Shipbuilders in China Send New Challenge


“We now lag behind Korean shipbuilding companies. But just give us 10 more years and we will overtake Korea," said Gu Baolong, Chairman of the board at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding. This statement came after alleged refusal by Korean companies to help China build liquefied natural gas tankers. Korean companies appear to be wary of China potential. Japan's Nomura Research Institute forecast that by 2010, China's shipbuilding will outstrip Japan's and will be on par with Korea.

The biggest supporter of China's shipbuilders is the Chinese government, which sticks to the policy that the domestic cargo must be carried by Chinese ships and that Chinese ships must be built in China. With the rapid growth of the domestic economy, the demand for ships is increasing rapidly in China. China has also designated shipbuilding as one of its future leading industries, and is providing the best available support in the development of technologies for large, high value-added ships. China is currently ranked No.3 in the world in shipbuilding, following Korea and Japan.
