Hutchison Port Holdings Trust's Hong Kong terminal operations 'returning to normal'

HUTCHISON Port Holdings Trust (HPH Trust) said on Monday its Hong Kong container terminal operations are gradually returning to normal, amid continuing industrial action.

The business trust's trustee-manager said that the High Court of Hong Kong is allowing 80 union members to conduct peaceful picketing in a designated staff car park within its terminal's premises. But terminal operations are not expected to be affected, it added.

The trustee-manager continues to work with all parties involved to resolve the industrial action. It believes that the events do not have an adverse material impact on the performance of HPH Trust.

The units fell half a cent to US$0.825.
