Guangdong plans to spend US$36.6 billion by 2010 to expand road and river transport and build ports, the South China Morning Post reported. US$25.2 billion would be spent on road construction, US$11 billion on ports and US$441 million on river transport, Wang Zhirong, the provincial Transport Department's disciplinary and inspection section chief, told a news conference on the province's 11th Five-Year Development Programme agenda in Guangzhou Wednesday.

We have to consider opening up the sector completely for private investment and issuing bonds to raise capital," he said
