China Floats Idea of Mega Port to Rival Singapore

Beijing is considering a proposal to construct a massive integrated super port across islands south of Hong Kong, consolidating regional port resources to challenge Singapore’s shipping hub status. The infrastructure project, potentially costing over $20bn, is also envisaged as a strategic facility to strengthen trade and economic growth in the country’s south and drive integration of the Greater Bay Area, known as the GBA — a mega-region encompassing nine cities in the Pearl River Delta including Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Guangzhou (source: Lloyd’s List).
