Nanjing, China, hosts shipbuilders, customers at annual CIMPS-Europort show in Nanjing City
The maritime exhibition CIMPS-Europort 2012 will be held from 23 – 25 May in Nanjing, the capital of the province of Jiangsu. This province is the top shipbuilding region of China. With more than 80 large shipyards, shipbuilding in Jiangsu comprises 35% of the total shipbuilding output in China.
No less than 39% of all new shipbuilding orders in China are realised in Jiangsu. The Jiangsu region is increasingly orientated towards advanced technology and 'special purpose ships'. The local supply industry cannot meet the greatly increased demand, so that approximately 70% of all products are imported, which offers opportunities for international maritime suppliers.
At CIMPS-Europort the organizers plan to establish one-to-one contact with Chinese shipyards, shipowners and ship designers: CSSC, CSIC, Ch Rongsheng, Nantong COSCO, Dayang Shipyards, New Century Shipyards, Yangtze River Shipyards and Kouan Shipyards will all be in attendance.
CIMPS-Europort is jointly organised by Europort/Ahoy Rotterdam and UAEC and is one of the world's largest international maritime exhibitions.
