On April 25, 2018, Capt. Xu Lirong, Chairman and Party Secretary of COSCO SHIPPING, paid a visit to Mr. Yuan Jiajun, Deputy Secretary of Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee and Governor of Zhejiang Province in Hangzhou. The two sides held cordial and friendly talks on strengthening cooperation. There is a broad space for cooperation in many areas between COSCO SHIPPING and Zhejiang Province. In comprehensively implementing the requirement on high-quality development put forward at the 19th CPC National Congress, COSCO SHIPPING will further increase its investment in Zhejiang Province with joint efforts to advance the development of “green ports, green shipping, and smart shipping” by enhancing cooperation in such fields as marine economy, port shipping, international market, logistics supply chain, new energy, modern shipping service, and advanced equipment manufacturing. Moreover, COSCO SHIPPING will step up cooperation with Zhejiang Provincial Seaport Investment & Operation Group, particularly with Zhoushan Port of Ningbo, to implement the Belt and Road Initiative and boost the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt.
