Dalian: There’s just three weeks before the next edition of SinoShip magazine arrives on the desks of all the owners, managers and yard bosses across Greater China. Issue Three of SinoShip magazine carries plenty of vital exclusive information for anyone involved in China maritime.
Excerpts from SinoShip’s LNG White Paper form our LNG feature in which we crunch the numbers to come up with the following prediction: China will spend more than $12bn through to 2020 on gas carriers.
Anyone dealing with China maritime needs to be fully aware of the nation’s legal set up. SinoShip has contacted all the leading international and local lawyers to go through all the latest key legal changes the industry needs to be aware of. Our legal feature has been bolstered by the addition of our latest writer, Engen Tham, formerly a lawyer with Norton Rose in Shanghai.
With the fleets in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan among the fastest growing in the world, top flags are rushing to the region to offer their services. SinoShip investigates how registries try and position themselves here.
This issue’s offshore focus looks at wind turbine installation vessels, a sector China is trying to dominate. Our regular Economy page, written by veteran Shanghai-based economist Paul French, provides some cause for optimism amidst the doomsayers following recent projections of 7.6% GDP growth this year. Our Profile pages carry interviews with four wise shipowners, all of whom have taken different, but successful actions to counter the downturn. Among the regular Hubs pages, we identify the weaknesses in Shanghai’s financial set up, and we look at why shipbuilders are choosing Hong Kong to set up dedicated owner subsidiaries.
