On 27 February, a group of 27 delegates from the Hong Kong Maritime & Port Board (HKMPB) led by Prof Anthony Cheung, Hong Kong Secretary for Transport & Housing, visited Lloyd’s in London.

Lloyd’s Chief Commercial Officer Vincent Vandedael, who was accompanied by 15 representatives from the Lloyd’s market, met with the HKMPB delegation to give them a tour of our headquarters. This was followed by a networking lunch in the Boston dining room during which the delegation and Lloyd’s market representatives exchanged insights on recent developments within the global and Hong Kong maritime sector and how Hong Kong and the UK could best collaborate to grasp the business opportunities in Asia under the Belt and Road Initiative.

The visit refreshed the HKMPB’s friendship with Lloyd’s after its last visit to the UK two years ago.
