With our effort, Hong Kong's trading and logistics has become a pillar industry Hong Kong people are proud of. Meanwhile, HIT is relentlessly committed to corporate social responsibility in environmental protection, education and community services."

"Evolving from a tiny fishing village to one of the world's busiest container ports, Hong Kong's remarkable achievements in maritime industry are the fruit of the joint efforts of everyone in the workforce. HIT, being at the forefront of the maritime industry, has been a significant part of the city's port for the past half-century. The “HIT Gallery", displayed at HKMM, brings together the memories of the maritime industry and unearths untold, behind-the-scenes stories about the prosperity brought about by the container terminals," Mr. Fung added.
