City Profiles

The eight provinces and municipalities along the navigable Yangtze trunkline, from Sichuan in the west to Shanghai in the east, are home to about one-third of the national population and an even larger share of China’s economic output. In manufacturing terms, they account for 31 per cent of national crude steel output and 39 per cent of automobile production.

There are 220 ports of different sizes along the navigable stretch of the Yangtze, of which 24 (excluding Shanghai) are deemed the most important. These ports play a vital role in transporting raw materials, components and finished goods to and from the industrial bases. Twenty-one of them are Category One ports, open to foreign vessels, while the remaining three – Luzhou, Wanzhou and Yichang –are Category Two ports, open to Chinese vessels involved in foreign trade. Jingzhou has applied for Category One status and expects to be approved by the end of 2008.

Yangtze Transport: Accessing China's Interior contains in-depth profiles on all the 24 port cities, including sections on the overall economy, leading industries, major investors, transport infrastructure and the logistics experience of foreign manufacturers.
