Dalian, Yingkou ports set to merge in Liaoning port group


Dalian Port said it had "been informed by its controlling shareholder, Dalian Port Corporation that it had received a notice from the Liaoning Provincial People’s Government in relation to a Port Corporation Framework Agreement entered into between Liaoning Government and China Merchants Group”.

The agreement is aimed at working towards a unified operation platform for Liaoning ports and to establish a Liaoning port group combining Dalian Port and Yingkou Port Group Corporation.

Yingkou Port is northeast of Dalian, deeper in the Bohai Bay to serve more inland areas of Liaoning province. Yingkou Port Group has a FTZ and a regular rail connection to Europe which began in 2013 and connects seven cities in four countries in line with the Belt and Road initiative.
