Sailing from past to present on the maritime silk road
A particular mission of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum is to compare the technology of modern shipping with maritime travel of the past, according to Richard Wesley. The Museum’s Director says historical links with trade on the Maritime Silk Road are well illustrated while large numbers of today’s visitors want to understand why Hong Kong is “special”, with very many years of shipping expertise from shipbuilding to modern logistics.
