Shanghai Representative Office (hereinafter “Shanghai Office”) on 1st August 2017.
Chinese shipowners are progressing rapidly as the Chinese government advocates the Belt and Road Initiative with the target of becoming a maritime trade superpower. The objective of the Shanghai Office is to strengthen relationships with these shipowners by regularly calling on them and conducting market research, thereby gathering information on a timely basis for more effective and efficient business expansion.
TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING has sought to expand its shipbuilding business in China especially with TSUNEISHI GROUP (ZHOUSHAN) SHIPBUILDING, Inc. (Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, China). Its presence is enhanced by being the first 100% foreign capital company to be named to the shipbuilding “white list” (a list of companies that meet China’s shipyard evaluation criteria) in May 2017. TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING will push for further growth by establishing activities in the shipping industry in Shanghai, which has seen remarkable expansion in recent years.
