A rivalry at sea

In the last few decades, the ports of Hong Kong and Singapore have dominated the top two slots in the global league table of busiest container ports. Except for three years (1990, 1991 and 1998, when Singapore briefly held first place), Hong Kong has been the busiest container port between 1987 and 2004.
In 2005, the Lion City overtook Hong Kong in terms of containers handled and has held first place ever since.
