Shanghai: China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), one of the two major state-owned shipbuilding conglomerates, is planning to develop China’s first self-built cruiseship.
Hu Wenming, president of CSSC, is confident about developing China’s first luxury cruiseship, and said the company has been gaining experience in the design, construction and management of cruiseships.
According to Hu, the demand for cruise travelling is increasing rapidly in China and it is expected that Chinese cruise travellers will account for around half of the total global cruise travellers, so it is essential for China to build its own cruiseships.
