Hong Kong shipowners delighted with new maritime museum location

Hong Kong: After months of uncertainty Hong Kong's maritime museum looks set for a relocation from Stanley to Pier 8 overlooking Victoria Harbour in the heart of the central business district. Money is coming from the government and also likely the Hong Kong Jockey Club to fund the HK$120m move. The new location, where the famous Star Ferry plies the waters to Kowloon, is expected to be larger than the original incarnation at Murray House in Stanley. [20/10/08]
