Blue paper on evaluation of China's cruise ports in 2018 released
BEIJING, China, Jan. 11, 2019 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

The first blue paper on evaluation of China's cruise ports in 2018 was released 
in Beijing on Wednesday, aiming to guide China's domestic cruise ports to 
improve technical facilities, equipment and services and push the cruise 
industry into a new stage of development.

The report was compiled jointly by China Waterborne Transport Research 
Institute under the Ministry of Transport and China Economic Information 
Service (CEIS) under Xinhua News Agency.

According to the report, the domestic cruise market is entering a new stage of 
steady and high-quality development from a rapid development stage. In terms of 
infrastructure, China's cruise ports have already taken the lead among the 
global peers. However, in the areas of cruise port operations and port 
services, a large gap still exists compared with the internationally mature 
ports.

The report shows that China's cruise ports are unevenly developed. Shanghai 
Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal, Shenzhen Shekou Cruise Home Port, 
Tianjin International Cruise Home Port, and Xiamen International Cruise Center 
enjoy obvious advantages over other domestic ports, ranking in the first tier.
