China's reform and opening up over the past decades has brought huge economic development to the port city of Dalian in northeast China's Liaoning Province, making it a destination that draws in increasing foreign investment.
The ore terminal in the Port of Dalian is one of the largest terminals of its kind in China, capable of harboring 400,000-ton ore ships. The terminal has also become highly automated, which helps facilitate more efficient handling of goods.
"We are able to unload about 180,000 tons of goods around the clock. For this ship, it can be unloaded within two days," said Shi Chengmin, the deputy general manager of a bulk cargo terminal company, as he supervised the unloading of a recently arrived vessel at the port.
In addition, the port situated in the Bohai Bay also has world-leading berths for 450,000-ton oil tankers and 200,000-ton container ships.
To better promote opening up, the city has built several development and free trade zones and has greatly streamlined the administrative authorities approvals' procedures.
"We reduced restrictions, improved the service quality and stimulated multiple market growth to maintain Dalian's strong competitiveness in the northeast region," said Liu Guozhi, deputy director of Dalian Municipal Bureau of Commerce.
