Greater China

Chinese minister makes shipbuilding vow

Copenhagen: Su Bo, China’s vice-minister of industry and information technology, vowed this morning to seek greater international cooperation as the nation looks to grow its shipping and shipbuilding prowess. Speaking at the inaugural Danish Maritime Forum in Copenhagen, Su noted how China had built up world-leading orderbooks at its shipyards, but it would seek to rise up the ranks further.

“We are trying to reach international standards in global shipbuilding,” he said, paying particular attention to ambitious LNG and offshore projects.  

“In the coming years Chinese shipping will raise the standards of technology and quality,” Su vowed.  [08/10/14]
