BEIJING, China, Jan. 11, 2019 (Antara/Xinhua-AsiaNet)--

The first blue paper on evaluation of China's cruise ports in 2018 was released in Beijing on Wednesday, aiming to guide China's domestic cruise ports to improve technical facilities, equipment and services and push the cruise industry into a new stage of development.

The report was compiled jointly by China Waterborne Transport Research Institute under the Ministry of Transport and China Economic Information Service (CEIS) under Xinhua News Agency.

According to the report, the domestic cruise market is entering a new stage of steady and high-quality development from a rapid development stage. In terms of infrastructure, China's cruise ports have already taken the lead among the global peers. However, in the areas of cruise port operations and port services, a large gap still exists compared with the internationally mature ports.

The report shows that China's cruise ports are unevenly developed. Shanghai Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal, Shenzhen Shekou Cruise Home Port, Tianjin International Cruise Home Port, and Xiamen International Cruise Center enjoy obvious advantages over other domestic ports, ranking in the first tier.
