History of the Hong Kong Maritime Industry before World War II

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Hong Kong is located at 22° 8ʹ to 22° 35ʹ north, and 13° 49ʹ to 114° 31ʹ east, with a land area of around 1,100 square kilometres. The region is built on narrow coastal strips, which border rugged terrains declining steeply into the sea. In addition to its strategic location, Hong Kong benefits from the deep and sheltered Victoria Harbour in between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula, offering safe anchorage to various seaborne traffic. It is not only a well-known landmark of Hong Kong but also an essential element in this world-class maritime hub.
