  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HK2021-0036

Though recent COVID-related challenges are causing port slowdowns elsewhere in the region, local sources report that port operations in Hong Kong remain largely smooth though turnaround times have increased. Hong Kong importers adapted to the global shipping delays of the past year by placing orders further in advance to account for unpredictable arrival dates. As a result, retail and foodservice industries have adequate supplies.
