According to the plan, a group of shipbuilding and shipyard enterprises will be built in the city, which are set to handle 100,000-tonnage vessels and other relevant services and equipments. Shipbuilding will be a key industry in Xiamen, a place on the west bank of the Taiwan Straits, which is expected to bring along development of the electro-mechanical sector, steel and tourism, said an official with the local economic development bureau.
