Shipping business strategies and development of the Hong Kong Maritime Industry

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

On August 15, 1945, the Japanese Emperor proclaimed that Japan had unconditionally surrendered. The Royal Navy entered Hong Kong waters in late August, and the region was under military administration until Governor Sir Mark Young returned on May 1, 1946. During this period of time, rehabilitation of the harbor was of chief importance, given that sea transportation served as the main internal and external link for food, coal, labor and so on.
