Two millionth container handled at ZICT(J)

[3 September 2001 - Hong Kong] Zhuhai International Container Terminals (Jiuzhou) (ZICT(J)) marked a significant historical milestone by handling its two millionth container on 25th August.

Mr. Kwok-Keung Ho, General Manager of ZICT(J), was pleased with the achievement. "This is one of our most significant milestones since commencing operations in 1993. This achievement is a result of the teamwork, service and dedication of our staff and constant support from our customers."

General Manager of Hutchison Delta Ports (HDP) Mr. Alfred Leung said, "Zhuhai Special Economic Zone is one of China's major manufacturing hubs for export goods. Situated next to Macau and Hong Kong, Zhuhai is also one of the Pearl River Delta's major ports. In recent years Zhuhai's container shipping industry has grown tremendously, fuelled by the economic and trade boom in the region. We are confident that the future development of ZICT(J) and the economic growth of Zhuhai S.E.Z. will continue long after China's entry to the WTO."
