Edward Liu reappointed to Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board
Maritime Law specialist Hill Dickinson’s position at the centre of the Hong Kong shipping services sector has been further emphasised by the reaffirmation of its place on an important maritime board.
Edward Liu, Hill Dickinson counsel in Hong Kong, has been reappointed by the Secretary for Transport and Housing as a co-opted member of the Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board (HKMPB), the advisory body of the Transport and Housing Bureau of the HKSAR Government, and will serve for a two year period.
HKMPB provides a high-level platform for the Government to work in partnership with the industry on the long-term development of Hong Kong’s maritime and port industry.
During his previous tenure (from April 2018 to April 2020), Mr Liu, a Hong Kong Registered Foreign Lawyer, served on the Maritime and Port Development Committee. Through this latest term, which spans 2020 to 2022, he will be a member of the Promotion and External Relations Committee which advises on strategies and measures to promote Hong Kong as a maritime services hub and a competitive port.
Welcoming Mr Liu’s appointment, Damien Laracy, head of Hill Dickinson’s Hong Kong office, said: “We congratulate Edward on this important appointment which further consolidates Hill Dickinson’s role at the heart of Hong Kong’s maritime hub and enables us to play a central role in the development of Hong Kong’s shipping sector.”
Mr Liu commented: “I am pleased to be reappointed to the HKMPB and look forward to working closely with my committee colleagues to raise Hong Kong’s maritime profile.”
