Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


Many multinational companies are relocating its Asian regional centres from Hong Kong to Shanghai, despite the greater sophistication of Hong Kong's economic infrastructural support, its superior logistic channels, governance structures and its trained manpower. Hong Kong has to face new challenges on creative and flexible supply chain management and logistics strategies to lift its competitiveness. This paper assesses the current situation of both PRD and Hong Kong in terms of their roles in the Pearl River Delta's supply chains. It then identifies the challenges and opportunities for supply chain management by contrasting this situation with Shanghai and the Yangtze River Delta.
