The government of northeast Liaoning province announced plans to spend RMB72bn (US$8.7bn) to build coastal ports over the next five years, raising total annual cargo handling capacity to 579bn tons by 2010.

Plans call for building deep-water berths for handling oil, ore and containers, and upgrading multi-purpose berths for coal, grain, chemicals, rolled steel and automobiles.
