PostTime:2017-06-15 09:01:57 View:61

More consolidation is inching along in the China maritime sector as authorities now seem to turn their attention to the port sector, with Dalian Port announcing that it will enter into a cooperation agreement with China Merchants Group (CMG) and the Liaoning government. The company said in a stock market announcement that had "been informed by its controlling shareholder, Dalian Port Corporation that it had received a notice from the Liaoning Provincial People’s Government in relation to a Port Corporation Framework Agreement entered into between Liaoning Government and China Merchants Group”. The giant CMG is the parent of China Merchants Holdings (International) (CMHI), which in turn is a substantial shareholder of Dalian Port. The agreement is aimed at working towards a unified operation platform for Liaoning ports and to establish a Liaoning port group combining Dalian Port and Yingkou Port Group Corporation, which will ultimately lead to the integration of the port management of Liaoning province. The Liaoning government is expected to support CMG’s investment into Liaoning Port Group which is expected to be incorporated and set up by the end of the year. The somewhat ambitious timeline to complete the integration of other ports management entities within Liaoning Province is by the end of 2018. CMG is also seen as taking the lead in the management of Liaoning Port Group and promoting the business reorganization and structure optimization of the ports under the jurisdiction of Liaoning Port Group.The move is aimed at "enhancing the cooperation and development of ports, international  competitiveness, promoting the development of shipping centres and related industries with Liaoning Port Group as the core enterprise," Dalian Port said in its announcement. It warned however that "as at the date of this announcement, the specific cooperation measures with respect to the cooperation are unknown to the company". "The board wishes to emphasize that the agreement is a framework agreement, it is uncertain that whether, when and how the company will be integrated and how the company will be affected," it concluded..In May this year, the Jiangsu Port Group was formed through the consolidation of the two major port companies in the province, Nanjing Port and Lianyungang Port. It is meant to reduce competition and maximise economies of scale while increasing efficiency of the Belt and Road initiative. Yingkou Port is northeast of Dalian, deeper in the Bohai Bay to serve more inland areas of Liaoning province. Yingkou Port Group has a FTZ and a regular rail connection to Europe which began in 2013 and connects seven cities in four countries in line with the Belt and Road initiative.

Northeast China's Yingkou Port highlights strengths as it prepares for future growth

PostTime:2010-12-30 07:56:18 View:554

CHINA'S north-eastern ports have seen rapid growth over the course of the past few years, excluding the hiccup of the 2009 downturn. One of the up and coming ports in the region is the Port of Yingkou, the region's second largest port and China's 10th largest. As one of the major bulk cargo seaports in China, its cargo throughput exceeded 200 million tonnes in November 2010, in which container throughput accounted for 30 per cent, or 60 million tonnes. Port officials are projecting a total of three million TEU in 2010, up 29 per cent year on year.The Container Shipping Manager recently had the opportunity to speak with Yingkou's vice president, Yao Ping, to find out more on the port's development and prospects going forwardThe Port expects to double the cargo throughput to 400 million tonnes in the next five years, according to its developments plans. "As the tenth largest port nationwide, the Port of Yingkou's brand awareness is much lower than the Port of Shanghai, the Port of Shenzhen, or even another northeast Chinese Port of Dalian," said Mr Yao. "However, it has a long and brilliant history indeed. It commenced international shipping 150 years ago and was once the only port for foreign trade in northeast China." The Port has strategic advantages in both location and size, the senior executive added. It is situated next to the Bohai Economic Rim, the economic hinterland surrounding the largest of the northern Chinese cities of Beijing, Tianjin and Shijiazhuang, and the Northeast China Revitalization area, which includes the Three Northeast Provinces: Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning, the old industrial bases of north China.

When the Fengli left the ore terminal at the port of Yingkou on Nov 19, loaded with ore, it was a milestone for the port- it had handled 200 million tons of freight in 2010, putting it in second place in Liaoning, and ninth in China. That same day, container traffic at the port, for 2010, hit a new high - 3-million twenty-foot-equivalent units (TEU) - setting a new port record. "Liaoning province's marine development strategy has contributed a lot to Yingkou port's development," said Gao Baoyu, head of the port. Liaoning's coastal development has also boosted the whole province's economy. Revamp The State Council approved the Liaoning Coastal Economic Belt Development Plan as part of a national strategy, on July 1, 2009. "The nation's support was the biggest motivator in local economic development. It's a milestone in Liaoning history. The coastal economic belt will stimulate the economy of the whole province and even Northeast Asia," said Feng Guisheng, head of the Liaoning Social Sciences Academy's economic research institute. The Yingkou development has demonstrated the effect of government support. Five years ago, its Bayuquan development zone was just an ordinary fishing town. Now, it has a myriad of tall buildings and throngs with visitors. Wang Libang, who is 63, does his morning exercises in Bixiashan Park. Looking around at the broad avenues and high-rise buildings around the park, he told China Daily, excitedly, "Bayuquan feels like Shenzhen where I've worked, it's developed so fast, even faster than Shenzhen." Wang is right. Bayuquan's economic indicators were up 30 percent from 2006 to 2010. This year, its GDP is expected to reach 40 billion yuan, with revenues of 2 billion yuan, or 5.7 times what they were in 2006. Back in the early 1990s, a UN Development Program delegation commented in a statement to the Chinese government that, "the Bayuquan Economic Zone has advantages in industry, natural resources, technology, geographical position and port conditions, superior to any development zone in China." The delegation also predicted that "Yingkou will develop into a major international port and distribution center in Northeast China, the eastern part of the (then) Soviet Union, Mongolia and the inner Mongolia autonomous region. And it will become a scientific metropolis with prosperous economy with a galaxy of talent." That prediction, it seems, is becoming true, step by step, thanks to the Liaoning Coastal Economic Belt Development Plan. The development of Yingkou is an example of Liaoning's speed and the new look of Liaoning's economic and scientific development. The GDP of the Liaoning Coastal Economic Belt increased 372.4 billion yuan since 2005. In 2009, it had doubled to 761.4 billion yuan. "For Liaoning province, the major significance of the development of the coastal economic belt is that it has stimulated the interaction between the coastal area and the interior, activating the economy of the whole province," said Tang Shenfei, secretary-general of Liaoning's opening-up office.
