Former CSSC head appointed as Dalian city supremo

Dalian city government has announced that the central government has appointed Tan Zuojun as the new party chief of Dalian, a position within the People’s Republic more senior than a city mayor.

Tan, 49, used to serve as general manager of state-run conglomerate China State Shipbuilding (CSSC) and was also chairman of board at CSSC Holdings. He left the position in July 2012 after he was appointed as vice governor of Liaoning province.

Central government has pointed out that Dalian is key to the economic revival of northeast China, which is now suffering an economic downturn. It is hoped that Tan’s industrial background would help promote the local economy.
