Jack Swire's son, John Kidston Swire (1893-1983), known as “Jock”, became Chairman of Swire. Under his leadership, Swire rebuilt its key operational businesses. By 1950, Taikoo Sugar and Taikoo Dockyard were back in full production. With Hong Kong as its home port, China Navigation began to establish new services to Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Its growing network of Pacific Rim services established the pattern for the liner trades in which the company participates to this day.
