Zhejiang Jingang Shipbuilding Co, the largest private shipbuilder in Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang Province, has filed for bankruptcy

"The company filed for bankruptcy in mid-June as it is unable to meet its debt obligations of over 300 million yuan ($47.1 million),"  Yu Shengyue, director of No. 2 Civil Tribunal of the People's Court of Wenling county where the company is based, informed 'Global Times', .


The major creditors include the local branches of Construction Bank of China, Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China and Zhejiang Materials Industry Group Corp, a State-owned logistics company, according to Yu.

 "The debtor and the creditors are considering reorganization, because the shipbuilding industry is not in good shape and the outlook is not optimistic, either. The company still has a ship order to be delivered," he said.
