From Birth to Boom in Hong Kong

The International Association of Dredging Companies’ (IADC) Conference, “From Birth to Boom: Asian Maritime Megastructures,” took place at the Island Shangri-La hotel, Hong Kong on October 23, 2015.

Hong Kong was chosen as the location to commemorate the turning point of today’s dredging and maritime infrastructure sector which is rooted in the city’s Airport Core Projects – especially the Chek Lap Kok land reclamation in the 1990s.

At the event, attendees seized the opportunity to probe more deeply into the proposals for the construction of the third runway at Hong Kong airport, as well as investment information on financing infrastructure for developing nations and the global need and search for energy, which continue to shape the policies of China and the Russian Far East.

Some of the speakers were Kevin Poole, Acting Executive Director of Hong Kong’s Third Runway Airport Authority, Elvis Au Wai Kwong of the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department, Tyrrell Duncan, Technical Advisor Transport at the Asian Development Bank and Peter Scott Caldwell, a Chartered Arbitrator and Director of Caldwell Limited, Hong Kong.

Each of them shared insights from his own viewpoint as to the planning, environmental, financial and legal requirements, respectively, of working with maritime infrastructure development in Asia.
