Abstract

Hong Kong port used to be the leading position in the world, but it has recently declined. The essay will find out the reason why Hong Kong port loses its leading position; the essay conducts an in-depth study of Hong Kong port and Singapore port: comparing the features and patterns of Singapore port and Hong Kong port; listing the data of Singapore port, Hong Kong port, Shenzhen port and Guangzhou port from 2004 to 2020; analyzing the de-velopment trend of these ports. The essay concludes with two reasons explaining the decline of Hong Kong port. One is that the user base of Hong Kong port is weak, and the other is that Hong Kong port has no geographical advantage over its competitors.
