[photopress:ningpo_1.jpg,full,alignright]Ningbo Bonded Logistics Park opened April 11 and in the two months since opening foreign trade in the park has reached $6.93 million dollars.
Cargo throughput was 3.906 thousand tons and there are now 30 enterprises dedicated to logistics with the park.
Ningpo, a city of about 800,000 in the municipal area (the greater Ningpo area has a population of six million) thus seems set as one of the major seaports of China. What, perhaps, it should not do is go back to fishing.
In a splendid book called The Junks and Sampans of the Yangtze, G.R.G Worchester wrote ‘no people in the world apparently made so great an advance in the art of fishing; and for centuries past no people have made so little further progress.’
