THE CHAIR­MAN OF OOCL DIS­CUSSES FUEL-SWITCH­ING AT BERTH “EN­ACT­ING LEG­IS­LA­TION TO RE­QUIRE ALL VES­SELS BERTHING IN HONG KONG TO USE CLEAN FUEL WOULD CRE­ATE A MUCH-NEEDED LEVEL PLAY­ING FIELD SO EV­ERY­ONE CON­TRIB­UTES TO THE COST OF IM­PROV­ING THE EN­VI­RON­MENT, RATHER THAN PUTTING THOSE WHO VOL­UN­TAR­ILY USE CLEAN FUEL AT A COM­PET­I­TIVE DIS­AD­VAN­TAGE. IT IS EN­COUR­AG­ING TO KNOW THE GOV­ERN­MENT HAS AL­READY SOUGHT FEED­BACK FROM THE BUSINESS COM­MU­NITY ON THE LEG­ISLA­TIVE OP­TION. WE LOOK FOR­WARD TO CON­TIN­U­ING OUR DI­A­LOGUE WITH THEM TO­WARDS A REG­U­LA­TION THAT OF­FERS THE MOST BEN­E­FI­CIAL IM­PACT ON THE EN­VI­RON­MENT AND COM­MU­NITY, NOT JUST FOR HONG KONG, BUT ALSO FOR THE EN­TIRE PEARL RIVER DELTA, BY WORK­ING WITH THE GOV­ERN­MENT AU­THOR­I­TIES IN THE RE­GION.”
