Connectivity of goods, capital, and people would not be possible without transportation and logistics networks. A free port, mature trading infrastructure, and a good geographic location are all vital characteristics for a country or locale to develop into a centre for logistics and supply chain management. As trade across the world — including the Belt and Road countries — is continuously growing, logistics and transportation networks need to be further developed. Since Hong Kong has functioned as an international trading port for more than a century-and-a-half and has various well-developed facilities for fostering international trade, its role should not be underestimated. Research will focus on China’s efforts to develop transportation and logistics networks, especially in the Belt and Road regions, and on Hong Kong’s role in connecting Mainland China and the world.
