As the overall plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is about to be released later this year, the forum specifically focused on how this plan will affect the shipping and logistics development around Guangzhou Port, especially the Nansha Port area.
Pan Yuzhang, Deputy Director of Management Committee of the Nansha Free Trade Zone, stressed that Nansha is located at the geographic center of the Bay Area and had the innate qualities needed to develop the port industries.
In 2017, Guangzhou Port’s container throughput reached 20.3 million TEUs while Nansha Port reached 14 million TEUs with a 10.45-percent increase year on year. Nansha Port currently operates 177 routes, 85 of which are international.
