectare terminal, on the other hand, raises the difficulty of finding an alternative site. A joint port-city solution which is unprecedented to say the least! It will be proposed to the public in March.

The Rotterdam Makers District is officially launched

This common initiative by the City and the Port will bring together RDM Rotterdam and M4H Rotterdam, which are on opposite sides of the river. Participants in last year’s AIVP world conference saw for themselves how RDM Rotterdam has created an association between the Port, Rotterdam University and the business sector to encourage innovation in the shipping economy. The other bank, once occupied by fruit-shipping activities, is gradually being settled by innovative companies, offices linked to the design industry and Port XL.
