The Yangtze River, a busy golden waterway, has spawned an economic belt that traverses the eastern, central, and western parts of China and extends to the North and the South. Located at the intersection of the Yangtze River Golden Waterway and the North-South Sea Transportation Channel and connecting the Yangtze River to the ocean, Zhejiang is a major province opening up to the outside in China. In recent years, Zhejiang has always been committed to building a new open economic system and becoming an open platform for the joint development of the land and the ocean in the Yangtze River economic belt. To this end, the construction of a modern integrated transportation system is an important foundation and a driving force.


“Integrated transportation is a weak aspect in development that is mainly focused on during the period of the 13th Five-Year Plan in Zhejiang Province. Mainly concentrating on the smooth flow of the navigation channels, the intercommunication of the hubs, the connection between the Yangtze River and the sea and the direct passage of the customs formalities, and the construction of the comprehensive three-dimensional traffic throughway for the Yangtze River Economic Belt.” The person from Zhejiang Provincial Development and Planning Commission who is charge of this project said that in the first half of this year, Zhejiang Province has achieved an investment of 118 billion yuan in comprehensive transportation projects, an increase of 11% year-on-year. During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, this province will implement a trillion-dollar comprehensive transportation project, to basically build a modern comprehensive transportation system with multiple dimensions, interconnections, safety and convenience, and greenness and intelligence.
