A total investment of about 7.5 billion yuan has set the stage for a new dock in Nansha Port. The Guangzhou Port Nansha Port International General Dock Project, a key construction project sponsored by the Guangdong Province and Guangzhou City, officially commenced recently.
This project has been included in the "Infrastructure Interconnection Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area" issued by the National Development and Reform Commission.
Once completed, this project will improve the infrastructure service of Guangzhou Port, further fortifying the international competitiveness of the world-class port cluster in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The terminal will be connected to the Nansha Port Railway and the planned logistics park in the rear.
After the completion of the project, the total length of the coastline of Nansha Port Area will exceed 16 kilometers, making it a modern port area with large scale, comprehensive service, and multimodal transport in South China.
