Hubei to set up Yangtze task force

16 April 2014
Hubei provincial governor Wang Guosheng chaired a special meeting last week focusing on the issue of speeding up the development of the Yangtze. He urged the establishment of a special task force involving high-level leaders with a co-ordinating office. The task force is expected to identify all the major issues in developing the Yangtze River, assign them to specific departments and individuals, and set a timetable for completion.

The task force will prioritise building Wuhan into the shipping centre of the middle reaches of the Yangtze, developing industries and logistics, and improving customs and information services. It will also oversee the dredging of the Wuhan-Anqing section to a level of six metres, the Wuhan-Yichang section to 4.5 metres, and the establishment of “Fanba” as a permanent solution that involves transporting cargo by road for a short distance in order to avoid the bottleneck of passing through the Three Gorges shiplocks.
