The company's shipbuilding orders total more than 260 million tons, up 84 percent year-on-year. Major ship factories had been fully scheduled until 2010.

Latest statistics showed that the company's total revenue reached 87.1 billion yuan ($12.2 billion) in 2007, while the revenue from main business and the profit stood at 80.6 billion yuan and five billion yuan, respectively.
